Imagine after completion of ‘Create Healthy Eating Habits, Early you will be able to

Who Is This Course For​

Parents especially those expecting and starting their parenting journey, as well as parents of babies, toddlers and young children (and also caregivers).

Having raised 3 children and advised families over the years in practice, I know how difficult it can be when you know what is good for children and you provide it but your children just won't play ball and you end up desperate to get anything into them.
This course is a wonderful opportunity to reset the happy meals buttons for parents and children.
