In a diet-obsessed world, how do we raise our kids to grow up with a healthy relationship with food? My guest today is Sally Kuzemchak of Real Mom Nutrition, and we share our philosophies about feeding children.
Sally explains how she’s allowing her children to experience all foods and teach them about balance without restriction. Find out what happened when Sally experimented with giving her kids access to ‘forbidden’ food.
We also talk about food fear mongering, the crazy pressure put on Moms to serve up perfect nutritionally balanced food, as well as the importance of finding our “caregiver voice”.
