Don't Salt My Game | With Laura Thomas, PhD

Join Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas, PhD for conversations with game changers. Laura talks to people in wellness, foodies, bloggers, entrepreneurs from cool brands, creatives, nutritionists, doctors, body positivity people, mindfulness experts, and anyone else who is shaking up the wellness world, to find out how they stay on top of their game – and to help you do you, but better. It’s not all handstands and courgetti though - she and her guests aren’t afraid to dig deep into the darker side of wellness and WILL call BS on weird, faddy trends, that don’t have any legitimacy or scientific merit. Fresh pods every Friday. #dontsaltmygame

Kristen is back for round 2 this week! Kristen joined me a couple weeks back to talk about all things child feeding (if you haven’t checked it out yet, you can listen here!). This time round, we’re diving into some of the challenges listeners are facing while feeding your kids and answering questions you submitted about your specific struggle. We’re going to cover things like;

  • What to do if your breastfed toddler is a boob fiend
  • Child led ways to support older kids who are quite particular about what they like and don't like, and are maybe struggling to expand the variety of foods that they're eating
  • How diet culture shows up at the table
  • What to do when a kid starts dropping food or goes through a food jag
  • What if kids aren't interested in foods
  • How you can support a picky or fussy eater

I hope you’re buckled in because this one’s a doozy! Today I’m joined by Dr. Martha Deiros Collado, a clinical psychologist with expertise in parenting, child development and paediatric health. In this conversation, we explore how to support kids in building healthy body esteem and preserving a positive experience of embodiment. Some of the topics we cover in this episode include;

  • The necessity of bringing an intersectional lens to conversations about body esteem
  • Why promoting body esteem is about so much more than teaching kids they look good 
  • We cover BIG ideas like agency, autonomy, consent and honouring differences in identity (but don’t sweat - Martha makes these ideas super accessible)
  • We touch on how letting kids have autonomy around food is so critical (and why you should let them blow their own nose!)
  • And lastly, we name some of the power structures and systems of oppression that make us feel as though our bodies are not good enough in the first place
