WHAT WE OFFER

EAT TALK THRIVE

SUPPORT YOUR CHILD TO BUILD A HEALTHY, LIFELONG RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD

Eat Talk Thrive aims to transform, step by step, how families experience food and mealtimes, leading to more enjoyable meals and better family connection. In small groups, we explore the what, how and when of preparing food for children and eating well as a family.

We cover all aspects of what it means to eat well as a family through this structured 6-week programme: 

  • Where are you now, taking stock, self-reflection 

  • How and where you eat, rituals​

  • When you eat, rhythm, structure

  • What is a balanced diet​

  • Picky, fussy eating and other challenges 

  • Phases of childhood

The sessions are very informal with a mix of worksheets, quizzes, pair and group discussion. Each time parents are invited to choose one thing to work on at home, creating small incremental changes.

We also have food tastings to experience different ways we can explore food with our children. 

The course is currently run in Plymouth in partnership with The Lark Children's Centres.  We were excited to be awarded a lottery grant to offer the course in six locations across Torbay starting this year. Unfortunately, all programmes are currently paused due to Covid-19. 

An online course can be arranged for groups of 4+ parents, get in touch for more information.

[It was] brilliant. I’ve found the sessions really helpful and have got lots of practical ideas of positive changes I’d like to make on our family food journey

ONE-TO-ONE SESSIONS

Some parents prefer to work individually to address the specific situation in their family. One-to-one consultations can be arranged at a time to suit you.

We can follow the Eat Talk Thrive course or work on issues that you want to address. 

Sessions usually take place at clinics in Exeter or Totnes. Due to Covid-19, all sessions are currently carried out online.

WORKSHOPS

For parents, we offer single session themed workshops around weaning or picky eating for example. 


For children, we run Cook and Explore or Taste and Explore sessions to encourage positive engagement with food.
