Do you have kids? Are you unsure on what you should feed them? 🧐

I reckon about 90% of the women in our program have one or more kids, so I get questions all the time where women are asking 

‘What should I be feeding my kids? What should I put in their lunchboxes?’ 

In this podcast episode, I talk to the wonderful Emma Sgourakis, The Nutrition Coach, close friend and co-founder of Saturee about what foods to feed your kids and what kind of foods you should be putting in their lunchboxes. 💛

Emma opens up about how she’s managed food with her kids and how it’s constantly changing with them. She says she noticed with her kids how they gravitated toward certain foods, like fruits and even liver until recently.

Emma also doesn’t recommend exposing your children, who have immature and developing digestive tracts, to high cellulose foods. 

This could damage their digestive tracts setting them up for health issues or food intolerances as adults. Instead, she sticks to cheeses, milk, soft fruits, custards, broth, orange juice, chocolate milk, sourdough sandwiches, and other easily digestible foods for her kids.

The major takeaway? It’s about not trying to be perfect. 

The more you force it, the more they don’t want it. It’s all about trying to get the food in and make it as nutritious as you can - even if this might not necessarily make its way into their lunchboxes. You need to look at what they are eating throughout the day to ensure they are getting the most out of their food.
