In today’s episode, I’m chatting with Kacie Barnes, MCN, RDN, LD all about tips for picky eaters, teaching kids to cultivate a healthy relationship with food, and our current strategy for survival mode during this current time.

We talk about:

– Why all foods have a place in a kid’s diet

– Which supplements she recommends

– Her favorite quick pantry dinner

– How we’re navigating the whole “homeschool and work at home” situation

and so.much.more.
