Make sitting down to family meals the best part of your day
Imagine sitting down at the dinner table and thinking, “Mealtime is the highlight of my day!”
With all the effort you’re putting in to serve up all those different food choices just so you can fulfill your toddler’s nutritional needs, you deserve to enjoy eating as a family.
That’s why if you’ve been trying to…
...stay patient when your toddler refuses another carefully cooked dinner (even after your hours of researching tasty toddler meals)
...keep calm when food ends up everywhere except for your little one’s mouth (while trying to ignore the totally normal, but slightly stressful messy behaviors)
…not give up while presenting a food over and over again (even though you want to ask everyone,“Why won’t my child eat?”)
...minimize your concern that your toddler is turning into a picky eater (and find yourself resorting to using distractions and rewards to to get them to eat)
You may be wondering, “What’s it going to take to enjoy sitting as a family for meals?”
Keep reading. And let me, a registered dietitian and childhood nutrition expert, show you a simple way to begin.
But first, there’s something I need to tell you...
As parents, our role is to provide food and opportunities for toddlers to eat
Our role in the feeding relationship is not to force our kids to eat.
Often the more you push your toddler to eat, the more they refuse and the more food they throw! Sometimes this refusal can make parents wonder if they’re doing something wrong that’s turning their child into a picky eater.
The truth is, picky eating is a developmentally normal stage that kids go through. Young children often refuse to eat, prefer to stick with their favorite foods, or throw food.
These behaviors are how they’re establishing independence and figuring out the world.
Kids have an internal drive to eat that parents don’t have to teach them. Usually if we get out of their way, they’ll figure out how much and what they want to eat (within the confines of what they’re offered.)
By staying focused on your role in the feeding relationship, parents can help a young child move on from their picky eating behaviors and foster lifelong, healthy mealtime habits.
Picture how relaxed mealtimes could be if you knew how to...
….even better, you’d do all this with total confidence.
And that’s where Mastering Mealtimes comes in.
Mastering Mealtimes is a one-stop program for parents ready to enjoy family mealtimes…
...so you can go from frustrated line-chef trying to serve up alllll the foods in an effort to make your toddler eat their meal rather than throwing it on the floor to finally experiencing relaxed family mealtimes.

If you want to feel better about feeding your toddler, this is the program you need
Created by dietitian and mom, Renae D’Andrea, Mastering Mealtimes provides you with the expert guidance needed to form the entire foundation for feeding your toddler so they actually eat that amount of food their body needs. Hint: It might be a lot less than you think!
Here’s an overview of the three key areas we’ll focus on throughout the program’s modules, so you can complete the program knowing how to:
Foster A Healthy Relationship With Food
Everyone comes to the kitchen with their own experiences with food. Learn how to notice your own beliefs around food that may be influencing your child’s behaviors. Plus, discover the simple things you can do to ensure your child develops a healthy relationship with food.
Identify Your Role In The Feeding Relationship

Learn how to create a schedule, manage table behaviors, and other nutritionist strategies that’ll set your family up for mealtime success. Plus, learn age-appropriate ways to deal with challenging toddler behavior at the table.
Follow A Simple Meal Planning System

Hundreds of families are now sitting down to calmer mealtimes
Here's what two moms had to say...
Mom to a toddler
“I’m now focused on the long-term goal of helping my kid develop a healthy relationship with food.”
My biggest struggle involved my mindset around eating. I would stress out at every meal (that's 5x a day!), watching my toddler like a hawk and finding ways to sneak food into her mouth. I worried about if she was getting in enough calories in the short-term, and in the long-term, if she'd become picky.
I am WAY less stressed, WAY more confident. I'm intentional with letting go of control and letting my kid take over her areas of responsibility. I tell myself I do my best and let the rest go.
Mom to a toddler
“One of the most reassuring and informative things I’ve got in my mom toolkit!”
This course was a gold mine of information - honestly, I’ve already recommended it to most of my mom friends! Renae covers conceptual ideas about the approach to food and practical tips I didn’t know were important. I cannot explain enough how life-changing and empowering this course is!

Meet the dietitian behind the program
Hey, I'm Renae
As a dietitian and a mom, I have a passion for helping parents learn how to start their child off on the right foot when it comes to food.
So many different resources out there make it more complicated than it needs to be!
When I set out to start feeding my daughter and immersed myself in all the different recommendations that are out there on the internet, I realized how many of those recommendations could hinder, instead of help, a parent's desire to feed their child well.
Every family is different and has different needs.
But I'm here to help lend you support and give you the knowledge you need to trust in your choices!
Let me pass the mic to a few Mastering Mealtimes alumni
“I’m not putting pressure on myself or my toddler anymore.”
I don’t try to do anything to get him to eat anymore. Instead, if he doesn’t eat, I wait a few hours and offer food again.
Mom to a toddler
“I have more confidence in meal planning now.”
After watching your meal examples, I now have the confidence I’m on the right track.
Mom to a 15-month old
Get ready to reclaim family mealtimes
Mastering Mealtimes is the keep-it-simple resource you’ll use to finally trade “trying all the things” for “trusting that your child will eat.”
Questions you might be asking yourself
Yes and no.
Mastering Mealtimes includes many of the same strategies that feeding therapists use to help the pickiest of eaters. These strategies will set the foundation for all families, even those with the pickiest of eaters.
Some families will need more hands-on, one-on-one help for their child to work through some of their trickier eating behaviors, which the course doesn't provide.
You’re not alone with that feeling. I hear this from parents all the time.
It’s so tough when you try one thing, and then it just creates another problem (e.g., offering a reward for eating broccoli.) I promise you that Mastering Mealtimes is a judgment-free space to learn the foundation of creating balanced meals that help kids thrive.
Enjoy 24 months of access to this course as your go-to resource for feeding your toddler with confidence.
You sure can, but you’re missing out on the big picture when you piece together the information from the advice you gather across the internet. You may learn balanced meal ideas, or even how to stay calm when dealing with epic dinner table tantrums, or even why it’s a great idea to let your child lead the way.
What you won’t learn is how fitting these together in a certain, developmentally appropriate way creates a solid foundation for happier mealtimes.
Mastering Mealtimes gives it to you all in one place. Through an easily digestible and comprehensive format based on research, years of experience, and tested by the hundreds of parents who have used the program to raise a toddler who has a great relationship with food.
Unfortunately, feeding doesn’t work that way.
Our role in the feeding relationship is to provide opportunities to eat, and a child’s role is to decide how much and what they eat.
That’s why inside Mastering Mealtimes, I can give you a framework that helps you figure out how to provide balanced meals for your child while still listening to their needs.
There are no refunds for Mastering Mealtimes and here’s why:
- The content is based on years of work as a registered dietitian
- It’s proven in the home of 100s of parents
- Months and months of work (years, really) have gone into creating this program
- When you finish the course, you’ll be well prepared (and actually enjoy sitting down to family meals). That alone is more than worth the $99 investment.
