It's time to end the food fights.
And I bet you're struggling with.....
Pleading with your kid just to take one bite of dinner.
Or maybe you're stuck bribing your child with dessert, just to taste a new food.
Or pureeing & 'hiding' vegetables in other foods, so your child will eat them.
You're likely a short-order-cook making multiple meals, so your kids don't starve.
And you worry that your child isn't getting enough food or nutrients to be healthy.
Meal times that are full of fights, tears and stress for the whole family.
I know what you really want is to:
Have a child that eats the amount of food he or she needs to grow well.
Stress less about how much and what your child eats.
Have a child that will be more likely to try new foods or eat their veggies – without you having to ‘work’ for it!
Have a child that grows up to have less chances of being overweight, having an eating disorder or unhealthy emotional relationship with food.
Finally get rid of fights over food and find more PEACE around the dinner table.
Hi I'm Jen, and I can help you do this!
I’m also a Registered Dietitian with a BSc and MSc in nutrition and have operated First Step Nutrition for over 10 years. I’ve authored a book, appeared on local & national media and helped hundreds of clients with feeding their families.
And this is why I created the "End Picky Eating" program. To help moms like you achieve these results too!
My ultimate goal is to help make mealtimes a positive place for everyone, and set your child up to have a life-long positive relationship with food.
inside of "End Picky Eating"
Banish the fear that you’re failing at your job to make sure your kid eats a balanced diet.
Decrease anxiety, end the battles & find peace for both you and your kids around the dinner table.
And finally feel confident in what and how you feed your kids, instead of second-guessing yourself.
Weekly recorded short content videos that you can watch anytime during the week. These videos will contain content & easy tasks & activities to help you implement & make changes.
Group training calls via zoom weekly, for personal support and coaching. These will help you work through any challenges. Everybody gets a 10 minute time slot per week, so you won’t be left behind!
Private group for support and accountability. If you’re struggling or have content questions, post them in this group and I will get back to you - the other mamas may have some advice too!
Special guest Karen (a psychologist) shares videos & supporting handouts about managing kids emotions and attachment. To make feeding and parenting easier!
Food record analysis. I will analyze a 3 day food record for your child, to see where they fall short. Or encourage you that they're getting all they need!
who had tried everything (from bribes to forcing & pressure) and struggled mostly with her son who has sensory and oral motor concerns. Through End Picky Eating, she has learned the hidden pressure tactics she had been using. Once making changes, her boys cry less at the dinner table and meals are easier for everyone.Watch Jessie's story
She was stuck begging, crying & bargaining. Implementing what I taught ended up being less work emotionally and physically than what she had been doing to try and get her kids to eat! Now Kirsten's kids have lots of new favourite foods, they can eat happily as a family at restaurants and her son wants to be a chef!Watch Kirsten's story
Who is happy to now have more structure for meal & snack time, quit being a short-order cook, worked towards normalizing sweets, and has seen her son try new foods out of his own free will :)Watch Bridgette's story
Lesley struggled as a short-order cook, making separate foods that her daughter still didn't eat! Worried about her weight, Lesley implemented strategies that lead her 15 month old to start eating more, gain weight, and made meals far less stressful for everyone!Watch Lesley's story
- You’d love to end the dinnertime battles. No more tears or yelling! What if the kids didn't complain about dinner and were active participants in helping you choose and make some meals?! It's totally possible!
- You want your kids to grow up and have a healthy relationship with food, compared to many adults, who are emotional eaters. Childhood sets the foundation for how your kids will deal with food for the rest of their life.
- You’re not willing to contribute to the group. We all have something to share, and learning from other moms strengthens this program.
- You’re not ready to invest in improving the health of your family.

The live calls are recorded and posted in the Facebook group if you miss them. You can catch up anytime.
What happens if you continue to fight with your kids to eat more than they want?
Any battles over food, are harmful for your whole family. Kids who feel bad about their body and food are at 3x increased risk for binge eating, weight gain and eating disorders.
