Welcome to the Happy Healthy Eaters e-course! All the course material is found here, right at your finger tips. I encourage you to go through the lessons in the order presented as the material builds on the previous lessons. You will find a variety of teaching methods to suit different learning styles: written lessons, audio lessons, and video lessons. Please download your workbook here. Print it off and place it in a binder. This workbook was designed to help you reflect on your current feeding relationship with your children (or the children in your care) and implement changes that work for your family and your children.
To get the most out of the course, I recommend that you work on the course a little bit each day and complete no more than one or two lessons a day. Don’t try to pack a week’s worth of material into one day! This way the material has a chance to sink in and register in your mind.
My goal with this course is to show you that mealtimes with children truly can be a FUN time and that children really can eat healthy!
