"I think mindful eating resonated most with my 7 year-old son who has multiple food allergies. At lunch one day he told me that his quinoa had traveled a long way to get to his plate. His awareness of the food he intakes has evolved to a whole new level. I find that he is often practicing mindfulness while eating.
My 10-year old daughter who often felt anxious about future events learned how to be present. After her last session she told me that she noticed when she was being distracted by future thoughts and couldn’t focus and how she had to work hard at being in the moment. I found this awareness extraordinary."
