Helping Your Kids Create a Healthy Relationship with Food

Graciously reposted from www.momdishesitout.com Sugar has definitely received a bad rap this past year. Its poor reputation is very similar to the negative press that fat received in years past. Research is constant and correlations are often made—while causation is rarely determined. As mothers and fathers, how does this affect they way you feed your […]

You’re so beautiful, but…

Originally posted on The Manifest-Station Awhile ago, I was having dinner with just my dad. This is an anomaly in and of itself, but it happened. I remember that night clearly because I cried. Crying is a rarity for me; especially in front of people. I don’t remember what brought on the statement. I don’t […]

Exposing Your Kids to New Foods

Graciously re-posted courtesy of www.momdishesitout.com Small steps in the right direction are sometimes less obvious—such as a lick of sushi. Recently, a mother of my client expressed disappointment due to the fact her child only liked two of the new foods she tried. This is actually amazing.

National Eating Disorder Awareness Week: A Call To ACTION!

Many people do not know that there is such a thing as National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.  On February 23-March 1 is NEDA week.

Is Your Tween Hiding Her Lunch? by Laura Cipullo, RD, CDE, CEDRD

REAL GRANDMOM ASKS: My 11 year old granddaughter is hiding her sandwiches and lunchables that are packed for her lunch in her room; sometimes before she even leaves for school.

I remember looking at burgers—just staring at those odd-looking congealed brown globs. I felt absolutely repulsed! I hated red meat when I was growing up. The smell, the blood-colored juices spilling out, the chewy texture, and ugh—the taste! My dad ate red meat every night and this revolted me even more. Everyone told me that […]

Promoting a Healthy Body Image in Your Home

As a child, I grew up in a very traditional, Italian home where dinner each night was by far the best part of my day. It was a time when my family of five would gather around the table, talking, laughing and sharing delicious fare together. Food was always a part of our lives and […]

Can We Talk? The Truth About Social Media

Can We Talk? The Truth About Social Media      Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest are now a part of my common vocabulary. I’ll admit, I’ve done my fair share of Facebook “creeping”, and I always have my iPhone or iPad with me. But, despite all this, I can honestly say that I don’t let social […]

Neutralizing Your Response to Your Body

     There are thousands of messages in the world that tell us that we are not perfect enough, not pretty enough, not thin enough. Most of these messages originate with the media.
