Mealtime Works - Your Kid's Table

The way to end picky eater battles and help your child eat better so they thrive! 

Give your child a lifelong healthy relationship with food.

Do you wish…

03Your child would eat more foods than they do? Instead of the same few day in and day out.

03

Mealtimes weren’t a struggle and your family could enjoy a meal together?

Instead of failed meals or no meal at all, and forget about going to restaurants.

03

Your child wouldn’t freak out or totally refuse new and different foods?

Instead of feeling discourage, frustrated, and burnt-out when a new food is an epic fail.

03

You felt good about their nutrition and health because of the foods they did eat?

Instead of being worried they aren’t getting the vitamins and nutrients they need.

Imagine what it would feel like if all those wishes came true…

You would be able to confidently feed your child every day, at every meal, knowing that you are giving them a positive relationship with food that will last throughout their whole life, all the while expanding their variety of foods. Imagine the relief, the peace during meals, and how empowered you would feel…

That may seem like a pipe dream, because you’ve tried everything… What the doctor suggested, what works for your friends, and what worked for your parents. The tips you saw on Pinterest, and you’ve seen little or no improvement. In fact, it may have gotten worse. Or, maybe you haven’t tried anything because you’re paralyzed in fear that if you change anything at all your child just won’t eat.

I know that deep down in your big parent heart you know there is a solution. You believe there MUST be a way to help your child. It seems *almost* impossible… But, it isn’t.

There IS a way to overcome picky eating and enjoy meals together.

And, it isn’t a mystery, but it is more than a quick tip or trick.

I feel so so happy with his progress as he eats chicken and lamb now. He has also started eating cauliflower, carrots, peas, and peppers! Mealtimes are not a battle now and in the past, I would just feel so upset that he was not thriving. Within the past couple of weeks, he has even begun eating pizza and potatoes with cheese, which is so wonderful, as it allows us to also have things we want…!

I'm a pediatric occupational therapist and a mom

As an OT, all of the mom’s told me the same thing: My kid won’t eat anything different! I’ve worked with 100’s of families around the world and locally around their kitchen tables. But, maybe more importantly is I’ve lived this as a mom, too. I know the place you are in well. I get the frustrations, the worry, the stress. And, while what I teach parents is rooted in theory and research, it’s really built on what works in real homes, including mine.

Mealtime Works is a Complete Plan

What I’m talking about is more than a tip or strategy, it’s a whole plan. Everything you need from A to Z. This plan is taught to you in a class, just like an online college course. It is called Mealtime Works because what you learn is a real solution to mealtimes that actually work!

Meal times were complete chaos and only seemed to make things worse…. Then, I was fortunate enough to take the Mealtime Works course with Alisha and it’s like it all clicked!… I’ve watched my son live on one food, gag and vomit when anything comes near him… There is help and there is support and there is hope!!

What Students are Saying

Don’t just take it from me, let other parents who’ve used this plan do the talking!

“I am so so excited about the progress I’ve seen in 5 days or less of using these strategies. Beyond my kids trying new foods with such ease and fun in such a short time, I am just so so happy to have my happy relationship back with my kids.  I have seen more progress (and happiness to go along with it!) in the past 2 weeks than I have in the past 2 years trying to figure this out on my own.”

Jeanette W.

“Hudson is eating!! We have increased his variety of foods considerably. He is eating meats, pasta and sometimes rice. He loves saucy foods and condiments. He loves eating and will try most things if he can pick it off a platter.

Emily W.

“We now can eat together.  The expectations for all are known.  I feel less pressure as the chef mom and our kids feel less pressure in that they sit down to eat all food groups.  They are trying more foods and even my husband and I are too.   Change is always possible, and I’m a mom of extreme picky eater Bryan who has been in and out of OT for three years.”

30 Day Money Back Guarantee

I know the Mealtime Works plan works, but I want you to feel confident, so I welcome you to take 30 days to learn the strategies and begin to implement them. If after those 30 days you aren’t seeing any results, then show me the strategies you’ve implemented and the homework you’ve completed.  I will gladly give you a full refund.

When I found Mealtime Works my four year olds diet consisted of dairy and bread… My son went from gagging and vomiting at the sight of food to playing with it. Close to a year later my son has added several new foods to his diet, gained weight, no longer gags and tries new foods regularly with great interest. This class has eliminated our battle over food and made meals a more pleasant experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to see results?

While every child is unique and it is impossible to predict how long it will take to see significant results, I will tell you that the majority of families begin to see positive changes and progress within the first few weeks.  The class is designed to be fully implemented in 4-6 weeks, but there is no rush, you can go at your own pace and comfort level because you have access to all of the course materials from the moment you join.  It is important to remember that progress is anything new your child does with foods or at a meal. Initial results may be sitting at a table together for meals without distractions or touching a food for the first time.  While I don’t guarantee a certain amount of foods your child will eat, I do promise that you will at least drastically reduce mealtime stress and have a large variety of tools to help your child explore and eat new foods that work.

What if I don't see results?

While I think it is highly unlikely that you won’t see any results if you’ve applied the strategies and followed my suggestions.  I will give a full refund in 30 days if you aren’t satisfied and can show me the work that you’ve done to put this plan into action in your home.  If you feel you need specific attention from me, join the full mealtime works class to have access to the discussion board and live Q&A’s. My goal has always been to create an effective thriving community of parents.

How long do I have access to the class materials and discussion board?

You will have access to all of the course materials through the class site for 1 year, but the transcripts, slides, and handouts are all downloadable and printable.  In the full class edition, you have access to the discussion board and live Q/A’s for 6 months.

What ages is this class geared towards?

This class is beneficial for children 1 year to 11 years old, however transitioning to table foods and baby food aren’t covered specifically.  When it applies, detailed strategies are shared for you kids 6 and under, as well as for children 7 years +.

Can professionals join Mealtime Works, is there a certificate?

Absolutely!  Professionals are most welcome and a course certificate is automatically generated upon completion of the class that includes the date and hours completed.  6 hours are given for the full class and 3.5 hours for the lite edition.  Please note that this class has not been specifically approved by any accrediting agency, however a course outline and references are included in the class materials for you to accompany with any certificate, if need be.

Hi, I’m Alisha. Your Teacher.

Alisha is the creator, owner, and author of the popular website and blog, Your Kid’s Table, where she writes about all things kids and food, as well as sensory processing.  She is also a pediatric occupational therapist with over a decade of experience working directly with families to improve how and what their children eat.  Alisha is a mom to three young boys that have given her the chance to put her strategies and feeding solutions into practice on a daily basis.

I have seen two Occupational Therapists over the last few years for my daughter and did not receive this much information, resources or support like I did with this course…  I would highly recommend this class to anyone.

I saw dramatic changes in my child after following the tips in this course.  Excellent, detail oriented course that covers all extreme picky eating challenges.  So glad I discovered it.

Sumera

I’m halfway through Mealtime Works and in just 3 weeks have seen an incredible amount of progress with my strong willed, yet malleable 2 yr old son. The relief, enjoyment, and new found optimism is so so appreciated!!!!!!

Yana

I have used these strategies not only in my own house, but also in the families I work with as a speech therapist.  Our son is now eating a wide variety of foods, as opposed to just 10-20, and mealtime is enjoyable family time. I’m so thankful for this class, we definitely wouldn’t be where we are now with Mealtime Works.
