  • “Great balance of practical work and listening . An area I am really keen to develop, and this gave me key tools to do it.”
  • “Really enjoyed the Workshop and would love to take it further.”
  • “I loved the Workshop! Very interesting and relevant. Definitely will be taking back plenty of ideas to my nursery as well as the key phrases to use with the children at mealtimes. Wish we had longer to spend on the training, it was that interesting. “
  • “The phrases were very relevant within the age group of children in my preschool room, I will definitely be sharing them with my staff. It was a great course!”
  • “I enjoyed the whole Workshop. I think it was interesting, different, and well organised. The activity was helpful.”
  • “I definitely learned some new techniques that may help to encourage children to eat more or start eating their food, and will start using those techniques ASAP.”
  • “The Workshop was really good and I was quite impressed with the video. The practical activity helped me understand how to engage the children into this experience.”
  • “The Workshop was good and showed a simple way to get the children involved with new experiences. I think the fact that it is an easy activity will encourage staff to do it with the children. “

  • “I have learned not to use certain words and use other more helpful words to help children eat food.”
  • “I really liked the whole training session.”
