WHAT WE OFFER

 

EAT.TALK.THRIVE.
SUPPORT YOUR CHILD IN BUILDING A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD

 

Nourishing Families 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 as a family.

We cover all aspects of what it takes to feed a family through a structured 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 


The sessions are very informal and 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 sessions are usually occur weekly over 6 weeks  or  fortnightly over 3 months. We have an online group to ask questions, share successes or ask for help. 

Many parents have said they wanted to come but couldn't commit to regular sessions due to work or childcare. So we now offer an intensive version of the programme over two longer Saturday morning workshops. 

[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 parents programme or work on issues that you want to address. 

Sessions take place at clinics in Exeter or Totnes. Alternatively I can meet you in a play cafe if you need to bring your children and you're comfortable in a public place. 

WORKSHOPS

 

We run all kinds of workshops for:

parents
