Have you listened to episode #15 of the Lavender and Play podcast? It's a powerful one! A non-diet, body inclusive, fat-positive and trauma informed Registered Dietician, after ten years in her practice, Atheana Brown started noticing deeply entrenched trends in her patients, in the way they viewed their bodies, deep-rooted behaviors and narratives around diet culture.
Intuitive eating is all about listening to what our bodies need. Children do this so well!
Atheana reminds us that the language we use around food is very important, specifically as parents. We are not born hating our bodies, we are not born understanding the hierarchy of food. This episode is pure empowerment!
Atheana shares some very important tips on how to approach food in a household where young children are learning about food and their bodies.
Two of our favourite pieces of advice? Don't put food into a hierarchy of "good" or "bad" categories. And avoid dieting or restricting food around your children.
Thank you, Atheana, for being an important part of our family wellness community!
