The goals of the program are to (1) increase food awareness, (2) decrease anxiety to new food textures and types, (3) provide consistent and appropriate mealtime behaviors and (4) comprehensive parent training and collaboration to facilitate generalization of new feeding behaviors across context.

Additionally, participation in cultivating a vegetable garden exposes children to different sensory experiences and foods. The program is appropriate for infants to elementary school and meets one day per week for 2 hour sessions. A program for older children is being developed.
