In this episode, we talk about Intuitive Eating in the family dynamic. We are all born with an internal wisdom, but we get pulled away by diet culture and external regulation of eating – even as young kids with well-intentioned parents.
Elyse gives a plethora of tips to raising Intuitive Eaters on this show, including some things I haven’t heard yet like food preferences being brain based and hormonally driven — like if you have a penchant for sweet and creamy vs salty and crunchy.
Tune in and find out how you can set boundaries on body and weight talk with doctors and other people who may have concerns for your child’s weight — and if you’re concerned, some specific ways you can positively encourage intuitive eating skills in your kids and teenagers.
