“This course eliminated the anxiety around feeding our babies.”

This course eliminated the anxiety around feeding our babies. Especially as a new mom, I stressed out about whether or not he was getting the right nutrition. After taking this course, I didn't even question it. I knew he was getting everything he needed and that was a huge relief.

“This course covers so much from an OT perspective in terms of early oral motor development, being aware of the environment, and reducing the chances of picky eating!”

As an OT, I talk about these things in my practice but it's often not taken seriously regarding how much food impacts coping skills and mental health, as well as physical health. This course covers so much from an OT perspective in terms of early oral motor development, being aware of the environment, and reducing the chances of picky eating! And then helps parents truly build gut integrity. If every family could have this information and start food this way...it's the best gift we could give our child for lifelong health (and generations to come). TRULY FOUNDATIONAL for wellness and for creating lifelong adventurous eaters.
