Welcome to Comfort Food: The podcast about the joys (and meltdowns!) of feeding our families and ourselves. In Episode 1, we tackle a giant issue: How can we stop obsessing about what we eat? We discuss why diet culture, picky eating kids, and perfection pressure leave most of us overly fixated on every bite our kids eat... and every bite we think we shouldn't be eating. And we offer real-life strategies for relaxing a bit to help reduce mealtime drama and increase enjoyment — like the one simple thing you can do today, to feel better about how you eat.
You'll also get to know your hosts: Amy Palanjian, creator of the blog Yummy Toddler Food and Virginia Sole-Smith, author of The Eating Instinct: Food Culture, Body Image and Guilt in America.
