We attended the Healthy Beginnings Clinic at Verbal Beginnings for 8 weeks. Prior to completing this program my son would only eat grilled cheese, chicken nuggets, and quesadillas along with snacks. He would not try new foods and would not eat fruits or vegetables. After attending this program my son is willing to try new foods and he loves fruit! He wants an apple and banana everyday! He also loves watermelon, carrots, and will even eat green beans. My husband and I frequently state that this is the best money we ever spent. Ben and Ahra frequently follow up to see if anything needs to be tweaked. They truly care about the progress your child makes and celebrates the victories with you! I will be forever grateful to them for my son's healthy and broad diet.
