This is intended for parents wanting to ensure their child has a healthy weight.  Too many parents worry about tackling weight issues as they fear provoking an eating disorder.  Yet being overweight, quadruples the risk of their child developing one.

This session will focus on the 3 key elements:

1. What obesity is, why the traditional way to measure it is outdated and what to do instead.

2. Why we need to emphasise less what we eat and more the psychology of emotional eating.

3. The latest research for children to eat smart and be healthy:

  • Easy practical tips to encourage good nutrition

  • How to get your child moving more

  • How to encourage a positive emotional approach to food

  • How to prepare the same foods with less calories
