Are meal times a source of tension and struggle for your family? Do you have a child who refuses to eat a variety of foods or eats a limited range of foods? Perhaps they struggle to chew or swallow certain textures? Your child may be a picky eater or a problem feeder. The process of trying to get your child to eat well can be frustrating and tiring. Thankfully, there are trained professionals who have tools and tips that can provide some assistance and relief.
The Achieve Center is hosting an informational meeting for parents of children with eating and feeding problems. This informational meeting will include: a presentation by a certified Speech Language Pathologist and a Registered Dietician, a question-answer session, and informational handouts. The presentation will discuss what makes a picky eater/problem feeder, methods to use at home to encourage positivity around new foods, nutritional information, and any red flags that would warrant therapy.
Presenters: Shannon Schield, MS CCC-SLP & Vernell Theisen, Registered Dietician
Where: The Achieve Center, 520 N. 28th Avenue, Wausau, WI 54401
When: Monday, March 16th from 6:30-8:00 PM
