This week we are deconstructing our episode from last week with Lily Nichols.  If you haven’t listened to it, go back and download Episode 63.  It’s chock full of real-life advice for incorporating real food into your family’s diet.  This week we will be talking about our highs/lows, our own angst with feeding our children, and what we’ve done to *try* to have a less stressful eating experience in our households.

Listen as Liz & Kate share: 

  • High: Enduring a ¾ mile walk home with 3 kids and a dog.
  • Low: Grappling with a diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes.
  • Working through the emotions of Gestational Diabetes.
  • Parenthood: making decisions for someone who isn’t able to, yet.
  • What has worked for us with picky eaters in our houses.
  • How we get our busy children to sit still for family dinners.
  • Meal Planning: does it work for us?
