Making mealtimes nourishing and meaningful

FD 3 16

Dr. Emmi Pikler said, "Food should always be a pleasure." As Early Childhood educators we have a significant responsibility to promote nourishing eating routines and foods which influence the children's lifelong attitudes towards food, their long term health and wellbeing. This workshop encourages you to reflect on your approach to mealtimes and to value them as a learning opportunity within your cuuriculum to support the development of chidlren's wellbeing, social and life skills. 

We explore:

  • how to promote meaningful mealtimes though 'nourishing' environments and rolling 'family group' mealtimes
  • techniques to ensure you meet each child's dietary needs
  • food safety knowledge and current trends to norishing children in early childhood and beyond.
