Feeding Families

Feeding Families

Feeding a family is tough! How do you get kids to eat better? What if people challenge your food choices? How do you work within a budget? Food affects all aspects of our children's health but life is busy, budgets are tight, and kids can be picky and frustrating around food. Our Feeding Families podcast breaks down what every parent needs to know about nourishing their kids for strong, resilient health. Host Jess Sherman is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, board certified in Practical Holistic Nutrition who helps parents use food to improve mood, behaviour, and learning in their kids. She is the author of Raising Resilience: take the stress out of feeding your family and love your life, a former teacher, and mom of three. Jess and her guests will help you understand your child's nutritional needs and bring you inspiring food stories to help you overcome real-life food-related challenges. You'll gain clarity, new ideas, and practical strategies from this podcast, so you can nourish your kids and families, strengthen their physical and mental health, and feel confident around your food decisions.
