Struggle-Free Holidays: Keeping your Kids' Nutrition Intact
LectureNew Class

You work hard to instill your kids with healthy eating habits. Then the holidays roll in - along with the candies, cakes, pies, processed foods, and doting relatives – undoing all your hard work in a matter of meals! So, how can you survive the holiday season with your kids’ eating habits – and your sanity– intact? Dina Rose, Ph.D., will show you how in this eye-opening lecture. She’ll explain why being the “sugar police” can often backfire, and how to diplomatically manage grandparents and others who want to “spoil” your kids with food. She’ll also share tips for traveling and empowering kids to learn to manage their own sugar intake. You’ll leave class armed with an individualized action plan to help your entire family enjoy the holidays with less fighting, guilt and struggle – not to mention, junk food!
