Comfort Food

The podcast about the joys (and meltdowns!) of feeding our families and ourselves.

Every week we examine how diet culture, body image issues and our own hectic lives get in the way of putting a dinner on the table that we can all feel good about. And we offer practical, road-tested tips to help you make peace with your own eating (or your kid's picky eating!) and find more joy in your family's food life.

Hosted by best friends and writers Amy Palanjian (creator of the popular blog Yummy Toddler Food) and Virginia Sole-Smith (author of The Eating Instinct).

If you’re like most households, there is one person (and we’re guessing it’s you!) who notices when we run out of milk, thinks ahead to restock the kids’ favorite cereal, and remembers to pull chicken out of the freezer in time to defrost for dinner. We know this mental load work can really pile up — so today we’re tackling your big questions about how to broach the topic with your partner and sharing our best tips and hacks to lessen your load. 

And, because nobody can stay on top of the mental load when we’re exhausted, Amy interviews Becca from Little Z’s Sleep Solutions for her best tips on getting your kids to sleep.
