In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Yami Cazorla-Lancaster about intuitive eating and how to feed your little ones and yourselves. We talk less about what they should be eating and more about our role as parents on how we should be feeding them from a more behavioural and psychological point of view. Then we cover when to set limits and when to hold back and what a play food drawer is. We think you’ll find her advice on when and if to serve dessert quite…well…different.
This episode is perfect for any parent to be or parent in the now. We actually think grandparents will have a lot to learn from this episode as well.
