Settle in team because this is an episode you're not going to want to miss! This week's 'sode is the first of a 2 part conversation I had with Emiko Davies, an Australian-Japanese food writer, photographer and cook-book author. This is such a wonderful conversation that invites us to imagine another way to feed kids that isn't so caught up in ideas of perfection, or worrying about nutrition or getting everything "right". We touch on things like;
  • Emiko’s experiences of feeding her kids while living in Italy, and how that differs when compared with other countries.
  • Where the pressure to feed kids perfectly comes from and how you can learn to shake that off and relax.
  • How a laid back approach to feeding kids could help picky eater to grow to eat a wider range of foods.

The second part of this conversation will be out on your podcast player of choice next week, so keep you're eyes peeled for that one. As always, if you liked this episode please share the love and hit subscribe to hear part 2 as soon as it's out!

It’s that time of the week again folks! This week, I’m bringing back one of my all-time favourite episodes with one of my equally favourite people, Nicola Haggett. We recorded this episode back in January 2021 alongside the launch of my second book, How To Just Eat It. If you haven't already heard this episode, then I think it will have a lot to offer you. And even if you have already listened, I bet you'll get something new and different listening to it a second or even a third time around. 

Nikki is body liberationist coach and mentor, professionally trained and experienced life coach, certified Body Trust provider and Open Heart Project meditation instructor. Nikki is also a mid-large, fat human whose lived experiences navigating the world as a fat person are a super important part of her work. In this episode, we dive into the world of embodiment, covering things like:

  • How writing our body story can be an act of reclaiming the narratives of our bodies
  • What exactly embodiment is and how we can find examples of it in our lives (babies, kids, cats!)
  • The difference between embodiment and more ‘performative’ or ‘hustle’ self-care
  • How embodiment can help us to feel connected to our bodies without necessarily ‘loving’ or feeling ‘positive’ about them
  • Reclaiming pleasure, appetite, autonomy and more
  • Finding spaces that feel safe to reconnect with your body

As always, if you like this conversation, please share the love - give the episode a like on socials or share it with your family and friends, and hit subscribe to stay up to date on new episodes dropping weekly.

I’m SUPER excited about this week’s episode because I am speaking to the G.O.A.T of the child feeding world, Dr. Katja Rowell. Katja is an author and child feeding specialist with a passion for supporting parents in helping their children to do their best with eating and to relate to their bodies in positive ways. In this episode, we cover topics like;

  • The difference between regular old picky eating and look at some red flags for when kids or families maybe need a little more support with eating
  • How if you feel like there’s a problem and you could do with support and reassurance then that in and of itself is enough of a red flag that you should reach out for help
  • Whether or not it’s helpful to pursue a diagnosis around eating difficulties
  • Problems associated with some more conventional feeding therapies or programmes and why Katja and I prefer to work in a way that is less prescriptive and more responsive
  • Values of responsive feeding therapy and talk about what they look like in action
  • Some of the pitfalls perhaps in teaching kids to listen to their tummies, if our agenda is to get kids to eat less.
  • Felt safety, what that means and how we can foster it at mealtimes.

Ready for more? Because part 2 is here people! 

Last week, I shared the first part of my conversation with Emiko Davies, Australian-Japanese food writer, photographer and cook-book author, so if you missed that then go back and have a listen before you jump into this one. This week I'm bringing you the second part of that conversation. This time, we talked about;

  • Emiko’s experience of parenting a child in a bigger body.
  • Emiko’s experience of having a bigger body as a child.
  • What the science really says about sugar and why we all need to chill out about giving sugar to kids

This was such a great conversation – Emiko is a dream. If you enjoy this episode then please don’t forget to share and keep the conversation going over on our socials!

Hold tight folks, this is a good one! This week, I’m chatting with Molly Forbes, journalist, campaigner, author of Body Happy Kids and founding director of the Body Happy Organisation.

Molly gives loads of practical and pragmatic advice for how you can begin to open up conversations with your school to stomp out diet culture and support positive body esteem. It's such a helpful episode for anyone who has wondered whether or not schools are undoing some of the things that you're doing at home to protect your kids' relationship with food and their bodies. 

Some of the topics we cover include:

  • How influential schools really are when it comes to supporting/disrupting body esteem. 
  • Where diet culture creeps up in schools in areas like school uniform policy.
  • How we can open up conversations with schools about diet culture, and how teachers can get their schools on board with an anti diet culture policy.
  • How you can begin to tackle food policing policies. 
  • National weight measurement programme and why you should opt your kiddo out.

  • Why you can't control your child's body and why you shouldn't want to

HEYO - look who’s back on the pod!

Tally first shared her journey with us back in 2019 {listen to that here}. Since then she’s published two books and completely shaken up the fitness industry, challenging the notoriously weight-centric, aesthetics focussed industry to move in ways that feel joyful and to prioritize rest (and not feel guilty about it!). She also joined us in 2021 to break down the principles of Intuitive Movement {you can listen to that here}.

This episode was recorded back in January as part of a live Q+A we did (before things got weird). I decided to save this episode to share with you on International No Diet Day because it felt like the perfect way to celebrate!

In this episode we cover:

- The difference between exercise and intuitive movement
- How we can approach rest without feeling guilty
- Why I hate the daily mile in schools 
- Ableism in the fitness space
- How to know if movement is motivated by self-care or coming from a place of wanting to control your body and your weight

This is such a fun episode - Tally is a dream. If you enjoy this conversation then please don’t forget to share and keep the conversation going over on our socials!

  • 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

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

This week I'm tackling listener questions with Eliza Khinsoe - a fellow Nutrition Counsellor at London Centre for Intuitive Eating.

Eliza shares a little about how she got into weight-inclusive practice, what her responsibilities are at LCIE and her work on the Pantry Party Pod to support students and new grads in the field. 

The we go deep into YOUR questions. We cover so much in this episode, but some highlights include:

  • When it’s time for gentle nutrition and how you balance nutrition information with intuitive eating
  • How to learn to respect fullness cues
  • What the deal is with mindful eating and challenging where our ideas around mindful eating have come from – i.e. are they informed by diet culture or are you seeing it more as a process of discovery
  • We talk about comfort eating
  • We also discuss why it’s totally normal in the context of diet culture to want to lose weight with intuitive eating and how you can begin to unpack that desire
  • And why Intuitive Eating invites you to put down the pursuit of weight loss

As per, let us know your thoughts on this episode, and if you enjoyed it please drop 5 stars on Apple podcasts!

In this week's episode my guest, Isa Robinson and I are digging into some of the common myths and misconceptions around Intuitive Eating - aka - what the gym bros get wrong. We get into the nuance and subtleties of IE as a practice and discuss why it's so much more than the 'hunger and fullness diet'.

Some of the topics we cover include:

  • Whether Intuitive Eating really means eating ‘junk’ food all day long
  • If Intuitive Eating is a ‘healthy’ way to lose weight
  • If you can still learn to eat intuitively when your hunger cues have been messed up by diets
  • If Intuitive Eating is compatible with a health condition
  • How to get past the fear that you will 'freefall' or 'spiral' with Intuitive Eating

Alix is an advisor on the hit Netflix show 'Sex Education' and is giving us some BTS goss from the show, plus answering some listener questions on sex work and asexuality.

This week on the pod Laura’s teaming up with Jess, Registered Dietitian and clinician here at the London Centre for Intuitive Eating, to tackle some myths that we've seen flying around about intuitive eating. 

In this episode they discuss:

✨ What Intuitive Eating is + what it isn't, including a summary of the principles of IE
✨ Whether you need to be hormonally and biochemically "restored" before working on IE  
✨ Why emotional eating isn't inherently a bad thing + what we can learn from it 
✨ Why the idea that IE = "eating what you want when you want" is trash
✨ How working through IE looks different on everyone and will take different people different amounts of time to make peace with food and their bodies
✨ Why IE is actually health-promoting 
✨ How to spot fake IE versus true IE
