Is it a challenge to encourage your child, or children, to eat the food you’ve prepared? Are you making several different meals to appease multiple individuals in your family so they won’t go hungry? You must be wondering how you are ever going to get your family to eat the GAPS* food, right? You’re not alone, picky eating habits are a part of the Gut and Psychology Syndrome explained by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. You can read more about it in the yellow GAPS* book under the chapter titled It’s Feeding Time! Oh, No!

Do not fear, there are many stories of families who have transitioned their picky eaters onto the GAPS* Protocol. It is possible! And it is possible when you know how to motivate your picky eaters. It takes some preparation, but it can be achieved.

Living in Wellness Coaching Services offers a 1-Hour VALUE Package to help you prepare for transitioning your picky eater onto the GAPS* Protocol.  This package includes:
