Q&A: 8:00PM

Worry about nutrition and growth and the resulting power struggles are often top concerns for adoptive and foster parents.

Foster and adopted children often have additional challenges such as food insecurity, food hoarding and preoccupation, picky and selective eating, and sensory challenges.

Katja Rowell, M.D. , aka the Feeding Doctor, explores why a child may be struggling, how stress and conflict negatively impact eating and weight regulation, and what parents can do right away to address challenges.

Parents will learn:

  • Strategies to reduce conflict and anxiety around food, plus what to expect in the transition
  • How meal and snack routines help picky eating and food preoccupation
  • How to introduce and serve foods so that children to tune in to cues of hunger and fullness
  • What to put on the table other than “kid” food
  • How to avoid the most common counterproductive feeding “mistakes”
