Today we're talking to Catherine Lippe, a Registered Nutritionist who specialises in paediatric and maternal nutrition, about how to raise intuitive eaters. The things we say, how we act, and what we *think* kids should do can all influence how kids relate to food, and sometimes we do or say things with the best of intentions, that can totally backfire. Catherine shares her tips for things to look out for and we share a model for child feeding that helps take the pressure off parents, and helps the kid build a sense of autonomy and independence around food. The goal here is to help kids preserve their innate hunger and fullness cues and have a healthy relationship to food. We also discuss why restriction of certain foods might actually lead to eating MORE of those foods in the long run, and why it might not be the best idea to use creative coercion tactics to get kids to eat their veg! We just scratched the surface of things to talk about related to raising kids who have a happy, healthy relationship to food, so make sure you check out the show notes for more resources.
