Lucy Upton, THE Children’s Dietitian
Workshop on Fussy Eating
12pm, Friday 11th June
Having a child with food allergies poses all sorts of challenges and for some families, it can mean a bit of a struggle at meal times. In this workshop, Specialist Paediatric Dietitian and Nutritionist, Lucy Upton will discuss how to help your food allergic child have a positive relationship with food. She’ll tackle the issue of “fussy eating”, talk us through strategies to encourage children to enjoy food and have advice on what to do if you think your child may have more serious issues around food and problem eating. Of course, you’ll have the chance to submit your questions too and Lucy will answer as many of them as possible during the hour-long, live event.
Currently, Lucy is based in a busy children’s hospital where she enjoys supporting children with food allergies as well as helping those with feeding difficulties, growth concerns and requiring medical nutrition support. In addition to her NHS work, Lucy is a feeding therapist at a specialist feeding clinic, The Feeding Trust. You can find her on Instagram.
The event will be available to watch again via our website. As with our other experts, Lucy has given up her time for free to help us keep the costs low for this webinar. To sign up, click here
Each month we hold virtual meet-ups to share our experiences of having children with food allergies. It’s a fantastic opportunity to share challenges, solutions and offer each other support. Our meet-ups are held over Zoom and last about an hour. We encourage everyone to have their videos on, as it’s a chance, at a time of isolation, to get to know each other better. But don’t worry if you’re feeding a baby, it’s a very relaxed gathering!
The meetings are free and designed for the parents and carers of similarly-aged children, so please pick the best one for you.
