DON'T MISS OUT! THE DOORS CLOSE IN...
SHE WILL PUT FOODS IN HER MOUTH SHE WOULDN'T PREVIOUSLY TOUCH
"I love Ashley's approach towards exposure. For meal times, I try to make sure I incorporate some of each category. Before Ashley's approach, it was easy to just give my daughter "love it foods," but I have since seen what Ashley's approach can do. My two year old daughter doesn't have to eat what I offer. She knows that, and it calms the eating experience so much! If she just eats her love it foods, then that's what she does. On her own though, she will put foods in her mouth she wouldn't previously touch. She may spit them out, but it's progress. I never would have realized how important this method is. Ashley's approach has saved me from a lot of heartache and meal time stress. Now, I always have some of each category on hand and understand how to best feed my daughter."
- Laura H., Mom of 2 year old girl
group coaching plan outline
WEEK #1: WHAT TO FEED
This week sets the stage for where your progress begins. Ashley will help you create your own unique and specific love it, like it, learning it list to move forward with. Based on the personalized foods list of what your kid loves, hates, and all the erratic and uncertain eating habits in between, Ashley will give you a tangible starting place. No matter the age or feeding stage of your child, week one will bring you less meal time stress and more feeding success starting immediately.
WEEK #2: WHAT TO FEED
Using your love it, like it, learning it list, Ashley will walk you through how to adjust for nutritional deficiencies and meal plan to optimize each feeding opportunity. After this week, you will no longer wonder what to serve your picky eater let alone your family as Ashley will walk you through the steps to meal plan in a way that feeds your whole family without any short-order cooking required.
WEEK #3: WHEN TO FEED
Now that you know a wide variety of options you have to feed your child, Ashley will walk through some key meal and snack time strategies to promote and satisfy age-appropriate appetite. With an understanding of children's nutritional needs and physiological abilities to regulate hunger and fullness, Ashley will help you structure your family's feeding times with confidence and clarity.
WEEK #4: WHERE TO FEED
The feeding environment can play a big part in how a child eats. That's why this week, we address not only where (as in the location) a kid eats, but also the overall feeding environment and how it can either help or harm how well your child responds to meal and snacks times. After this week, you will be able to adjust how you feed your child no matter where you or they are.
WEEK #5: If/whether they eat
You've learned how to do your part now (with what, when, and where to feed). Now it is time to learn to handle how your child chooses to handle their role in the Division of Responsibility. If/whether they eat is ultimately up to them, so this week will help parents discern if and when to say anything. With prompts what appropriate table talk and saying substitutions for many of the things we catch ourselves saying by mistake, this week will help parents handle the infamous situations when our kids don't eat.
WEEK #6: how much they eat
Parents are often worried about if their child got enough to eat at any given meal. While with good intent to their concern, it can cause each of us to derail our commitment to feeding with a Division of Responsibility. That's why this week we discuss how parents can be at ease about how much their child eats (or doesn't), how to handle it if it truly isn't enough to sustain growth, and how to handle all the situations in between without obsessing over our idea of "enough."
The coaching plan far exceeded my expectations
"I knew the six week group coaching plan was going to be a worthwhile investment when I sat in on Ashley's free Webinar for how to feed picky eaters. That webinar alone gave me so much information and inspiration, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go deeper and have the support of a group dynamic. The coaching plan far exceeded my expectations. Ashley is so kind, supportive, and non-judgmental; she normalized just about every single thing we brought up, and she encouraged us to make small, manageable changes that would lead to new habits in the future. And she was right! My son has responded so well to everything she has set out for us. While I now there is still a long road ahead, I now truly feel like I have a road map for where I'm going!"
