The Mothership Ep. 3 — How to raise kids to love and accept their own bodies

How do we raise our children to love their bodies and have a healthy relationship with food?

Episode 3 is all about raising kids to love their bodies and have a healthy relationship with food. Body positivity, body neutrality, intuitive eating... as parents, we're busying ourselves learning about these things so we don't pass on the toxic messaging fed to us for years by diet culture. But is it time we all just took and deep breath and let go?
