Nov. 6 DUBs Talk — Mealtime Intervention: A New Direction

Wednesday, November 6, 2019
The Haring Center Auditorium, CD 150, 2:00-3:00 p.m.

Mealtime challenges are common for parents, caregivers, and staff working with young children. We will discuss the current status of intervention for mealtime challenges and highlight the gaps in current intervention methods and research. We will present ideas for intervention that can be embedded into natural settings such as home and school, where mealtimes are already taking place. We will highlight two projects: Lunch Bunch, a parent training program, and Food Explorers, an embedded school-wide mealtime curriculum.

Participants will develop ideas about how to embed mealtime intervention strategies in their existing routines or practice, and understand the importance of embedded intervention in natural mealtime settings.
