Nutrition Coaching for Caregivers

When a child or loved one is struggling with disordered eating it can be challenging to navigate how to help care for them.  Regular meal support, reflecting on diet culture's impact and the ways we talk about food and bodies, and implementing new food practices into the home is a lot to take on while balancing all the other demands of life.


Living through and recovering from disordered eating or an eating disorder(ED) is a steep learning curve.  Not just for the person with the disorder, but for caregivers and partners as well.  Unfortunately, insurance does not cover 1:1 sessions with caregivers, parents, or partners unless it is Family Based Therapy(FBT) with a therapist or treatment facility.  This leaves a huge gap in the treatment team care process of recovery for clients and their support community.

In nutrition coaching for caregivers sessions, you will learn how to:

  • support mealtimes that compliment your loved ones current food plan or treatment care practices

  • unpack the nutrition recovery process and typical nutrition ED progressions

  • actively dismantle diet-culture based food and body practices that may be impairing your loved ones recovery journey

  • approach mealtimes with compassion, curiosity, care, and consistency

There are some great books and podcasts available on how to support a loved one with an eating disorder or Intuitive Eating practices, however they do not provide the personalized reflection space or skills development this journey may be requiring of you.
