Counting calories? Gluten-free? Going vegan? Vegetarianism? Juice cleanses? Grappling with the confusing food messages and choices in our culture is difficulty at any age. As parents we are faced with the challenge of deciding what constitutes a healthy and "normal" relationship between our teens and their food choices. Experimentation with food and diet culture has become close to inevitable in the life of teens.
Join The Lotus Collaborative's Registered Dietician Christina Gaunce and Eating Disorder Therapist Lauren Reppy, for an evening of education on the "thin-line" between diet and disordered eating. Learn how to navigate through the tricky balance of relaxation and firmness when it comes to our teens and their health.
