Redefine your mealtime approach

All children deserve peaceful and balanced mealtimes in a non-pressuring and respectful environment. And all parents deserve to know how to create this for their children while feeling confident, authentic and not drained by mealtimes struggles, constant bargaining, and manipulation strategies.

I’m Gitte

I’m a psychologist and a mom. As a psychologist, I have worked with families for 11 years. I know first-hand what a respectful and empathic approach can do for our children and the way they thrive. Mealtimes, though, seem to be one of the areas where we parents often forget our empathy and respect for our kids. Which leads to mealtime struggles and children rejecting food. I want to help you change that.

I live in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, with my husband and 3 daughters. Originally, I’m from Denmark, a Nordic country, which has shaped my parental approach as well as my psychological and professional approach.

About the One-Bite Rule

"Just one more bite, and then you can have dessert!". Does that sound familiar? For most parents, this is a popular mealtime tool, but I will tell you more about why we should skip that rule for good.

Course Breakdown

A New Fun Activity Every Week

Spice painting is the first of the weekly activities of the course. Our activities are meant to involve your kids in exploring food in a fun, educational, and playful way.

Week 1 Activity of the Week

You will learn how to:


Help your child become a food hero

I will show you how to transform your child into someone who is curious about food and who dares to taste, touch, and smell food. A food confident child, in other words.


Become more confident in stepping back from controlling, pressuring and cohersing at mealtimes

I will help you change your parental approach to being encouraging, respectful, and empathic instead of a forcing, strictly rule-based and controlling approach.


Understand mealtime psychology

I will help you understand your child’s eating behaviours and teach you about the psychological dynamics at the dinner table. Because this is the key to change them.


Create good mealtime memories for your child – and for your family

For many families, mealtimes are the only time of day where the whole family is together.

Balanced and respectful mealtime memories will create resilient, independent, and confident children. They will pass this on to their own families when they grow up.
