What is a relaxed eater? Relaxed eaters trust themselves to eat enough and to eat a wide variety of foods to nourish their bodies. What’s missing is anxiety or conflict over these food choices. They can go with the flow when it comes to eating. While they have learned to follow routines in all areas of their lives, including eating, they also can handle disruption of that routine with little angst. They can eat in social situations or alone, and can navigate the food environment to enjoy the food that also happens to nourish their bodies. Parents have a limited window of ages 0 to 2 years to instill good eating behaviors in their toddlers, and then help those children practice, refine, and improve those behaviors throughout their childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood. This course provides practical tips for parents and caregivers on how to approach “relaxed eating” to promote a healthy relationship with food issues and improve health outcomes.


The goal of this course is to equip healthcare providers with skills and ideas to share with parents, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals to help raise a generation of relaxed eaters. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify three learning strategies that influence a child’s relationship with food.
  • List at least four practical tips for crafting a healthy mealtime environment.
  • Communicate behavioral interventions to promote relaxed eating at meals to parents.
