Raising Intuitive Eaters

At LCIE we’re on a mission to help parents build competent eaters who can navigate a complicated food environment without losing their shit around food as soon as they fly the nest.

We know that there is an overwhelming amount of information for parents to sift through when it comes to nutrition and feeding; it’s often conflicting and confusing and based of food fear and the pathologisation of body weight. This can give the impression that there’s a ‘right’ and a ‘wrong’ way of feeding kids, and if we don’t live up to expectations then we end up feeling guilty and worried that we’re messing up our kids’ health. That’s why we’ve developed ‘Raising Intuitive Eaters’; an online course that cuts through the BS and give you the tools to raise kids who have a healthy relationship with food and their body and who enjoy a wide variety of different foods.

Being very restrictive can cause children to eat in the absence of hunger, make them more likely to sneak or steal food, and mean that they are more likely to use food to sooth their emotions.

And putting pressure on kids to clear their plate or eat their greens can actually increase the likelihood that they will become fussy eaters which makes mealtimes more stressful for the whole family.

Parental encouragement for weight loss is associated with poorer wellbeing

Parental weight criticism is associated with dysfunctional eating in girls.

40% of parents have encouraged their children to diet.

Parents engage in weight talk with children as young as 2.
