Help Families End Overeating with Dina Rose, PhD

Dina Rose, PhD has developed a Habits Approach of effective techniques that;
help families focus on food patterns rather than individual nutrients, 
improve snacking and 
promote feeding strategies that are responsive to children’s hunger and satiety signals.

There may be no more important public health initiative than helping Americans end overeating. Everyone knows the statistics: One third of all American adults suffer from obesity. And according to the CDC, about one in five school-aged children also have obesity.  Unfortunately, while most people know how they —and their children —ought to eat, many of us fail to effectively put this knowledge into practice. Clear doing is much harder than knowing. Join Dina Rose, PhD as she helps us with our clear doing as she presents How Nutrition Professionals Can Help Families End Overeating: The Habits Approach on Tuesday May 2nd, 2017 at 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST.

For more information and to RSVP please visit:

Dina Rose, PhD is a sociologist, parent educator, feeding expert and the author of It’s Not About the Broccoli: Three Habits to Teach Your Kids for a Lifetime of Healthy Eating (Perigee). Dina has been training parents, pediatricians, dietitians, and early childhood educators in the Habits Approach for the past decade. Her work has been featured on TV, radio, and in both print and online news sources. Dina's approach is so unique it has been called “transformational.” In addition to writing her own blog, It's Not About Nutrition, Dina is also a regular contributor to Psychology Today.
