The group coaching 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!"

- Karson M., mom of 4 year old boy

details on group coaching program

If you’re like most moms I work with, you are frustrated with feeding your child(ren). You make meal after meal, day after day, only to feel like eating is a stressful, unpleasant experience for everyone.

You put so much time, energy and money into the food you offer, but there’s not much of a pay off.

How do you change the tone at meal times? How can you make one meal for the whole family without it being a fight? How do you handle it if your child only has a handful of “love it” foods?

IT. CAN. BE. MADDENING.

What if it didn’t have to be that way?

What if I told you, you don’t have to worry about each and every bite your child eats (or doesn’t!) to raise a healthy eater? What if I told you your family’s meal times didn’t have to be stressful nor dictated by disagreements over if/whether and how much they eat?

Would you be relieved?

I have the answer for you.

My Love it, Like it, Learning it Group Coaching gives you the recipe to getting more variety into your kid.

With my Love it, Like it, Learning it meal time templates, I show you exactly how to get more variety into your child’s diet by optimizing both nutrition and exposure to new foods. You take my “How picky is my kid” Quiz, see where you are, and follow the path to growing the list of foods your kid is learning to like in less than six weeks. Where you are leaving things off today with your basic Love it, Like it, Learning it list takes things to the next level of transformation through my group coaching program.

If you’re ready to get out of a feeding rut, simplify meal planning for a picky eater, pick healthy meal options the whole family can enjoy, help your child try new foods, and add variety to nourish your growing child.... with less stress, less overwhelm and more clarity (not overwhelm!)…

The Love it, Like it, Learning it meal ideas sent weekly to my Group Coaching clients is your answer.

You can be just like our members who have had success...like …

Cecilia, who gain confidence as a parent. “I always felt my sons lack of interest in new foods as a fail on my part but after the 6 week course I have learned to be confident in myself and understand the roles of feeding responsibilities.”

Ruth, who found creative and realistic ideas about feeding. “Ashley’s course has brought some great positive changes to our attitudes about food and more peace at mealtimes.”

Emily, who transitioned from stressful, emotional mealtimes to ones that were peaceful and enjoyable time together as a family. “We know this food journey requires patience and continuous effort, but we feel better equipped through this program with Ashley.”

When you join the Love it, Like it, Learning it Group Coaching Program, you discover how to creatively come up with menu ideas that the whole family can enjoy and confidently offer such meals without wondering if there is something your kid can eat being offered. You can experience the initial transformation from tense to enjoyable time together at the table, while helping your child develop a healthy relationship with all foods.

After you join:

  • You’ll easily be able to find out exactly where your child is at in their picky eating, if it is problem feeding, and how to help them make ongoing progress in accepting new foods

  • You’ll learn the steps to turn your meal times into a pleasant, productive place

  • You’ll be able to easily assess how to handle hard situations that arise at the table if/when your child doesn’t eat or pushes back to what’s offered (examples + scripts included!)

  • Learn my system to grow your child’s list of preferred foods, and do it without worrying about if you’re doing “enough” to help get your kid out of this picky eating phase

And most importantly…you will become the confident nutritional gatekeeper you’re meant to be.

Find a community of parents in similar situations as you + get support like never before... a place to get ALL your questions answered without any judgement.

I hope you can imagine how great it’s going to be to learn the steps and go down the path to achieve less meal time stress and more feeding success.

I know you have been feeling frustrated... you work hard to come up with meal ideas, but you’re struggling to see the time, energy, and money put into food as even worth it when feeding picky eaters doesn’t bring the results you deserve. You are so over trying to figure it all out by yourself…

Then get ready to join Love it, Like it, Learning it Group Coaching.

No more feeling stuck, lost and confused. Our group is going to get you and your family to where you want to be.

I’ve helped hundreds of families achieve HUGE results and I’d love to help you too.

So now...It’s your time!

Read on for more details about what is included as part of this group program.


WHAT IS IT?

The Love it, Like it, Learning it Group Coaching is a six-week group coaching program. Each week, I send one email with a dietitian-approved dinner idea. This will include a protein/main entree, vegetable, starch, and fruit option to include in the meal using the Love it, Like it, Learning it framework. The six menus will feature different types of dinners that families often struggle with how to offer from seafood to one-pot meals like chili. Each meal requires 30 minutes or less to prepare (unless it is a crockpot meal, in which case the prep time takes less than 30 minutes).

Beyond providing you with unique menu ideas, each weekly email will also include:

  • The Love it, Like it, Learning it™ Framework so you can insert the menus into the framework for your unique family and child.

  • Suggest recipe links for any of the items in the menu that require one

  • Suggested product ideas for each item on the menu based on what I buy and why

  • Suggested modifications to make the menu idea best fit your family’s food preferences and food budget

  • Suggested approaches for how to offer this menu during the week, based on one overarching weekly action area such as:

    • Week 1: The Division of Responsibility in feeding

    • Week 2: How Love it, Like it, Learning it fits into the Division of Responsibility

    • Week 3: How and why to use family style meals

    • Week 4: What to do when your child pushes back to this approach

    • Week 5: How to respond when your child eats only “love it foods”

    • Week 6: How to help your child learn to like new (“learning it”) foods

  • Suggested scripts to help you know what to say and how to articulate healthy boundaries in the feeding relationship (without it creating a fight or power struggle)

  • Suggested community with ways you can connect with both myself and other parents who are a parent of this member-only community. This will include the link to our weekly live 45-minute group coaching calls as well, so that you can easily come, connect, and get your questions answered each week. This will also be where members can access member-only Facebook group.

When you sign up you also get these bonuses:

 How Picky is My Kid Quiz: Wondering what will work with your kid? Ashley takes an expert approach to identifying what trouble spots your child faces so that you can take the most effective steps to move forward with raising a healthy, confident, competent eater!
✮ Meal Planner PRO: Save stress and energy coming up with new meal ideas every week with this planner. Plan out Love it, Like it, Learning it meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to promote variety AND satiety, while also using the weekly menu ideas and options that Ashley provides.
✮ What to Say When: Weekly prompts to use with your kids when the most common mealtime struggles come up.
 Learn to Like it Checklist: A parent’s guide to helping your child learn to like new foods...the right way! This shows you how to stop pressuring your kids to eat and instead works your family through the six steps needed to take your kids from refusing to requesting new foods.


who is this for?

The Love it, Like it, Learning it Group Coaching is for parents who want expert advice on how to best feed their families.

Parents of this group are those who have found themselves:

  • In a feeding rut and repeatedly offering the same foods

  • Unsure of how to expand their child or family’s diet to include more variety

  • Stressed about what to offer at meal times and tired of their child(ren) turning down what is given for the family meal

  • Needing simple strategies and minimal effort ideas for meal planning

  • Searching for a framework that accommodates every member’s food preferences without catering or short-order cooking

  • Craving some control again in the kitchen with what, when, and where food is offered

  • Seeking clarity on how to handle common feeding struggles

  • Wanting to take a more proactive approach before feeding problems present

This group is for parents who want to be encouraged through practical advice and empowered to take action through evidenced-based practice. This group is also for parents who are ready to see the feeding dynamics in their family change and willing to do their part in that process

This group is not for parents who want to join a meal planning community full of involved recipes or adventurous meal ideas. This group values variety in the food offered, but does not offer an expansive daily list of meal ideas and focuses exclusively on dinners (at this time). This group is not for parents who are not able to both receive and extend empathy as it relates to a family’s feeding struggles. All parents in this group are welcomed with empathy, understood by both fellow parents and a pediatric dietitian alike, and accepted regardless of what feeding ages or stages they are seeking assistance with.


what kind of transformation can I expect?

At the end of these six weeks, parents can expect to:

  • Have exposed their child to six new nutritious, balanced meal ideas that provide a springboard to offering other new, nourishing foods from.

  • Have gained ongoing practice in deciding what foods to offer, how to expand on their child’s known preferred foods, and overall increasing the nutritional variety in their family’s diet

  • Have learned what strategies and systems are most effective for family-friendly meal planning, so that they are more confident in how to make one meal for their family and comfortable in the fact that everyone enjoys at least some component of it

  • Be empowered in their role in the feeding relationship, while having a newfound peace of mind in how to respect their children’s role as well

  • Feel less stress with what to feed and more success with how to feed

Children (whose parents have gone through this program) will:

  • See how their unique food preferences have been acknowledged in a healthy, age-appropriate way

  • Come to and engage at the table with an age-appropriate understanding of expectations around eating and how food is offered

  • Approach a wider variety of food being offered as a matter of fact part of meal times

  • Gradually add new foods to their “love it” or “like it” lists, with greater tolerance and overall acceptance of those foods that they are still “learning to like”

  • Create healthier habits around eating that develop mature feeding skills for life

Families as a whole will experience:

  • A refreshed, more positive approach to meal times

  • Sharing food around the table foster togetherness

  • Ongoing growth in the feeding relationship for parents and children

  • A new outlook on feeding and eating as a family


how do i achieve this?

By working through the action items in each week’s email, parents will lay the foundation for transformation in their family week after week. By showing up to our weekly live chats (or watching the recordings) and interacting in our member-only Facebook group, parents will seek the support and accountability needed to to build off of this foundation and be most effective in transforming meal times.

While group calls or engagement on Facebook are not necessary, utilizing the support and accountability offerings will help ensure you get as much as possible out of the group coaching package.

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 Bryn

Program Mock Up.png
 

Join Ashley and other parents who share in your struggles and are ready to see your child's successes. With live weekly calls, the private Facebook group, and exclusive client-only templates, Ashley can help you turn around your family's approach to feeding. 

group coaching has a limited number of seats in order for each family to get the support they need and deserve.


Frequently Asked Questions

+ Are the meals allergen-friendly?

Yes, each menu can be modified for necessary food allergies. Ashley is happy to assist with this via one-on-one calls, as needed.

+ Are the meal ideas each week vegetarian?

No, these meals include animal-based proteins. The framework and course could easily be done with meatless substitutes, which Ashley is happy to help advise parents through via one-on-one calls.

+ If my kid is under one, is this still a good fit for my family?

This Group Coaching can give any parent and family the tools they need to be successful in planning, offering, and managing family meals. Parents of multiple children may benefit from being proactive instead of reactive when applying this approach for their family as a whole, including with younger children who parents might wish to "do differently with" when it comes to feeding. Parents with a child younger than two years of age may find that some of the struggles and scenarios shared by fellow group members do not yet ring familiar to them. This information may still be useful to adding to a parent's feeding and nutrition toolbox however, particularly if a parent already sees signs of apprehensive eating (i.e. pickiness) presenting before age two.

+ When and where does this group meet?

There will be six, 45-minute virtual calls held via zoom once weekly. Group meetings will be on Wednesdays at 1 pm CST, beginning May 22nd. All sessions will be recorded and available for replay for anyone who is unavailable to tune in live.

+ What are the dates of the live group calls?

5/22, 5/29, 6/5, 6/12, 6/19, and 6/26.

+ What is the structure of the weekly coaching calls?

Opening and overview of weekly coaching topic from Ashley: 10 minutes. Review of questions asked in Facebook group (or submitted via email): 20 minutes. General Discussion/Q&A: 15 minutes.

+ What kind of direct access to Ashley do we get?

In the Facebook group, Ashley will be able to respond directly to each individual’s questions and posts on the public forum. Otherwise, there will be time on each week's call for you to ask questions. If you feel you need additional one-on-one consulting, Ashley may also be available for private one-on-one counseling sessions that may be booked directly.

+ What if we don’t have Facebook?

Facebook is not required to participate in this coaching plan. However, having access to the private Facebook community will allow you to have a greater level of engagement, accountability, support, and opportunity to share your struggles and successes with other parents.

+ How long do we get access to the private Facebook group?

With a paid membership to the Group Coaching, you receive lifetime access to the Facebook group. This membership continues after the six-week coaching plan ends.

This framework was the piece that we didn't know we were missing

“Our problem was that on the days he ate very little of what I prepared, I was constantly worried that he wasn't getting enough to eat (especially because he was already very low on the growth curves). This framework was the piece that we didn't know we were missing, which allows us to follow the Division of Responsibility without having to stress at all about whether they're eating enough, because there's always something we know they will eat if they're hungry. I truly can't say enough good things about the "love it, like it, learning it" concept!””
