You know how nobody has ever eaten exactly one half cup of ice cream and felt satisfied in their life? Yeah. That. Diet culture and government guidelines are full of rules about the so-called right amount to eat of every food.... but they rarely match up with how much we — and our kids! — actually need to eat. So is portion control ever useful? And if not, what should you do instead? We talk about how to encourage kids to listen to their bodies, and offer tips for how mamas can ditch the guilt and practice intuitive eating as well.
Don't forget to visit this episode's show notes page for all the links and resources discussed here — including a breakdown of how much your kiddo really needs to eat in a day.
