TNC 117: How to Cultivate the Eating Behaviors You Want to See

8/27/2020
One show that a lot of my listeners enjoyed was my episode with Catherine Pearlman, author of the book, Ignore it! I thought that perhaps your child’s behaviors might be annoying you right about now… or maybe you could use a pep talk, so I’m re-sharing this episode. In this ep, Catherine Pearlman walks us through her method for creating good behaviors in our kids – the behaviors we want to see. She explains how every kid acts out sometimes, which can make it even more frustrating than usual...

TNC 116: Emotional Eating in Kids

8/13/2020
There’s no denying that how we feel (sad, mad, or glad for example) may be tied to what we choose to eat and how we eat it. One of my personal favorite episodes this past year or so has been the topic of emotional eating. I had Melanie Smith, the Training Director of the Renfrew Center specializing in eating disorders, on the podcast to discuss the importance of teaching emotional regulation in children and how it relates to food and eating. Melanie said, "Emotional regulation is the...

TNC 115: How Nutrition Helps Brain Development in Early Childhood

7/30/2020
I nerd out on brain development. All the changes that happen in the brain throughout childhood are simply amazing. Brain development has been a fascination of mine for quite some time. And not just what goes on in the infancy years. Quite a bit goes on throughout childhood and the teen years too. And, as a 50-something year old, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just slightly interested in what happens to the brain as we age. I’ve had two guest experts come on the podcast to talk about...

TNC 114: When Grandparents Feed Your Child Sweets & Treats

7/16/2020
When other relatives take care of your kids, your food choices for them and feeding routines can swerve off track. One of the questions I get from parents is around grandparents feeding their grandkids. Parents complain or are distressed by their own parents or in-laws feeding their kids unhealthy food. Grandparents may give their grandchildren too many sweets. Or let them off the hook at mealtime and give them what they really want to eat, like pizza or chicken nuggets. Or, perhaps they...

TNC 113: How to Uphold Food Boundaries (without Being Mean)

7/2/2020
What do you say to your child when he refuses to eat? When he throws a tantrum because what you served for his meal isn’t what he wants to eat? Or, what do you say when your child keeps asking for more food? In my work over the years with parents, the question of what to say, or how to respond, comes up a lot. Parents don’t want to be the NO GUY or GAL all the time. I get it. I don’t want to say no all the time either. So, how can you say no without saying that word? AND, how can you do...

TNC 112: How to Help Kids Eat Better

6/18/2020
The kids are home for summer and eating and feeding naturally intensifies. That structure associated with school is looser, and food options are influenced by heat, outdoor activities and yes, the sweet tooth. My bet is you’ll have to find a way to keep structure, boundaries and reasonable choices in place. That’s why I’m sharing this episode again – 5 feeding rules to help your child eat better. Some of these are intuitive, some not so much. All of them could be helpful to you. If you’ve...
