Fussy Eater's Mealtime Management Program (Initial Consultation)
GAPS Fussy Eating
‘It’s feeding time! Oh, no!’
Dealing with a picking eater can be very stressful, affecting everyone in the family. Food refusal can occur for several reasons, some of which may not be fully understood. I can help you discover peace and fulfilment for you and your child through a comprehensive, caring consultation.
During this in-depth course, you and your child will develop a new relationship with food, and be rewarded with a fun and healthy way to relate to each other. I offers empathy, encouragement, and resources to guide you through this journey. I will help you set realistic goals for you and your child so you can experience success and growth together.
My objective is to empower families of children with fussy eating problems to build confidence in their ability to change their child’s relationship with food by providing support and guidance to successfully implement the GAPS Fussy Eating Mealtime Management Program. This course is based on GAPS Fussy Eating/MTM (meal time management) protocols that implement strict Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) strategies (explained in the GAPS book under the chapter marked ‘it’s feeding time! Oh, no!’)
