For moms Nonna Joann Bruso is the bearer of:
Good News: A child’s limited food preferences can be altered. Picky eating doesn’t have to last a lifetime.
Nonna Joann Bruso’s presentations focus on the practical aspects of healthy eating and how to transform the picky eater. She explains learning most readily occurs when all the senses are involved. Because of this fact, her Baby Bite Steps incorporate multi-sensory learning in the child’s culinary experience. (Click Here for the Baby Bites: Transforming a Picky Eater into a Healthy Eater synopsis.)
She also integrates various sensory techniques in her presentations to moms and teachers. After all, it’s so much more fun to learn that way!
