This workshop will help parents of disabled kids with tips on healthy eating

September 24, 2018

Children need proper nutrition for their physical and mental growth. However, children are very picky about food and have different eating habits. Parents go through a constant worry about ensuring a balanced meal for their children.

Some kids hate vegetables while there are some who hate lentils and soups. It can get very overwhelming for kids at meal times when they are forced by their concerned parents to eat healthy.

Proper nutrition comes from a healthy balanced diet taken every day. This is important to ensure the development of the child's bones, internal organs and brain.

Every parent wishes their child has a well-balanced meal and is open to newer food experiences to provide them with the right nourishment, and support their cognitive and physical development. However, for some children mealtimes and food are far from an enjoyable experience. With this workshop, we hope to give parents the necessary tools to make eating and food not just a fun experience, but also strengthen the parent-child emotional bond.- Chaula Badiani Founder Reach Therapy Center for Children
