Session Outline:

  1. Opening the session.

  • Icebreaker Exercise – optional, see earlier section of “Facilitating WIC Discussion Groups.”

  • What foods does your child avoid?”

  • Do you fix any certain foods for your child that they eat especially well?”

  • What foods do you order for your children in a restaurant and why?”

  • Do you know any foods that children might choke on?”

  • How do you make meal time more comfortable for your child?”
