WHAT WE OFFER
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
