The Pressure Is Off: Finding Peace and Joy at the Dinner Table
The dinner table has become a battle ground for many parents, undermining both healthy eating and family relationships. Family doctor and feeding specialist Katja Rowell sees many children and parents in her clinic and, because a high number of the children she sees are adopted, she has released a book about addressing the eating challenges of those children. But we all can benefit from Dr. Rowell’s practical wisdom about how we and our children can learn to eat good food and feel good about the food we eat.
Following the interview with Dr. Rowell, stay tuned for a brief Relationships that Nurture feature on how to encourage your child’s curiosity and why that is so important to school success. This special discussion is brought to you by St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development.
What are the battles you have fallen into in trying to get your children to eat well? What have you found to work best with your children to have a peaceful, enjoyable mealtime? Share your thoughts in our REPLY space below!
