Kids Dig Food

presents our first Feed Your Picky Eater parent Webinar for 2020…

This workshop is being held ONLINE. 

Join us in the Kids Dig Food virtual meeting room via our Zoom link. We’ll send you the link once you’ve booked your spot.

The workshop is suitable for parents of kids aged 1-12 years old. From young children who have recently transitioned to solid foods right through to parents of late primary school age kids.

Need help to feed your picky eater? 

We’ve got your back.

If you are reading this, our guess is that that feeding your kids hasn’t always been easy for you.

Our bet is that you’ve had many a moment where you’ve thought at least one of these things:

  • Why won’t my 3-year-old just eat her dinner? 
  • Why do I even bother? They never eat it anyway!
  • He’s 8-years-old now and still won’t he eat his veggies!
  • How have I found myself held to ransom by a 4-year-old and a box of chicken nuggets?
  • Why does every family mealtime end up in disaster?

We know that feeding kids can be HARRRD work. We know that you want to feed your kids nourishing foods and you want them to grow to be happy and healthy humans. You’re sick and tired of mealtimes being unpleasant and stressful.

Attend this workshop from your couch.

By popular demand, we are offering this workshop in the cozy Kids Dig Food virtual Zoom meeting room, so you can join us from wherever you are… Coffee, tea, or something stronger in hand!

The workshop will also be recorded and available to you to watch back afterwards. The link will be live for 1 month post-workshop.

There will be opportunity for discussion, questions and trouble-shooting your feeding challenges all from the comfort of your couch or office.

If you are struggling with feeding your picky eater, our workshop will help. We also know that the EARLIER you set your family on a helpful feeding path, the better.

Don’t put it off.

Experience has shown us that things tend to get harder, NOT easier with time if you are on struggle-street.

Picture this… You. In a VIRTUAL room with the Kids Dig Food team and a group of parents just like you. A place and time that you can dedicate to finding some REAL solutions for feeding your family in the way you have always dreamed. We promise to give you the knowledge and confidence to start your picky eater on the road to learning to like new foods, and to create more peaceful family mealtimes. Your dining table or kitchen bench will become a place of learning instead of a battle-ground. You will even walk away with your own personal PLAN (if you are ready for it!) to begin managing fussy eating in a fruitful and responsive way.

Get ready to put food battles and worries about your family’s nutrition behind you.

You’ll be supported by other parents and carers who are determined to learn how to feed their picky eaters without going crazy.

Join us!

Will the Feed your Picky Eater parent workshop help me?

Yes! If you have tried EVERYTHING to get your child to eat and you don’t know what to do next
Yes! If you dread family mealtimes

  • What your kids need from you at meal and snack time

Reviews from previous participants:

It’s been 3 weeks & the changes I’m seeing in my daughter’s eating habits are amazing! It’s definitely a slow road but persistence & the knowledge & tools I gained from the webinar will make it an easy road instead of a non stop struggle! I highly recommend this webinar if you have an older child my daughter is 5 and I learnt so much! Anonymous – Webinar participant, September 2019

Great practical ideas, they reassure me I am not alone in my family’s food journey. Strategies that I can implement into our routine. Removed my anxiety that I am doing the right thing. Lee, Biggera Waters – Workshop participant, October 2018

Great Workshop, thank you very much. Definitely feel like I have lots of practical tips to now put into place. Cara, Manly – Workshop participant, October 2018

Food has been such a stressful topic in our house, but the tools and information shared by Deb are the light at the end of the tunnel. I’ll be implementing the things I learned ASAP. Thanks!  Michael, Mitchelton – Workshop participant, March 2018
