Manage Common Challenges

There are a number of things that can come in the way of healthy eating for families - whether it's time, cost, or their child's food preferences.

Children with mental health challenges can also face certain challenges to healthy eating. For example, having irregular eating schedules, or struggling with trying new foods. Some can develop extreme food sensitivities, or take medications that impact their appetite. 

Here are some suggestions for managing common challenges, and when to seek out professional help.
