Mastering Mealtimes Membership

The resources, knowledge, and tools that every parent of a picky eater needs.

Are you tired of mealtimes being a place of frustration and defeat?                            

Do you feel like you’ve tried every trick, hack, or strategy to get your child to eat more than chicken nuggets, pizza, bread, noodles and processed carbs?

Is your child the most stubborn and strong willed child ever, and you feel like nothing will help them try new foods?

Does the thought required to plan a meal that everyone in your house will actually eat enough to make you want to cry?

Do you feel unsure if your child has trouble with textures or might have sensory preferences?

Are you tired of having to piece together a plan to help your picky eater from tips you’ve found all over the internet? 

Your search is over.  The Mastering Mealtimes Membership, by Kim Slack, RD, is here for you!

This membership for parents of picky eaters, will give you the knowledge, action plans, tools, and support you need to bring peace and joy back to mealtimes with your family.

I thought the Mastering Mealtimes Membership would just tell me things I already knew.  I’ve bought stuff from people I followed on Instagram before and I always regretted it.  Plus, I didn’t want to spend more time prepping stuff that takes away family time.  I work all day and meal time already feels rushed and crazy.  In reality, Mastering Mealtimes fits very well into what we are already doing as a family. I don’t feel stressed to make drastic changes to my shopping or meal prep. It’s little tweaks that make life easier. 

The biggest win so far is seeing my daughter eat lettuce. I honestly thought it would never happen, but now, my child trusts me when I say, “You don’t have to eat it.” or “That’s a food that you’re just learning.” Before she could sense that I had some sort of motive and it was inhibiting her desire to try new things. The program has given me go-to sentences that roll off the tongue and it makes things easier for both of us.  I feel like I’m acquiring secret tools.

Food is important but it shouldn’t be a time consuming, stressful thing. I think the philosophy of this program is to leave some of the burden to the expert, and then just use that freed up brain space to be a goofball with your kid. And then somehow your kid is suddenly eating handfuls of LETTUCE (still blown away by this) and MIXED FOODS!

     I can’t wait to teach you how to help your picky eater EXPAND!

    I personally know how difficult it is to watch a child eat just a handful of foods, cry at the table, and struggle to find foods to eat outside the home.  I also know the pain of planning a meal that doesn’t require 10 different foods to make sure everyone in the family has something to eat.  

    It’s exhausting, frustrating, and defeating.

    That’s why I created the Mastering Mealtimes Membership program.  You’ll have the tools to work through the changes needed to improve the atmosphere, attitude, and execution of meals and snacks in your home.

    We’ve just gotten through the mindset shift lessons.  We didn’t realize how negative we had become!  We are feeling a positive shift in how we are approaching mealtimes and are looking forward to continuing to build on this.

    You’ll get access to short recorded lessons to walk you step by step through learning the skills to guide your child to eating a varied diet and ending meal time battles!  Each lesson ends with a clear plan of your next actionable steps.  

    YOU WILL LEARN:

    • Causes of picky eating and how they relate to your child
    • How to facilitate calm, positive, enjoyable meal times
    • Strategies to shift your mindset to support your child’s success
    • Meal planning to help your child accept new foods
    • Techniques to build comfort around any and all foods

    I was hesitant to sign up because I didn’t know if it would address my son’s sensory issues.  I was struggling with how to present food in new ways and get in exposures.  Now I’m way more confident when I feed my son.  Kim’s program gave me the language to use when he wouldn’t try a new food or would.  I love that I can access the information any time.  I print materials to use as cheat sheets in my kitchen.  Kim is so approachable and available for questions.  Overall, Mastering Mealtimes is a game changer.  I never thought my son would stop eating pureed vegetables and this program has changed his life.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is the Mastering Mealtimes Membership for?

    This is a program for busy parents of picky eaters, that range from just becoming picky to very picky, and anywhere in between. The program teaches strategies that you can use at home to guide your child through the process of experiencing new foods at their own pace. The program is not a replacement for one on one assessment and treatment with a medical team, including but not limited to, physician, registered dietitian, occupational therapist, and speech therapist. Some children with physical and medical complications still need this in person support. The program can be an excellent complement to work with these other disciplines (feeding therapy).

    My child has ARFID, autism, sensory processing disorder, swallowing difficulties, oral motor issues or another feeding concern, is this program a good fit?

    The Mastering Mealtimes Membership can be used for these children, but they may make progress at a slower rate and require modifications that the caregiver is responsible to determine.  The membership focuses on the opportunities caregivers have to set their child up for success in the home environment and offers therapeutic techniques that can be fit into day to day routines.

    I really want to help my picky eater, but I'm busy! I can't commit a lot of time to learning or attend lessons at set times.

    The lessons are typically 5-20 minutes long, and I encourage you to watch one at a time.  There are always clear, actionable next steps laid out for you that you can implement immediately, without any guesswork.  Plus, many action items are tweaks to things you are already doing, so zero extra time is needed.  If you’ve got 15-30 minutes per week for me, you can see progress.

    Do I have to complete all the lessons and activities in the membership to see the benefit?

    It is strongly recommended to complete all the foundation lessons of the Membership.  After that you can pick and choose lessons and activities that fit the foods and goals you are working on with your child.

    I have multiple picky eaters in my house? Can I use this course to help all of them?

    The course information applies to all children in a household.

    What age should my child be for me to apply the information learned?

    The program is designed for children eating table food from 1 year old to 8 years old. Some parents have found success beyond 8 years old and many suggested activities can be scaled up to be age appropriate.  Any food shared in the course will have to be considered by the parent to determine your child’s ability to chew based on their age and abilities. Transitioning babies to table food/weaning will not be covered in this course.

    I feel like I've tried EVERYTHING, why is this Membership different?

    The Mastering Mealtimes Membership takes the guesswork out of helping your picky eater.  You are taught exact methods to address concerns and provided with clear actionable steps to start. You also get what so many parents are missing on the long journey of helping a picky eater: support.  Support is built right into the membership with a community board for parents, Q&A, and materials that support success.  You also get exclusive access to upgrade to one on one coaching.

    What if my partner isn't on board? What if I send my kids to their grandparents for care and they aren't up for making changes?

    Allow me to assist you in “selling” your partner, family, or caregivers on how we can help kids grow into competent eaters.  I intentionally made a membership model so the investment could be a no-brainer and you could jump in and TRY IT.  Have your partner watch the “Causes of Picky Eating” lessons to introduce them to the reasons your picky eater might be struggling and how it’s not just “all in their head.”  No convincing necessary from you.  I’ll explain it all.  Meanwhile, you start the “Feeding Foundations” lessons to start to address areas for improvement.  This way, you get to show them a win.  It will become evident that it’s important not only for your child – but for the whole family!

    Will supplements be covered or recommended in the Mastering Mealtimes Membership?

    Specific nutrient recommendations and supplements are not covered in this course. The focus is on helping children eat the foods that are already being served at home and to increase overall variety. If you’d like to learn more about your child’s specific nutrient needs, check out the Nutrients to Watch for Picky Eaters course.

    What kind of food exploration activities are shared and how often are they released?

    Each month includes a food theme and activities that help your child move from potentially not even looking at a food, through touching, smelling, licking and maybe even tasting.  Activities are organized so that you can start where your child is and work at their own pace, using logical next steps.  Activities can include, but are not limited to: printable worksheets, experiments, math and reading activities, imaginary play, cooking and baking, crafts, sensory exploration, food chains, quizzes, videos, and mealtime interactions.

    My 4 year old wolfed down her fajita pasta declaring ‘I love the green peppers and the red peppers and ALL the peppers!’ Prior to this meal she’s never touched them – she was OK with peppers being cooked together with the meal but we’d have to pick them out before we served it and leave them on the side of her plate.
