A must if you work with kids! Gain the skills and confidence to use mindful eating with the pint-sized set in your practice! Written by mindful eating expert and bestselling author of Discover Mindful Eating, Megrette Fletcher, MEd, RD, CDE, it is designed to give RDs and CDEs the practical tools to use mindful eating for pediatric clients (and their parents) with a variety of challenges: picky eating, disordered and emotional eating, weight loss, and just to develop healthy and healthful eating habits. Features:

  • 75 client-ready handouts on Mindful Eating activities for kids and their caregivers! Designed for either the counseling session, group education classes, or client/parent self-directed learning
  • Activities for a variety of common kid-eating issues! Help kids slow down, try new foods, explore cooking and meal prep, become aware of food and feelings, assess their hunger levels and much more. Megrette's whimsical and creative approaches include graphics and other visuals designed just for kids, free videos using stuffed animals to work out feelings (with dialogue you can use with your clients), 1-minute pre-meal activities to calm younger kids, and much much more!
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to use these 75 mindful eating activities with your clients, including prompts to use in counseling sessions, how to assess client readiness for the activity, and gaining the confidence to use each of them successfully
  • Megrette's insight on the activities--including her personal experiences using them, how to adapt them for a variety of settings, and which clients each works best with
  • Specific ways to use activities with the preschool, school-aged, diabetes, eating disordered, weight loss, WIC and teen weight management populations
  • Plus, the CE portion gives you the opportunity to practice a few activities on yourself! In doing so, you'll learn firsthand how transformative this innovative approach is. This book can truly change your practice, and your clients' relationships with food.
"Great book! I enjoyed all the hands-on activities the book included. Since the book is geared towards children, the visuals really help drive the message home. I really enjoyed and learned so much from this book. I look forward to using everything I learned."
- Shervin Solimanijan, RD, Los Angeles, CA

"The best part of these activities are the interaction with the child. It's an opportunity for the child to take part in the education, rather than just the parent."
- Christina Holmes, RD, LD, Joplin, MO

“These activities introduced new concepts to help kids think beyond eating food to fill them up. I like using these tools as part of my discussion about awareness of eating, hunger, fullness, and mindfulness with kids. It is nice to have activities to help them think and participate!”
- Sara Kuykendall, MBA, RD, LD, Winchester, VA
