As a Pediatric Registered Dietitian of 20 years, I have had the great pleasure of working with countless families to find foods that fit their lifestyle. As a mom, I spend countless hours each week trying to figure out what to feed my family, and tend to have a love/hate relationship with food on some days...or, for some weeks.
Every Friday, the broken record of meal planning starts to repeat itself when the fridge is emptied:
What should I make for dinner?
Who will be home on Tuesday to eat?
Let me search up healthy breakfast foods on Instagram
Why is everyone eating out of a Mason Jar?
Do we have enough fresh fruits and veggies for the week?
OMG: Another week of packed lunches!@#%
I don't have all the answers. What I do have is perspective.
I'm here to offer my point of view on good enough food choices and feeding a family:
Science based nutrition + common sense.
My hope is we can raise a generation of competent eaters,
and accept that food is not always going to be perfect.
Let's find the good in food, together.
My hope is we can raise a generation of competent eaters.
