Eat, Play, Love

Feeding children isn’t always easy. Whether you’re dealing with a picky eater or a busy schedule, getting a nutritious meal on the table—one that your kids will actually eat—can be a challenge. Don’t be discouraged! Our team of registered dietitians created the Eat, Play, Love approach to describe the fundamentals behind raising healthy eaters.

While each child is different, there are some standard ways to help kids develop healthy eating habits. We believe a positive and sensible approach where the parent acts as a role model will get the best results. Read our articles to learn how to:

  • Develop a feeding strategy that will end dinnertime struggles
  • Be a healthy role model
  • Incorporate play into the kitchen and your daily lives
  • Teach balance with a positive approach
