Healthy EatersLed by Jessica Braider, CEO of The Scramble

 This program is brought to you by the Edlavitch DCJCC Parenting Center and JFamily Ambassadors and funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and The United Jewish Endowment Fund.

Stuck at home? Feeling overwhelmed by feeding your family?  Are you sick of your kids turning their noses up at the dinner you made? Are you limited to four or five meals that you know your kids will eat? In this workshop we will discuss the reasons behind kids and their limited tastes and we’ll explore ways to make meals (and mealtime) more appealing and less frustrating for your children and yourself.  If you've got picky eaters, are worried about the nutrition your kids are getting, or just want to connect with other parents who are trying to figure out how to feed their families in the midst of the insanity, this is a community event you won't want to miss!

The workshop will help participants:

  • Understand the reasons behind picky eating and limited palates
  • Feel confident managing and diffusing mealtime struggles
  • Try new recipes and approaches that will make food more inviting for your kids
