Ellyn Satter Institute Webinar
EATING COMPETENCE AND FAMILY MEALS: BRIDGING THEORY TO PRACTICE
Serving meals and following the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding sounds simple on the surface. As professionals, we ourselves might lose our way when working to stay true to the Satter feeding models, feeling our own pressure to assure nutritional excellence for our clients. This offering is for the professional who seeks to enhance their philosophical groundings in the Satter models. Take a deeper look into feeding and its relationship to building eating competence by utilizing the Making Meals Happen: step-by-step series by Ellyn Satter. You can take the pressure off yourself and the families you work with when you strengthen your own understanding of how meal interventions help families achieve nutritional excellence by achieving eating competence.
Upon successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand how parenting styles affect the way adults feed children and themselves.


  • Understand how feeding styles can support or undermine eating competence.


  • Learn how Ellyn Satter's Making Meals Happen: step- by- step guidelines support the 4 areas of eating competence for adults and children.


  • Understand how eating competence supports the Dietary Guidelines.

Jennifer Harris, RDN LD CEDRD, is a registered and licensed dietitian nutritionist. She is a certified eating disorder registered dietitian through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. She is a member of the Ellyn Satter Institute Faculty.

For over 24 years Jennifer has worked at CentraCare Health in St. Cloud, MN and specializes in the treatment of eating disorders. She works with children and adults to support their efforts to achieve effective and functional feeding and eating. Her work in the area of eating disorders led her to the conclusion that the Satter eating competence and feeding dynamics models are protective for children when considering prevention and treatment modalities for childhood feeding and eating issues, including pediatric weight divergence trends. Since her first exposure to the Satter feeding dynamics model in 1996, she has incorporated it into her practice to support patients and family members during treatment.
