Positive Body Talk

Sunday, April 7th, 9am - 12pm
Manistone Wellness Centre, 507 Baker St unit 215, Nelson BC


Body image distortion & dysfunctional eating, both continue to greatly affect our growing children, their self-esteem & decision making, their overall health, and respect for the body. In this 3 hour workshop, we will explore this intricate relationship between developing kids and food & body, how to talk to them about this relationship, and how to recognize signs of struggle. We will discuss dietary habits, the affect of social media and mainstream marketing, self-esteem, and intuitive eating practices. We will explore the role of Mind-Body Nutrition, as well as cover topics such as dieting, toxic dietary beliefs, fear foods, guilt & shame, and language. The goal is to provide parents with practical tools to apply and support positive positive body image & food relationships in our young ones. Workshop will include informational handouts, discussion, in-class exercise, dietary focus, and suggestive homework.
Snacks & tea provided.
