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).

There’s a lot of pressure to make family dinners work—and a lot of guilt-inducing headlines preaching that we can avoid everything from drug abuse to failing grades by making them a priority. But what if we can make them work due to schedules or early bedtimes? Or when we just want to share a grown up meal and conversation with our partner at the end of the day? Are we dooming our kids? (Hint: No!)
