Parenting Life Hacks
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.
