Toddlers at the Table
Feed Your Kids Without the Fight
Dinnertime doesn’t have to be a battle.
- Have you become a short-order cook making multiple meals for your family?
- Does your tiny tyrant demand six different foods (@#$%ing granola bars) then refuse to eat any of them?
- Does the constant whining for snacks make you feel like you’re losing your mind?
You're not alone, and it doesn't have to be that way.
Dinnertime CAN be pleasant. Your child WILL voluntarily eat vegetables someday. And most important: you don't have to worry as much as you think you do.
I know, you probably think I have some unicorn gourmande child who eats kale like candy, but this could never work for your obligate chicken-nuggetarian. But I don’t. My kids hate kale (most of the time - I talk about that specifically)!
But I’m not worried about it.
And that’s why I created this class. Chances are you’re doing 90% of it perfectly. It’s not like you’re feeding your kids Flamin’ Hot Cheetos for breakfast or putting soda in their sippy cup.
But sometimes we dig ourselves a hole trying to do the right thing from the wrong direction. You can’t dig yourself out the same way you got there. You need new tools.
That’s where I come in.
After 8 years as a health coach, I’ve listened to a lot of adults tell me about their relationships with food. After 6 years as a mom, I’ve tried to work backwards to figure out how to give my kids a better foundation for making healthy food choices.
I’m a strong believer in Baby Led Weaning, and this is the next step.
Stacy Spensley is a semi-crunchy mama of 3 kids who was frustrated by the lack of information she really wanted during her first pregnancy. She works with parents of young kids to normalize the parenting experience and offers support through coaching, classes, and her active community both online and in San Diego. She believes that when we know better, we do better, and aren't meant to do this alone.
In this class you'll learn:
- where normal (if frustrating) toddler behavior intersects with toddler nutrition needs
- when to let go and when to actually worry
- what the Division of Responsibility in Feeding is and how to apply it to real life
- simple strategies to get your child to eat more while you stress less
- 5 videos that walk you through the biggest challenges of feeding toddlers and how to handle them
- transcripts of all the videos
- a downloadable handout with content highlights
- a printable worksheet with prompts to help you plan your next steps
If you’re ready to enjoy mealtime again (or at least approach it without a sense of dread), you can. Watch the class, try a new approach, and know that you’re doing the best you can.
The class is only $75 (watch it as many times as you want! Show it to your partner and your mom!).
If you have some very specific questions that I don’t address in the class, you can add an individual consultation with me.
