Food and Behavior Workshop (How food choices and eating patterns can affect children’s behavior)

November 21, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


We at Hissah Enrichment Center and Lelkheir, look forward to helping parents focus on all aspects and all stages of parenthood. We are dedicated to supporting parents as they thrive, grow, and find enjoyment in their experiences throughout the parenthood journey.

We have all heard the saying “you are what you eat”, but have never really paid attention to its’ true meaning. As we now live in a time where health and behavioral issues in children are far too common, we are beginning to take note and are trying to understand why this is happening. The first thing to focus on is what we are feeding our children. As “natural” food sources are becoming less available, the link between food and behavior gets stronger. The connection between food and children’s moods and anxiety levels has been established. The importance of eating the right foods for physical health, stable emotional and psychological health is increasingly relevant.

Mrs. Lama Younis invites you to an informative and engaging workshop that will have long-term benefits for you and the overall health and wellbeing of your child and family.

If you are a parent of a child (6 months – teenagers), someone who works with kids in an educational or therapy setting, in the nutrition/food sector, or just someone who is interested in getting to the root of where the relationship between food and behavior begins – this 2 and a half hour workshop is for you.

You will learn:

In attending this workshop, you will empower yourself and your children by:

• Understanding the link between nutrition and healthy child development.
• Learning what foods will affect your child’s everyday behavior.
• Gaining insight into the relationship between food and academic performance.
• How to look for good and bad ingredients in food labels.
• How to tackle feeding challenges.
• Learning how you can best support and help your child today using the strategies and tools provided in the workshop, in addition to a focus on children with special needs as well.
• Discovering helpful tips and resources included in our handbook written by our professionals at HEC.

Workshop Fee:  1,575 SAR (including handbook and 5% VAT)
