CONFIDENTLY FEED YOUR TODDLER, MANAGE PICKY EATING AND RAISE A HEALTHY, ADVENTUROUS EATER
[without the agitating mealtime battles, stress over what they’re eating, or confusion around all those “what-do-I-do-when?” scenarios]
Are you the parent of a toddler (or soon-to-be toddler) who’s looking to achieve stress-free, healthy meal times while squashing picky eating in its tracks?
Then you already know you need a step-by-step plan.
You already know that one-off-tips from a blog or Instagram page just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
And I know there’s no need to ramble on about how working with an expert and mom who’s “been there, done that” will give you the know-how to turn your toddler into an adventurous eater.
In fact, you probably have already been telling those close to you that you just want answers and you don’t want to wait to see “if this is just a phase…”
Prevent and Reverse picky eating and achieve peace of mind
Seeing the whole picture and tackling picky eating at the source, from many angles, means you can actually prevent or reverse picky eating instead of hoping for one good meal here and there or waiting for things to get bad. You can finally rest assured your child is in good health, knows their body and is getting all they need to grow well!
Consistently allow for stress-free meals
You can actually look forward to coming to the table with your child. Mealtimes will be happy times where you can bond together and focus on enjoying each other’s company instead of focusing on what is/isn’t being eaten!). Those happy family moments don’t just exist on TV!
Give you the confidence of being your own feeding expert
No more second guessing yourself. With expert strategies and a plan, you will know what and how to best feed your toddler without any of the mom guilt, constant questioning and feelings of regret.
Lead to having an adventurous eater for life
Sitting down to one meal for the whole family (that you actually enjoy too!) will be a thing. Going to cool, new restaurants with your toddler and not having to rely on a kids’ menu will also be a thing! You can finally rest assured that your toddler will have the foundation to grow into a competent eater, even into adulthood!
raise a happy
happy, healthy eater?
great! now how on earth do I start?
Maybe you’ve already been actively trying to set up or change the way your toddler eats and have found yourself:
Perhaps you even know some of the “shoulds and shouldn’ts” around feeding, implemented tips from experts on Instagram and despite your best efforts, still aren’t sure of where you’re going wrong.
And you swear…if you hear them begging for a snack after a meal one more time…arghhh!!
Here’s why most great parents find this process to be so stressful and out of their hands…
Without one person (an actual expert with experience) to lay out the WHOLE picture of what and how to feed your toddler, it’s all just a bunch of random things you’re trying. There’s nothing that helps you connect the dots. Nothing that sticks. And God knows…one thing you’re doing in one place may be completely counteracting what you’re doing in another…and you wouldn’t even know it!
Here’s how this can make things harder…
The more stressed you are as a parent around meals, the more your toddler feels it and puts up a fight around food. The less confidence you feel around how you feed, the less confident your toddler will feel around how they eat.
Finding the missing piece to what you’ve already tried is usually quite clear once you have the whole picture. Then stress levels can go down, confidence can go up and change can start to happen little by little (even when you think it’s too late)!

MOST PARENTS HAVE THAT PREVENTS THE SUCCESSFUL FEEDING OF TODDLERS
Toddlers already know how to eat
(and we should intuitively know how to feed them).
You maybe think that just because you’ve passed the starting solids phase, your toddler should now know how to eat! They can chew, they’ve tasted a variety of food, and there’s not much more for them to learn!
Taking it one step further, because you’ve gotten through the “I’ll teach you how to eat” part of life, you assume you should just know how to continue feeding them! It should be intuitive…right?
The thing is, eating is a developmental process much like walking and talking. Just because they can take a few steps and technically “walk”…they’ve got years ahead of practice and falling before they can walk and run like an adult! It’s only normal!
The same goes for eating. Just because they’ve learned to take bites, chew and swallow, there’s still years of foundational learning to eat and like food ahead of them that they need help with as they grow and change!
And we’ve never been taught how to do this. There is no manual provided in the hospital or superhuman out there that was just born with this knowledge.
So remember that your toddler still has LOTS to learn about how to eat happily and healthily, our job teaching them is far from done, and it’s normal and ok to need help knowing how to do this!
Picky eating and unwanted mealtime behaviour will just get better on its own.
You’ve heard how normal #pickyeaters are in the toddler world. It’s just a thing right? After all, even your doctor didn’t seem too concerned, citing “it’s just a phase.”.
Maybe you even secretly hope that if you deliberately let time pass, you can just ride this whole thing out.
While picky eating can likely be a phase, it’s not a phase for about 1/3 of kids. Further to that, how you respond to this “phase” of toddlerhood can determine whether your child gets worse, stays the same, or gets out of it. Most toddler’s don’t just grow up and “get it”. It doesn’t get easier to wait until they’re older to deal with it (it only gets harder). Much like teaching them their ABC’s now so they can read advanced books later…we’ve got to put the foundational work in!
So rather than waiting until things get worse or hoping for things to get better (which is not a strategy), realizing that there is a lot we can do NOW to change the course of picky eating by taking action is key!
Feeding them healthily takes too much time and effort
(both of which I don’t have)
You’ve seen the Pinterest and Instagram photos of the cute lunches and the smiley faced plates. Yah….no thanks. You’ve got enough on your plate as it is to be able to pull off the kind of creativity required to entice your toddler to eat better.
But knowing that your attitude around feeding is the biggest determinant of how well your toddler eats means you can choose to make fun plates and super varied meals…or not! There’s bigger fish to fry…trust me. And keep in mind…it’s your toddler that’s judging the product here….being Pinterest worthy isn’t exactly the requirement for succeeding with them.
So while it will take time and effort from you…it doesn’t have to be unrealistic and difficult. From one mama to another…I can attest to this!
Alright...I'm going to let you
in on a little secret
As long as you take action, the path is paved for you to be YOUR OWN EXPERT in what and how to feed them!
Successful parents and feeding experts are all about playing the long game and enjoying small wins as they go, so whatever daily actions YOU take to manage toddler eating behaviours is how you can get there too.
The key ingredient to all of this is a foundational step-by-step plan that lays out all the pieces of the puzzle together.
And I’d LOVE to show you how.

The course is called “Feeding toddlers” (technically ages 1-3), however, the content and strategies work for kids up to age 7 or 8! So much so that I included some information where relevant to use for older kids as well! I use these strategies still with my boys and they work like a charm 😉
For setting a solid foundation and preventing picky eating, I recommend parents take the course right around 10-12 months of age, and implement the strategies right away or as soon as the first signs of pickiness start to appear. You’ll know how to handle every situation like a pro, right from the start. And remember, course access never expires so if you get it to prepare yourself, you can always go back and revisit it anytime you need a refresher!
You have lifetime access to the entire course! If you ever need to brush up on material or would like to retake it at any point in the future, you can! I am always updating the course with new material, lessons, resources and extra support in the client support group. You get ALL these updates for life and can use the information for any new siblings to come!
I’m a registered pediatric dietitian and feeding expert who has been practicing in the field for over 11 years. I graduated from a 4 year science degree at Dalhousie University with a major in Neuroscience, and then went on to complete 5 years of Applied Nutrition and Dietetics including a one year internship from Mount Saint Vincent University.
I’m also a mom of two boys and have gone through the process of feeding fussy toddlers myself. I have felt the stress and worry over how to handle this phase, and was able to overcome it and raise two very adventurous and pleasant eaters who LOVE mealtimes and a great variety of food. Combined with the hundreds of clients I’ve worked with through private practice, I know the ins and outs, tips & tricks, plus ALL the latest evidence based research and professional feeding strategies to allow me to teach this information with you with full confidence!
This entire course is offered for the price of less than ONE private session with a dietitian. The amount of info and the level of care put into this course equates $1800 worth of counselling and resources. Because my goal is to get this into the hands of as many parents who need my help as possible, I’m making this extremely affordable for everyone.
Not only the monetary value, but the value of sitting down to stress free meals with your toddler, knowing you will enjoy them wherever you go, can eat all the same foods, and that you are confidently feeding and raising them in a healthy way is invaluable.
As one mom who recently took the course put it…”Can I say…this is the best money I have ever spent?! This toddler feeding class is worth its weight in gold! Thank you so much – I have already seen improvement in just ONE day!”
Because I’m a mom too and want you to walk away feeling satisfied with the content in this course, I offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the content of this course. I am able to see that you watched the videos and if you can show me that you put in the work to use the resources and implement the tips, I will gladly grant you a full refund. All you need to do is let me know within 60 days of purchasing and show me why you felt the content was not complete.
This course isn’t for someone who isn’t ready at this time to put in 15-30 minutes a week to watching a couple lessons, challenge themselves to try new things, or who isn’t coming with an open mindset. The majority of work with feeding picky toddlers (or preventing picky eating) actually comes from the parents believe it or not! It takes some persistence, a willingness to go through each lesson step by step and implement action as you go. That is….if you want to see some real and lasting change and find the joy in eating with your toddler!
Because this is an online course, you set the pace for how long you would like to spend on the material. There are 6 1/2 hours worth of material in the entire course, broken down into 10-20 minute lessons for easy learning whenever you want!
I recommend watching 1-2 lessons per week, and implementing the action steps at the end of each lesson intentionally. Then, jump into the clients only support group, share your experiences, ask your questions, and then move onto another couple lessons the week after! Over the course of 4-8 weeks, you can have completely transformative mealtimes and the most solid foundation set when it’s all done step by step.
