If you’re honest, all your efforts are making it worse.
You love your child. And, all you want is for them to be healthy,
You know you shouldn’t But you can’t help yourself from
.They roll their eyes at you, and binge eat when you’re not looking.
They glance at you guilty when they ask for another piece of lasagne.
It’s a bubbling tension, clouding every interaction and impacting your relationship.
Your mother who calls her chubby as a “joke”
Your father who tells everyone that Sarah’s appetite is as big as an elephant
Your sister asking you if you’ve checked their thyroid or tried keto-for-kids
Be bullied + teased
Never stop eating (unless you tell him to)
Fight with food on a daily basis and enter the cycle of yo-yo dieting
Not be teased
Have healthy habits
Feel great in their body
Eat a nutritious balanced diet
Everything you’ve been told: about diets, carbs & normal growth is wrong.
But, If you carry on along this path, your child will suffer from exactly what you’re trying to prevent: a lifetime of fighting food, makes poor food choices and hating their body.
…. guarantee your child has a healthy relationship with food, and eats normally?
….help your child’s weight, without harming their self-esteem?
….empower your child to eat when they are hungry and stops when they are full
Hi, I’m Eliana and I’m here to give you the tools you are searching for so your child can eat normally and feel confident in their bodies,- for now and for life. My journey into Intuitive Eating and sDOR began when my eldest child stopped growing. I then encountered how negative the body messages us parents get, and how while we want to do right, we often end up harming our kids. I learned the science behind healthy eating habits, and positive body images and now, it’s my mission to share that with you.
I always believed I was an overweight child. But I had a host of unhealthy food-related behaviours, a looong history of dieting, and a flawed body image. While I have made enormous strides in my own relationship with food and eating, I found myself defaulting to trying to ‘manage’ my 9yo’s weight and body.. Eliana is helping me to become aware of these tendencies and to engage differently with a) how my child eats, b) her pre-teen body, and c) prevailing diet culture. Eliana’s content has also given me the words to present this way of thinking to my husband. Eliana herself is a marvel: smart, assertive, kind and firm. Her courses are fantastic.
I was worried that my daughter’s sudden change in eating was an emotional escape. Now, she eats the amount that she feels comfortable with. Food isn’t such a focus. I have let go of anxiety around food and now trust my child knows what they need and what’s good for her body and I accept her for who she is. Every child is different. What surprised me most was how quickly I noticed a shift in her behaviour around food when I changed gear. My stuff was projecting onto her. Mealtimes used to be stressful and anxiety-provoking and now are a connecting time and a trusting space”

What if you had the exact tools & right outlook to ensure your child has a healthy weight, loves their body – without your control?
When you embrace this research-backed method so you can end the weight worries, and give your child the gift of a healthy relationship with food, for now and life.
"Having an overweight daughter is not easy. Every day is a battle - not with your daughter - but within YOURSELF. Eliana’s course gave me hope and encouragement that it's not only about the now. It's about your daughter’s whole life-and her relationship with food. I'm so grateful that I did the course before I messed her up- as my job is NOT to make my daughter thin-it's to help her have a good self- esteem and a healthy body.”

“I have learned that everyone has different bodies and how to accept that. I trust how his body needs to develop and I have noticed my child leaving food on his plate. I learned that body weight does not define people. I was surprised how our attitudes and conversations affected the issues. We have more family meals, and mealtimes are relaxed instead of stressful."

You could carry on rationing the pasta, giving them “the look”, feeling embarrassed by your child’s flabby stomach and cringing when you buy them pants 4 sizes above their age….
Or you could give your child the gift of lifelong body confidence and bring back calm & peace to the family table – and connect deeply with your child again!
