United Way’s FEAST is a nutrition education initiative that teaches adults how to provide the appropriate structure and leadership children need to grow into happy, healthy eaters. Below you will find links to download the handouts from our four-part educational series for parents and caregivers, as well as educational videos. The handouts include tips and techniques to take the stress out of mealtime, manage picky eating behaviors and mealtime tantrums, and promote positive eating habits.
