Summary: 

CEDC treats children and teens with eating disorders every day, so we see how easy it is for the wrong messages about food and body image to take hold. That’s why we want to help parents and caregivers understand the importance of fostering in their children a positive relationship with food. Our diet- and body-obsessed culture can make it difficult for children and teens to develop a normal relationship with food and their body. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from someone who talks to children and teens about the food messaging they receive every day from the media. Fortunately, there are ways to steer children and teens toward a healthy relationship with their bodies and food.

Join us for a fun and interactive discussion with CEDC’s Food Service Director on:
• How to help your children foster a positive relationship with food
• How to develop positive messaging around food and guidelines for handling today’s diet culture
• How to balance the messages about childhood obesity and eating disorders

Cambridge Eating Disorder Center provides individuals suffering with eating disorders a comprehensive continuum of support services focused on their recovery. Our treatment programs focus on reducing the eating disorder symptoms while promoting the development of a healthy self that encompasses both emotional and physical well-being
