Fostering a Positive Food Relationship

When it comes to fostering a positive food relationship, there are several key tips to keep in mind.

First, it’s important to listen to your body’s hunger and fullness cues. This means eating when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re satisfied, rather than eating based on external cues or emotions.

Second, focus on eating a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods from all food groups. This can help ensure you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs to function at its best.

Another tip is to try to practice mindful eating, which involves paying attention to the taste, texture and experience of eating each meal. This can help you savor your food more and prevent overeating.

When it comes to your family, we recommend you involve them in meal planning and preparation. This can help them feel more connected to the food they eat and more willing to try new foods. It’s also important to create a positive and relaxed mealtime environment, free from distractions like screens or stressful conversations.

Lastly, remember that food is meant to be enjoyed, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you indulge in a treat every now and then. It’s all about balance and moderation.
