Healthy Eating Workshop

 

We will be running a Fussy Eating training workshop on Wednesday 11th October 2017 at the Wickham Centre from 10am – 12pm.

 

The session will be run by dietician, Annemarie Aburrow and will be a great exploration of fussy eating in children with a focus on dealing with a child who is a fussy eater and a further focus on healthy eating/providing healthy snacks.

 

We would love to see as many of you as possible for this great workshop which will also be open to the families we support. We will be sending out invites to the families directly but if you think the family you support could benefit, then please do remind them of the date and time of the workshop. Please note however that we are unable to provide a creche so parents will need to arrange their own childcare.

 

We intend to follow this session up with a family group session (where children would be very welcome) focused around this topic later in the month and will advise you of the time and date as soon as it has been finalised. 

 

Please can you let us know as soon as possible if you would like to attend the workshop on 11th October 2017 so that we can book your place.

These CAMEO sessions will be very informal and will operate on a ‘drop in’ basis so there is no need to book.
