Do you, as a parent, deal with the daily struggles presented by a picky eater? You certainly aren’t alone losing the battle of trying to get a child to eat a healthier and wider variety of foods. Many parents give up fighting this battle. Life is better for everyone if the child is in control, no more battles! What if I told you there is a way for your child to be in control but you win the battle and they eat a wider variety of healthy foods…………

So……….. I have a solution that will provide a fun way for your picky eater to be in control of making healthy food choices – planning healthy meals and snacks everyday – you win but more importantly they win with the reward of being healthier and happier!

Kids like routines and being in control; developing a sense of security and self confidence that comes with the independence gained from building daily routines.

How many children do you know who function better in a more predictable environment, where they know what happens next? The predictability provided by daily routines is a safety net that enables kids to adapt better to changes whether planned or unexpected.

Some parents fear the child’s need for routines will infringe on their need to be more flexible. This does not have to be so. Give your child the skills/tools/encouragement to be independent and you can go about your day working around them! For all ages and abilities.

Back to the mealtime dilemma………………. give your child The Eating Game and they will quickly learn from the structure and routine to develop healthy eating habits – skills to last a lifetime!

Learn more about The Eating Game and how it works. You will surely see how your child, indeed your whole family, will benefit!   http://theeatinggame.ca/do-you-know-what-its-all-about/
