I can pretty confidently say that every single one of us has grown up hearing someone speak negatively about their body, and we definitely didn’t learn skills like intuitively eating in school. Now as we’re navigating taking not only ourselves, but many of us taking care of our kids it’s no wonder we’re stressed about food and knowing how to raise physically and mentally healthy kids. I’m so excited to have Megan from Feeding Littles on the podcast. She is a dietician, certified intuitive eating counselor, and co-founder of Feeding Littles. She is your gal to not only help teach you what and how to approach feeding your kids, but also learn and model a healthy relationship with food and your body! We talk about body image, incredible tips for feeding your kids, and what to do if you feel like you’ve already “ruined” your kids by what you’ve said or modeled for them.
