Whether you work one-on-one with pediatric clients, in a community nutrition setting, or in school nutrition education, you probably come across your fair share of picky eaters. And that means you probably get a lot of questions from parents and caregivers about feeding said picky eaters.

This educational resource covers the topic of introducing new foods to picky eaters. The presentation is perfect for educating groups of people, like parents and caregivers of children, but it can also be used to educate individuals. It can be presented in person or online, such as in a webinar or as part of a virtual course.

When you purchase this presentation, you get two files for the price of one: a Canva template and a PowerPoint file, so you have the choice of using one or both of these software systems. This file is also compatible with Google Slides if you prefer to use that.
