It’s fantastic to see so many proactive Moms and Dads who want to stop picky eating before kids get really stuck in their ways. Trust me, it’s much easier to establish good habits in the first place, rather than needing to break bad habits later on.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
Kristen Yarker, MSc, RD recently announced the launch of a new service for the parents of children 9 months to 2 years old who are seeking to provide their children with nutritious foods and furthermore, prevent picky eaters from developing by encouraging healthy eating habits from the get-go.
“Prevent Picky Eating (9 months to 2 years): How to Transition From Baby Food to Big Kid Food (While Making Sure Your Child Is Getting the Nutrition They Need)” is a new online seminar based on Yarker’s popular workshop, which she has been providing to parents in British Columbia since 2008. Yarker launched the new online version of the seminar today, in the hopes of preventing another generation of picky eaters from developing.
Yarker shared, “Two of the most common topics that moms and dads ask me about are how to transition their children from breastfeeding or formula to solid foods, and how to prevent picky eating. I created this online seminar because I wanted more families to experience the success that I’ve helped local families achieve.”
In her 6 years of working with parents, Yarker has found that many parents are not sure how often they are supposed to feed their children in order to meet their nutritional needs, whether the child is still breastfeeding or using formula, or has evolved into eating solid foods. Mothers of toddlers who are returning to work often contact Yarker seeking advice on how to balance breastfeeding and solid foods during the hours that they’ll be away at the office.
When Yarker first launched her online services for the parents of fussy 2 to 5 year olds, she ended up receiving many calls from parents with children ages 12 months to 2 years old who were already seeing their child exhibit picky eating behavior and wanted help. Yarker adds, “It’s fantastic to see so many proactive Moms and Dads who want to stop picky eating before kids get really stuck in their ways. Trust me, it’s much easier to establish good habits in the first place, rather than needing to break bad habits later on.”
Yarker’s “Prevent Picky Eating (9 months to 2 years)” e-seminar is now available on her website at http://www.products.kristenyarker.com/9mo-2yr-prevent-picky-eating.
