Parent & carer workshop - 'Why children won't eat: picky eaters vs problem feeders'

This is a workshop for parents and caregivers of children up to 5 years of age. Led by our Consultant Speech & Language Therapist, Rina Van der Walt, this workshop will offer an introductory view on why some children may struggle to eat, and how to help them eat better.  

By attending this workshop, you will learn:

  • The foundational skills needed for eating (some of which may be surprising!)
  •  Common feeding issues often seen in young children, including struggles that 'picky eaters' may have, and the challenges of the 'problem feeder'. 
  •  Practical strategies to help your child learn to have a healthy relationship with food.

This workshop is aimed at parents and carers of children up to the age of 5 years old. 

This workshop will be delivered by:

Rina Van der Walt, M.CommPath. MRCSLT. Consultant Speech & Language Therapist. 

The cost of the workshop is £25
