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).

These days, "healthy eating" seems to mean "eat all of the protein, with some protein powder sprinkled on top." This can be super stressful for parents who worry their kids aren't big fans of meat or beans (or protein powder!). And it really messes with pregnant ladies' heads, as if eating isn't tricky enough during those months.  We cut through the marketing hype and misinformation to share some solid info on how much protein you need...and why this is actually one thing we can relax about.

Don't forget to check out our show notes for links to everything discussed in the episode (like Amy's awesome guide to protein servings for kids!).

And let us know if the protein myth has been messing with your head. Email, or find us on social media (@v_solesmith, @yummytoddlerfood, @yummyfamilyfood).
