The Fight to Bite Course

In this course, you’ll learn advanced strategies for getting your picky eater to try new foods, making meal times less stressful.

Let me guess, you’ve tried all the picky eater tips and tricks to get your child to try something new like…

 

  • Offering a new food over and over again.

  • Forcing your child to sit at the table until they take a bite.

  • Setting firm boundaries and using a reward chart.

  • Waiting until they get super hungry, hoping they’ll take a bite.

  • Tricking them by hiding food.

 

But nothing is working.

And when you bring it up to your pediatrician, all he says is, “It’s normal! He’ll grow out of it!”

But deep down inside, you know what’s happening isn’t normal. Mealtimes shouldn’t have to feel this defeating. 

On the one hand, you’re so tired of trying strategy after strategy, wasting time and food, just to see no progress… but on the other hand, you want to do whatever’s possible to prevent your child’s picky eating from worsening.

 

If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. And there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Hi, I’m Veronica

I'm a Registered Dietitian specializing in helping parents overcome picky eating.

 

I've been a Dietitian for 10 years and have worked with people living with Type 1 Diabetes for 8 years. That's where my passion for helping families bring joy back to the table came from.

 

After just a few months of working with children and families in a hospital clinic, I remember thinking to myself one night after work that most of the conversations I had with parents that day all had a common theme - and no, it wasn't diabetes. 

 

It was picky eating.

And it wasn't just that day. Parents always asked me questions about how to get their kids to eat more vegetables or how to help kids eat new foods without a fight.

 

Then I had my own kids and realized that feeding kids are complicated - it's influenced by our past experiences, values, emotions, and parenting skills.

 

And if there's a problem with feeding, the solutions aren't intuitive to parents.

 

It gives me so much joy to bring parents and kids closer together and restore the trust around feeding.

The Fight to Bite Course is for you if…

  • You’ve tried to “just keep offering” a new food, but it hasn’t worked and is always met with resistance. 

  • Your child doesn’t eat many foods, and even the food they eat, they won’t eat consistently. It always feels like a guessing game.

  • You’re unsure how to approach picking eating without bribing or an incentive.

  • You can’t remember the last time your child tried new food.

  • Mealtimes are stressful, and you feel at a loss for what to do.

  • You don’t know what you’re doing wrong and feel overwhelmed and discouraged.
