For Parents

Mealtimes can often become battlegrounds for parents of picky eaters. In this webinar, we will delve into the underlying factors contributing to fussy eating behaviours, focusing on sensory processing and Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID).

We'll start by exploring sensory processing and its impact on a child's relationship with food, ranging from texture aversions to flavour sensitivity. We will then examine ARFID, a less commonly recognised but significant eating disorder characterised by severe food aversions and a restricted dietary intake, often stemming from sensory issues or negative experiences in the past.

The webinar will offer practical strategies to assist your child in broadening their food preferences and creating a positive mealtime atmosphere. We will cover sensory-friendly meal suggestions, desensitisation techniques, and methods for gradually introducing new foods without overwhelming your child. Furthermore, we will offer advice on recognising signs of ARFID and when to seek professional help.

This webinar is crucial for parents who wish to transform stressful mealtimes into opportunities for their child's growth and exploration. Understanding the root causes of fussy eating and ARFID will give you the knowledge and tools needed to support your child's nutritional requirements and overall health.

Join us for this enlightening and practical session, concluding with a Q&A with Psychologist Jennifer Shore.
