Online sensory food school comes with the 8 module course Goodbye Picky Eating valued at $167 PLUS an initial 30 minute Zoom consult for individual goal setting and feeding history gathering session. If you are waiting for enrollment, book into the course now and you get a discount code for OSFS to use at any future enrollment period.

What does the online sensory food school intensive program involve?

1) 3 x 30 minute online group food play sessions for your child to be involved in. You get your shopping list one week in advance including a photo for set-ups. The group classes are held either in the morning for preschoolers or after school for older children (MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA TIME – here is a link to a time conversion website to assist you with figuring out your time zone equivalent). When the intake period is open, you can choose your group preference in the drop-down option. Limited group numbers to allow for optimal observations.

2) 1 x 40 minute individual parent coaching session to go through content relating to family meals, food chaining ideas and continued sensory strategies to help your child with their feeding functional goals. To be booked at a time that suits you via email liason with Simone.

3) Individualized report outlining observations, recommendations going forward and home economics tips to continue working on the same team as your child to achieve feeding functional goals. Please allow up to two weeks for the report after the course has been completed.

So, there is no need to wait for the intake period to open to get started on saying Goodbye to Picky Eating in your household!



Join children’s nutritionist, Simone Emery, in an intensive program to learn strategies to help your child approach new foods.

Over 5 sessions (2 individual sessions and 3 group sessions), we explore the sensory nature of foods, how reading children’s cues help us create manageable learning experiences and what strategies YOU can use at YOUR home to ease stress and move towards family goal foods.

Enrollments close a week prior to the intensive food school program to allow you to arrange your timetable, purchase the foods, complete relevant modules of the included “Goodbye Picky Eating” program (read all about that program here) and have your 30 minute parent-only pre-course introductory Zoom session with Simone. The initial zoom session goes for 30 minutes and helps you feel comfortable with the technology / links. Plus, the session includes a private goal setting session, current dietary repertoire and feeding history gathering. Simone will email you upon purchase to arrange your first individual session.


To be announced in July

Within the program, we have 3 group play dates via Zoom at your choice of either the preschool time or after school time.  We also have a further parent-only individual session to recap on the content relating to family meals, food chaining ideas and continued sensory strategies to help your child with their feeding functional goals. This session is to be booked within a week of the program’s conclusion at a time that suits you via email liaison with Simone. After this phone call, the individualized report will be written for your records with additional recommendations, resources, recipes and home economics tips to keep working with your child. Please allow up to two weeks for the report to arrive.

Due to the group based nature, there are no make-ups available for the sensory play sessions, yet recordings of the sessions will be made. Please ensure children are dressed appropriately for recording. Participation in this program (noted by your purchase) includes consent to recording the video of the play sessions and distribution of the recorded session via secure link to the other group participants. The reports written will not be disclosing details of other group participants. The reports are for individual use and may be used to advocate for additional health services, if recommended.

The program results will depend on attendance, participation and disclosure of information during parent sessions with Simone.  All allergies, sensitivities and dietary restrictions need to be disclosed ASAP to enable customization of shopping list and lesson plans.  For more information on how Simone runs online play-based programs read this post here and this one too.

If you aren’t sure if this program is for you, have a read about some of the sensory aspects of food that I work with in this post or send me an email.
