Drop your little ones favorite sweet! Sweets have been a hot topic lately. I find parents get sooo stressed out about them! I have many parents in my DMs say “I just feel like my little one is obsessed with sweets, but I don’t want to be too restrictive, how do I handle that?” First, let me say, there’s so much fear mongering around sweet foods! I get it, we don’t want that to be ALL our little one eats, because we know that isn’t supportive of their overall wellness.However, YOU as the parent get to decide when you serve them. That will look different for every family and every family's culture/traditions.I recommend doing what you can to neutralize these foods, so your little one grows up being able to listen to their hunger/fullness cues around them.Using descriptive language when presenting sweets, helps take them off a pedestal:-”This is chocolate, it tastes sweet”-”This is a cookie, it is soft and chewy” Sometimes depending on the situation, YOU also get to decide if there’s enough for more or not. Every family is different, and serving sweets doesn’t have to be stressful.I help parents navigate having a plan for serving sweets that works for their family, and supports their little one to learn balance. If you are wanting to feel confident in serving a variety of foods to your little one so they can grow up to have a positive food relationship, apply to work with me.
