Unpick Your Picky Eater
A powerful 6 week online training that will transform your family's mealtime
We get started January 13th 2020
Suitable for children of all ages (contact me for children 9 and over to discuss options.)
The best part, you won't be doing it alone! Each week, you’ll have an opportunity to reserve 10 minutes on a Zoom call with me to receive additional coaching and personal support. We'll work together with other parents having the same struggles. You are invited to be part of a private Facebook community to share and have the support of other parents going through the same struggles.
Your Trainer: Katharine Jeffcoat, RDN, LD
Hello! I'm a Registered Dietitian with over 22 years of experience in the field of pediatric nutrition. I worked 8 years at Emanuel Children’s hospital in Portland Oregon as a clinical and outpatient pediatric dietitian, part of the feeding clinic team and eating disorder day hospital. I spent 9 years in the pediatric allergy and prevention industry with Nutricia and Nestle. With a goal of returning to my passion of working with families and pediatric nutrition, I opened my private practice Portland Pediatric & Family Nutrition in the fall of 2015 and have an office in Portland, Oregon, Vancouver, Washington and work virtually across the country. The majority of my work is in helping families raise mindful eaters and preventing picky eating. I'm a mom of two girls, who are 6 and 11 and I have experienced my own food challenges with feeding my children. I know first hand that the philosophies I share in this training work to help children accept new foods and turn picky eating around.
I work with so many families that struggle with picky eaters, so I decided to put all the tools and strategies I use in one spot to make it easier for families to access in the comfort of their own home on their own time schedule.
What People Are Saying:
"Katharine, I wanted to share with you that our picky eater LOVES the family style dinner. She really loves putting food on her plate. I don't see her being more adventurous yet, but she certainly likes having the power to choose and serve herself. Thank you for that tip!! " ~ Marie-Eve , Mom of picky eater
"Another big win for the family style dinner here! My picky eater has eaten raw pepper and grapes - all without the pressure of "take one bite" - it is so much less stressful for me too. thank you! " Jen L. Mom of 7 year old
Here’s How it Works
Video trainings: Each week you’ll receive a pre-recorded video you can watch on your own time schedule. Each Video training will include a short lesson and homework (or action items) to accomplish throughout the week.
PDF's and handouts to enhance the lesson: If you’re more visual, you’ll have handouts to print and review, which will be included with the lessons.
Zoom Calls: You’ll receive four 15 minutes calls during the last four weeks of training to make sure you’re getting the most from your training and to work through any personal challenges you maybe having.
Private Group Support: I will link all families together in a private Facebook group to provide accountability and support from other families going through the same struggles. If questions come up that didn’t get answered on your weekly zoom call, I’ll answer them here.
