All children can experience common eating issues like being a picky, slow, or distracted eater, having “eyes bigger than their stomachs” or food allergies that can mimic symptoms of clinical disorders. Children with a trauma history can have additional more‐complex food issues, such as: hoarding, eating disorders, and lack of eating skills or table manners. Foster‐ adoptive‐kinship caregivers need to have respectful, trauma‐informed responses to both common and trauma‐related eating and food issues. This workshop oﬀers simple, practical, fun things you can do to encourage healthy eating and to prevent or redirect common parenting issues related to eating and food. Bring your examples and creative ideas to share.
