Enjoy nutritious foods
Stop wasting money

Are you struggling to feed your child but have no idea how to fix it?

Does your child struggle with:

  • Picky eating?
  • Inability to participate in social events?
  • Eating less than 30 foods?
  • Emotional sensitivity, food anxiety or food phobia? 
  • Failure to grow and thrive?
  • Being on the lowest percentile of growth?

Is Every meal a battle?

And, you constantly get advice like…

“It’s normal, all kids are picky”

“Don’t worry, he’ll outgrow it”

“Just give her more food”

“Just don’t be a short-order-cook and he’ll start eating better”

“Send her to bed hungry, don’t worry she won’t die! She’ll learn to eat when it’s time to eat”

“You need to be more assertive as a parent”

All advice aside, the truth is you’re terrified.

This struggle is Real. Exhausting. Scary. 

You have no idea what you’re doing and the worry eats you from inside.

You might feel like you’re failing as a parent.

You don’t feel successful as a parent and the fear, worry, and guilt leave you feeling hopeless and like it’s all your fault. You might even regret becoming a parent in the first place.

If you resonate with any of these struggles, then read on – because there are solutions.

Your child’s pediatrician tells you:

  • “Your daughter needs more nutrients” 
  • “Your son needs to eat healthier foods”
  • “Supplement her with Meal Replacement Shakes” 

And you’re thinking: “No kidding, but how? My child doesn’t eat anything?!”

This intensifies your fear even more!

What’s the right thing to do?

I know how you feel!

Not too long ago, I was a mom of a ‘picky eater’ too.

My daughter, a healthy baby eater, became an extremely difficult toddler to feed.

She became adamant about food, refused almost everything I offered and became a carboholic. 

She wouldn’t sit at the table, had a habit of wasting food, changed her mind frequently and described food as ‘yucky & smelly.’ 

At some point, she literally lived off of crackers, chips, cheese, cereal, cucumbers and (maybe) apples. 

Basically anything white, salty, crunchy or sweet.

As the years went by it had become extremely difficult to feed her and, with time, we’ve noticed that she started to lose weight and, in the words of some concerned family members, became “all bones.” 

That’s when we started to worry for REALS.

My husband and I decided to run some tests to see if anything was wrong medically. 

As often happens, the doctor assured us that her blood work turned normal and she’s totally fine. 

But we knew she wasn’t. 

She complained about stomach aches, was constantly fatigued, would lay on the floor, and refused to walk on her feet (we used the stroller until age six!), had dark circles under her eyes. Sometimes she even woke up in the middle of the night with severe pain in her belly, and asked to be fed!

She wasn’t well. We knew it.

Ironically, I’m trained as a nutritionist. It is I who should have the answers to this problem. However, for many years I didn’t. 

If you are reading this, your story is likely to be similar to mine.

Your child refuses to eat, is slow to grow and gain weight and/or picks his/her food, maybe the situation is so bad that you have to use a tube to feed your child. 

I have been working as a pediatric nutritionist for the past 7 years and have helped families with picky eating with nutritional and parenting support and coaching. 

I’ve worked with families and kids who:

  • Refused food
  • ate only 5 foods, 
  • are a “nightmare to feed”
  • scream and throw tantrums every time they sit to eat. 
  • at age 2, they still like their food pureed. 
  • don’t eat any vegetables
  • don’t like to sit or even be at the dinner table.
  • gag and vomit when eat. 

Two things you need to know: 

  1. Your child (or you) isn’t broken/weird/crazy/etc. 
  2. In order to be successful at feeding your child, you must have a mindset shift. 

In the process of finding a solution for my own daughter and to help the thousands of parents who’ve approached me over the years, I’ve created a bundle of solid resources to help parents of picky eaters.

I’ve approached world-leading experts who specialize in feeding children and asked them questions on your behalf

I’ve done this so that you don’t have to go see a million experts and visit different practitioners who will help you to “fix your child”.

Your child is not broken and doesn’t need fixing, all you need to do is change your perspective, learn some practical tools and then implement them with your child.

This interview series is designed to find the root cause of your child’s struggle with food, and provide you with the tools necessary to help him/her. 

I’ve interviewed world-leading experts on feeding children, people who I’ve been following for years.

Among them are a nutritionist, occupational therapist, feeding expert, feeding therapist,  pediatrician, a DOR expert (from The Ellyn Satter Institute), EQ expert, life coach, a meal plan provider, and someone who specializes in teaching kids to help you cook.

My number one goal with this program is to help you create a solid database of resources, experts, books, programs and tools you can turn to, to help you feed your child with love and good sense. 

This program IS for you if: 

  • You want your child to be a healthy eater.
  • You are ready to make mealtime fun and pleasant.
  • Whatever you’re doing doesn’t work and you’re ready to try something new.
  • You feel that there is no need to supplement your child with sweet meal replacements shakes.
  • You want your child to thrive.

This program ISN’T for you if:

  • You’re not willing to open your mind.
  • You don’t trust anyone to help you.
  • You don’t believe this problem is solvable.
  • You don’t want to do the work necessary to transform your child’s relationship with food.

I personally have learned so much and was happy to see my daughter responding so beautifully to the different strategies I’ve tried and implemented.

If you take the time to listen and then do the work you will see drastic changes in your child’s interest in food. Not just healthy food, I talk about food in general, because I know some children don’t want to eat at all, which makes their parents nervous and anxious. 

Feeding our children is ingrained in us and I know how stressful and nerve-wracking it is to have a child who resists and/or rejects food.

How does this program work?

This program consists of 11 interviews with experts who specialize in food, nutrition, health and feeding. 

These are strategic conversations with questions I’ve had myself and have had clients ask me with regards to how to feed a picky child who is struggling with food and eating. 

This program will save you thousands of dollars, endless and expensive appointments with therapists, coaches, nutritionists, doctors, dieticians, etc.

I was very worried about my daughters’ eating habits.


My daughter was really heavy on PediaSure but I knew it wasn’t healthy. I wanted to learn how to share more healthy and balanced meals with my family. I wanted to learn how to cook with real food. 

 I loved your holistic approach to feeding children, it is so much more than just-food. We’ve talked about the emotional connection, and how feeding children is actually simple. There are a few simple techniques and strategies I implemented that changed my own relationship to feeding my child and my daughters’ relationship with food.

Why should you invest in this program?

One study has shown that families with picky eaters are more likely to fight over food, argue, and be too preoccupied with food.

This, in turn, has a negative effect on your relationship with your child and might create a negative vibe between parents.

Moreover, studies show that picky eating gets worse if not addressed in time. It’s best to solve this problem while kids are still young. The younger your child, the better.

Imagine:

  • Mealtime is actually fun (YES it’s possible!)
  • There are no more power struggles at the table.
  • You feel confident as a parent, you feel in control.
  • You know exactly which nutrient-rich to serve your picky eater so you know they are getting enough nutrition
  • You know how to offer food to your child in an appealing and enticing way so they are more willing to try.
  • Your child is willing to try new foods and you enjoy feeding her
  • You don’t feel powerless in front of your child and you don’t cave in and don’t back down
  • Your child enjoys food and eats without fits.
  • Your child eats vegetables!
  • Your child takes no longer than 20-30 minutes to eat.
  • Your child thrives and grows as expected and you feel confident that they’re on the right track.
  • You don’t have to spoon-feed
  • Your child weans himself off of baby food at the right time for him
  • You don’t have to bribe your child with a dessert or sweets
  • Your child doesn’t call food ‘yuck’!
  • Your child is eating willfully the food you’ve worked so hard to prepare

Who am I and why should you listen to me?

If we haven’t met yet, – my name is Dorit Palvanov, I’m a wife, and a mom of three kids.

I am a registered holistic nutritionist and host of the show – Confident, Energized and Sexy Mama, a weekly podcast for moms who are ready to thrive as women, wives and mothers.

I’ve helped thousands of parents provide better food options with love and good sense through online resources, feeding programs and one-on-one coaching.

I’ve created this program first and foremost for myself.

There was a time when our daughter became extremely difficult to feed. She resisted everything I offered! I felt hopeless, weak and unsuccessful as a mother.

This has negatively impacted our relationship so much that I’ve begun resenting my own child!

It was hard, uninspiring and painful to see my child being more in control than I was.

This is not how I envisioned motherhood to be.

I was looking for solutions for my own child’s picky eating problem.

In my search, I’ve connected with many experts in the field of nutrition and child feeding.

What I have found was transformational for my own family.

So eventually I invited the experts to share their knowledge and strategies with you!

As a podcast host for the past 2.5 years, I see the power of interviews! Research shows that listening to interviews (or eavesdropping) is a much better way to learn and retain information!

Before you spend hundreds (or thousands) on private consultations, consider investing in this program.

For $47 you get access to all 11 interviews.

What will happen if you don’t buy this program?

Like I mentioned previously, Picky Eating becomes a more serious problem if ignored. The sooner you take action against it, the faster you’ll be able to eliminate this struggle and enjoy your child.

Also, you won’t have to go through the struggles I went through in order to help your child become a healthier eater. I wish there was a program like this when I was struggling.

This program is well rounded, balanced and holistic in terms of the advice and knowledge you’re going to gain from it. There’s nothing like it out there!

I want you to be confident with your purchase. Get the content, start listening to the interviews, try things out and see how it’s working for you and your child. If you feel like this is just not right for you, I will refund you the full amount – within the first 30 days of your purchase. Sounds good?

Frequent Questions

The 11 audio interviews will be delivered through a member’s portal. All you need is an internet access and a browser to listen. It’s as easy as clicking on the Play button and you’re all set! The rest of the content is in the form of videos, PDFs and guides pages. You can use your computer, phone, iPad or iPod to view the content.

Everything is hosted online so you can access this material from anywhere in the world. This is a Do-It-Yourself program so you can do them in your own time. You should be able to go through the entire program in 14 days. 

Each interview is about 30-60 minutes long. These are super fun to listen to! It would feel like you’re eavesdropping to someone’s conversation (which has been proven as the best way to retain information). The cool thing about audio files is you don’t have to be staring at a screen. I know how busy you are, so you can absolutely listen to these interviews while doing the dishes, folding the laundry, ironing, even driving. I’ve designed this program to be in audio files intentionally to make it easier for you to consume and learn from. 

YES! I’ve interviewed people whose expertise is helping children with feeding disorders, failure to thrive, infantile anorexia (outdated term), problem feeder, ARFID (avoidant restrictive food intake disorder), feeding aversion, selective eating, and selective eating disorder. Picky eating is considered as extreme, “…if your child’s eating is affecting his social, emotional, or physical development and causing family conflict or worry…” 

Yes! This is the point of the program! Having said that, I want you to remember that it’s never the broccoli that matters! The focus is your relationship with your child and how to use food as a bridge between you and your child instead of allowing this to become a barrier. 

Yes! Both moms and dads can learn. In fact, the best way would be listening to these interviews together and creating a cohesive strategy between both mom and dad. It’s best when both parents are on the same page, but if that isn’t the case in your home, you’ll still benefit from the program. 

For life! 

We have a vibrant online community of parents who’ve done this program. We support each other and I, Dorit, go there on a daily basis to support our members.
