Overview: From babies to teenagers, parents often struggle with the best way to feed their children. Dietitians can help by playing an integral role in advising parents on how to overcome picky eating habits and weight concerns in kids while encouraging positive mealtime behaviors. This talk will review baby-led weaning as a practical and safe approach for feeding babies and encouraging a healthy relationship with food from the start. Andrea will also review how to help parents implement Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility in their home so that families can all enjoy the experience of sharing pleasant family mealtimes together.

Objectives:
• Identify how our relationship with food develops overtime and how parent feeding practices can play a role in shaping their child’s eating habits
• Understand Baby-Led Weaning as a safe and practical approach to starting solids for babies
• Learn practical tips for helping parents implement the division of responsibility while feeding their children
