What: “Parents deserve to hear the same best practice feeding message from all of us. The Satter Division of Responsibility in feeding represents such a best practice,” says Carol Danaher from the Ellyn Satter Institute. This year’s forum features Carol who will share her unique experience in achieving a unified voice in her county.

Let’s build on the success and momentum of last year’s forum and turn Ellyn Satter’s inspiration into action. Have you tried to integrate Ellyn’s models into your practice? Bring your questions, find out how to address challenges, and share your achievements.

Join the discussion with an excellent group of speakers who will help us to collectively spread the word that how we eat matters!
