2020 Family Resource Network Conference Series:
Conquering Picky Eating at Home
Many individuals with Autism or other developmental disabilities are picky eaters. Join Family Resource Network for this conference to:
- Understand why selective eating is so common in spectrum disorders
- Learn how to manage concerns about weight and poor nutritional status
- Discover the best foods to introduce to your child
- Learn strategies you can use at home every day to expand the diet of an extremely picky eater
- Learn how to manage expectations and stresses that caregivers experience
Our Speaker: Jennifer Friedman, MS, RD, is a registered dietitian who specializes in extreme picky eating. Jennifer received her Bachelor of Arts degree from McGill University and her Master of Science degree in nutrition from Columbia University Teachers College. Known for her playful and approachable style, Jennifer has become a leading resource for parents and professionals working with children who struggle at mealtimes. She shares her insight on her website and blog, JennyFriedmanNutrition.com, and on social media @autism.nutritionist.
