Intuitive Eating for Children

Is it possible to teach Intuitive Eating to children? My answer is absolutely!

Nutrition Baby

It’s best to understand that infants all start out as intuitive eaters. They carry that natural, innate ability to know how to eat and will let you know when they are hungry and stop when they are full. Whether you have a new infant at home, chasing after a toddler, or watching your child grow into adolescence, it’s important to embrace that your behaviors and thoughts with food can impact the relationship your child has with food.

"It’s hard to feel confident with the reliability of the information you are given"

In honor of the final week of National Nutrition Month, I’m sharing with you my go-to books and podcasts recommendations that I give my clients. With so much nutrition information available in the media, as well as from friends, family, and co-workers, it’s hard to feel confident with the reliability of the information you are given. Many of these are written or hosted by Registered Dietitians, or other trained nutrition professionals, to provide pertinent, informative, and reliable guidance. I’ll often refer clients to take advantage of these outlets while working together to use as another sense of support and information between our sessions.
