Navigating Your Child’s Feeding Difficulties with Jennifer McGurk
Jan 4th, 2021 by themessyintersection
In this episode of The Messy Intersection, my guest Jennifer McGurk shares her personal story of realizing that her oldest son was a very selective eater.
Having recovered from an eating disorder early in her life herself, Jennifer now works as a dietitian to help clients "feel fabulous about food" and wants the same for her own family.
Jennifer discusses not only the process of realizing that her son struggled with food but also the impact that navigating this challenge had on her experience as a mother.
Together, Jennifer and Diana discuss the signs to look for if you suspect that your child may also be experiencing feeding difficulties and how to get started seeking professional help.
Resources discussed in this episode:
