We’re all born intuitive eaters! Babies know when they’re hungry, and they stop eating when they are full. We don’t “grow out” of being intuitive eaters, but many of us lose touch with our intuitive eating skills. Don’t despair! We can relearn intuitive eating at any point in our lives!
Our job as parents is to decide when and where to provide food. Our children decide which foods we offer to eat, and how much to eat.
Parents should provide regular meals and snacks, at a family table if possible. Offer a variety of nutritious and satisfying foods. The rest is up to your child! They may choose to eat all, none, some, or go back for seconds.
Trust your child to eat as much as their body needs, and trust that their body will grow in a way that is right for them!
