Help for Parents and Caregivers of Picky and Selective Eaters

Amy Gardner / October 24, 2023

Calling all parents of picky and selective eaters!

Do you worry your child isn’t getting enough nutrition? Concerned about sugar intake? Does your child’s limited food selection make you doubt your parenting? Do you feel defensive about your child’s eating habits when in family or social settings?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you’re in good company!

Many parents we work with worry about their child(ren)’s limited repertoire of foods. They blame themselves and feel they are falling short as parents because they just can’t “get their child to eat”. Myrese Nochomowitz, MPH, RDN specializes in selective eating and Avoidant and Restrictive Food Disorder (AFRID) and offers great insights and suggestions on how to approach this very common issue.

Great news! Your child’s picky and/or selective eating IS NOT YOUR FAULT!  And we want to help you see that.

In this workshop, Myrese will help you better understand what picky and selective eating is all about and what drives it. She’ll also share best strategies to approach it and offer a lot of reassurance and support to parents.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • Contributing factors to picky and selective eating
  • Common nutrition myths and misconceptions
  • Why “picky eaters” are drawn to certain foods over others
  • How to manage snacking

You will also connect with other parents experiencing the same thing and receive peace of mind about how you’re helping your child shape a positive relationship with food.

There will be ample time for questions and discussion.  A recording will be made available to everyone who registers.


Offered at two dates/ times:

  • Tuesday, November 14th 7-8:30 PM
  • Wednesday, November 15th 12-1:30 PM

Cost: $80

Recording will be sent to all registrants
