We have had to adapt to those … [Read more...] about Adapt and Carry On

Early on in the development of Craving Change, we received feedback that a program addressing emotional eating wouldn't appeal to men. In fact, this has never been the case as men absolutely attend and participate in Craving Change programs.

The Craving Change children's book, 'Is this stomach, mouth or heart hunger?' is meeting a need in many pediatric clinics. We receive consistent feedback that the story is a great tool for starting a conversation with a child about their eating. Initially, eating behaviours can be discussed in the third-person referring to the book's character, Moe. The story also presents vocabulary that can be used by children, parents and health care providers when discussing eating behaviours. The appendix … [Read more...] about Eating Conversations with Kids
