Putting Steps Into Practice

Creating a Plan for Success

  • Create your weekly organization. Write out your meal planning times each week and include the new food trials you intend to do.
  • Try to limit shopping to twice a week with an organized list
  • Schedule time for your new food trials where you can devote attention to your child and the process
  • Make a running list of ideas to incorporate at the dinner table to expand conversation and create a positive environment.
  • Don't forget to offer yourself grace. Schedules change, emergencies happen, dinners fall apart - it's ok. Teach your children the ability to "plan B" it and adjust to inevitable challenges.
