Imagine yourself actually enjoying a nice meal with your kids without all the stress, frustration, and battles.
You’ve spent naptime putting together a lovely meal for dinner… but in the back of your mind you just know your child either won’t touch it or will scream and throw a fit because they don’t like it. You’re feeling so overwhelmed, don’t know why you should bother anymore, and ready to give up.
Do you dread mealtimes? All the stress of staying on top of your child to eat, bribing them to just try one bite of green bean, or getting so frustrated with all the screaming and meltdowns you just want to give in and make them something else.
Or, you’re worried about giving your child dessert because they’ll want seconds, thirds, fourths and then be too full to eat any of their other healthy foods. What do you do? You don’t want to restrict them, but you’re scared they’ll become obsessed with ‘unhealthy’ food and want it all the time.
Make one meal and feel confident doing it! No more short-order chef mom catering to everyone’s individual preferences. No more worrying about your child not eating or trying new foods. No more bribing, fighting, and staying on top of your kids to eat.
Meltdowns over what you’re serving? No problem. You won’t feel the need to yell at your child or stop them screaming, that leaves you frustrated, angry, and drained. You’ll finally be confident and empowered knowing what to do and what to say to help the situation pass with minimal frustration to you.
Give dessert or “junk” foods with confidence knowing you’re providing your child the foundations of a healthy relationship with food. Instead of restricting and dreading when your child asks for seconds or thirds, you’ll welcome it feeling self-assured and ready. You’ll know exactly what to say (and not to say) to keep all foods equal, and nurture mindfulness and enjoyment in food.
Instead of worrying all meal long about your picky eater getting enough nutrients, you’ll be equipped with strategies to make foods fun and less intimidating. Your mindset will shift from the cycle of fear, anxiety, and self-doubt to positivity knowing all the tips and tricks that are within your control to change.

Mom of 16mo
Before working with Thalia my 16mo was having major behaviors at the dinner table from continuous moaning and groaning, to tantrums, food throwing and lots of tears (for me and him!) My husband and I had a huge fear that the techniques wouldn’t work. My husband was especially skeptical of Thalia’s ‘far-fetched’ methods and couldn’t see how they’d work after everything we’d already tried. Buuut… THEY ALL WORKED!
The constant support and reassurance from the moment we started with Thalia was invaluable. Thalia assured us we WOULD get to the bottom of the behaviors, even after my family told me for months it was just a phase.
My husband and I are now so confident and we’re in complete control of mealtimes even if things get out of hand. Food is a big part of our lives and now we enjoy them with our son.
This has changed our lives forever, and I say forever because we learnt skills with Thalia we will use with our future babies. She instilled confidence in us, I’m no longer embarrassed or ashamed when we are out to eat with my family.
Wanted to say thank you again! We’re still going super strong. To see the work we put in is continuing to develop just blows me away! I can’t remember the last time I was anxious about a mealtime.
We’re having so much fun exploring all kinds of food in a respectful manner where nothing ends up on the floor, wall, or outside the placemat.
We’re so glad we reached out! I’ve been able to focus on repairing my relationship with my son. I don’t think I could ever tell you how much you helped us!
Danaila & Robert Moe
When we reached out to Thalia our 14mo was very picky with foods. He’d refuse to try new foods, turn his head away during meals, and throw food – I was SO frustrated!!
Mealtimes were stressful and I was really worried we were falling into bad habits.
My main reservations before signing up were cost and how we’d actually implement the changes to get results. We took the leap and started seeing progress in the first week (he ate broccoli and I was not stressed anymore!)
The program was wonderful. Thalia’s approach is very appropriate and natural. The strategies helped reduce the stress for me and my son at mealtimes. Now mealtimes are enjoyable for all of us and my son’s very open and willing to try new and different foods.
Mom of 10yo and 3yo
Before working with Thalia my 10yo daughter was a super picky eater, had major meltdowns about food, snacking was a nightmare, she was fixated on sweets, and I was a short order cook 😵🥴
I had no hesitations about getting started… These problems had gone on for so many years and we were at our wit’s end, very concerned about her eating habits, and her relationship with food now that she’s almost a tween.
Now after only 3 months, she rarely has any meltdowns and eats more variety. Thalia helped us set up a routine for meals that respectfully involved our highly capable 10yo. We’re now having peaceful family meals and there’s so much more trust and closeness in our relationship. I used to have anxiety before she got home from school — now I’m waiting at the door with a hug 🤗
There were some bumps along the way and any time I had questions I’d tell my daughter “I have to think about it”, which meant “I have to send Thalia a message!!” Thalia’s program is highly supportive, between calls she’d always reply to messages promptly which meant I was confident with my direction. Thalia changed my way of thinking about food and sweets!
I’d wholeheartedly recommend this program to other parents for a toddler as well as an older child like mine (10yo.) Thalia helped us so much with suggestions I’d never have thought about.
I thought I had tried everything, but nope your tips and support proved me wrong! 🎉
Before working with Thalia I feared it wouldn’t work for me! It was scary placing my trust in someone to help me without “knowing” my child.
My 2yo had a very limited diet and was unwilling to try new foods. She’d have meltdowns at meals, push her plate away and scream. Mealtimes were extremely stressful, and I dreaded sitting at the table with her.
Since working with Thalia we’re much less stressed at mealtimes. We’ve readjusted our attitudes and mindsets, we’re setting (and sticking to) firm, respectful boundaries for our child in a much more positive manner.
We loved Thalia’s frequent check ins between calls to keep us on track even when things were hard. The chat feature made us feel supported and we were confident that there were solutions for us!
My daughter is more willing to touch and try new foods. She’s tried green beans, peas, beef, even dipped pasta into sauce, and ate chicken after months of not wanting it!! She shows more interest in food and most dinners are calm, relaxed, and even fun now.
Not only did Thalia help lighten the emotional load, she gave us the tools and confidence to continue this journey with our daughter 😊

Parents of 3yo and 10mo
With Thalia’s support our 3yo (now 4yo) is much more relaxed about sweets despite the fact he doesn’t always get them when he wants them. We’re also much better at communicating with him, making mealtimes fun and playful, and are confident in how to manage sweets and meals!
Before working together our son was fixated on sweets and we were unsure how to manage it without making it worse. Our main hesitation before signing up was partly the cost but also a worry that our issue wasn’t as severe or somehow deserving of help. However, getting specific answers to our questions and the confidence in our plan was invaluable.
Before starting with Thalia our son would ask constantly about desserts and wouldn’t accept “no” or “it’s not on the menu.” Now he does without complaint or asking again and again. He recently turned down more brownie and chocolate because he was full! We’ve never known him to turn down chocolate. He’s also eaten carrots and other veggies at meals with dessert, even ice cream!
This is a great program because at its core, it’s about setting your child up for a good relationship with food in the long term. You come away with a plan of things to try that are tailored toward your situation and it gives you a new way of thinking!
Finally, there’s respect for the parent as a whole person and not a skew to meeting the child’s (and only the child’s) needs. I’ve already recommended Thalia’s program to a friend!
(Mom of 7, 5, & 3yo)
I’ve struggled with picky eaters for years. It has been a huge source of stress for our family with kids refusing to try new foods, having meltdowns when anything new was put on their plate, and obsessions with carbs and dessert.
Before joining Thalia’s small group program I’d followed her tips on Instagram but wasn’t getting the traction I needed to move forward. I was concerned the group wouldn’t change my situation.
Now, 6 weeks on, my anxiety has lessened, and I feel more confident in putting new foods on the plate. The weekly calls boosted my confidence, helped start each week with a positive outlook, and gave me different techniques to try (and they were successful!)
The small group kept me accountable and gave me a lot more confidence staying consistent and not giving up when I had a bad day or things didn’t work as planned.
I knew I needed help and was lacking motivation to keep trying. Thalia’s approach is getting our family back on track. Connecting with others in the group facing the same struggles was so reassuring. This group takes a commitment and work to see a shift in behaviors, but I’m so happy I took the leap of faith to sign up!
