Melanie Potock, MA, CCC-SLP is a mom who once had a picky eater.  She’s experienced first-hand the stress that parents feel when they are worried about their child’s nutritional health.  Fast forward to today, and you’ll find Melanie blending her knowledge of feeding therapy with practical parenting strategies that help the entire family eat healthier.  She’s an international speaker and author of three books, including co-authoring the award-winning Raising a Healthy Happy Eater.  Whether your raising a child who seems to be on the path to loving all kinds of healthy foods (and you want to keep it that way!) or you are seeking help for picky eater to enjoying more than chicken nuggets and fries, “Coach Mel” is here to guide you.

Parents of kids who are challenged by extreme picky eating, often limiting their diet to just a few foods, need one-on-one therapy with a specialist.  Be sure to ask your speech language pathologist or occupational therapist if they’ve taken Melanie’s courses in feeding therapy.  If not, please encourage them to visit the events page, where you’ll find courses for parents, too.  Don't miss the on-demand video course coming in January 2017.

I love the idea of them being accountable for their school lunches. I plan on making a board for them to choose the food to put in their lunches :)There were so many great takeaways from this course for our whole family and I’ve already referred other parents and our OT to the book and website.
