Kids, Hypnosis and Eating

Beginning December 2016 we are no longer accepting clients

In our Phoenix Hypnosis office, Sandi Graves has helped many children overcome a number of eating issues and Sandi has found she can answer yes, when asked, “Can hypnosis help my kid eat better?” Many times the issue is that the parent feels like the child won’t eat a balanced meal.

You may even remember your own parents fretting over the table because you wouldn’t eat your vegetables. Yet, you eventually learned, accepted or realized that those previously disgusting foods were in fact, pretty good. You could find yourself ending the battle at the dinner table and instead find you and your child enjoying meal times together eating balanced and nutritious meals.

Why won’t my child eat what I put on his plate?

Here is a personal story from Sandi: “Sometimes I feel like chuckling when a parent asks me why the child refuses to eat the food he is presented with. There comes this recent event and a picture I have in my mind of my grandson making me a meal. And what he created, well, it was definitely something I almost refused to eat, but I eventually picked thru the concoction to find what I liked. You see, he liked mustard, olives, cereal, milk and pickles. He put it all in a Ziploc bag, shook it up and served it up with a huge smile. Now, he ate his serving and was very happy and proud but I had a little harder time showing my gratitude since I only picked out the olives. It must feel and taste just like that to a child sometimes.”

I think family mealtime is really important. There’s a lot of research that shows kids are going to do better in school and have more self-esteem if you can all sit down and eat together.

Why is my child such a picky eater

Developmental reasons:

You may have heard that kids go thru these growth spurts and the body requires a particular food which could explain the reason for the food phase. Maybe and maybe not, I don’t know. But, what I have seen in my Phoenix Hypnosis clinic, is that hypnosis can get a person, even a picky eater, to try different foods and overcome eating difficulties. Sometimes kids seem to favor one food, or food category, over another and go thru these phases. Even eating everything in sight and then refusing to eat barely anything and most of the time it makes no logical sense why this is happening. Well, hypnosis is one way for a person to get around the logical thought process, stop fighting with your stubborn child and get them to begin trying other foods.

Emotional Reasons:

Kids may even have had a negative experience eating a particular food and have created associations to other similar foods. It doesn’t even have to make sense why. That is why hypnosis can help kids eat better. Hypnosis lets you move past the logical mind and kids respond to fantasy, imagination and creativity better than most adults. Once they let go and explore the magic within themselves they create scenes and reasons to want to try other foods. It sounds simple, but it is probably a way you haven’t tried yet, so why not try. You can call me, schedule a hypnosis session and see how this might be a viable solution to get your child eating again.
