Raising Body Confident Kids

Live workshop via Zoom
United Kingdom
Europe
Verena Dickson
Registered Nutritionist
Kinder Nutrition
By age 4 some children already hold strong views on how bodies should look. Children as young as 5 are aware of weight-loss strategies. It’s not just girls, also young boys are increasingly unhappy with their appearance.
Media have created a benchmark of attractiveness by which many young people judge themselves. Images of the ‘ideal body’ are everywhere and many kids have internalized these societal beliefs. It’s impossible to shield our kids from these messages but we can help them build body confidence and strengthen their resilience against media influence.
Join me in this 90 minute workshop empowering a generation of kids to have a positive relationship with their body.
