TwoSistas and it’s WealthWellnessWednesday with Jill Bucaro! Jill is the creator of the Wellness Riot. Wellness Riot is a wellness and lifestyle consulting business providing a simple and personal approach to optimal health. Today’s topic of conversation revolved around the eating style of children and things to do if your child does not like to eat. Yes; we said that - if your child does not like to eat.
Jill found herself wanting to learn more about her son’s looming disinterest in food. She, as any parent, has done (yes, Carroll-Sue and Janis are guilty of this as well), “if you eat your broccoli, you can have that piece of cake.” We’ve instilled a negative connotation and association with food that our children do not understand.
Through a lot of trial error, Jill explained that there are easy alternative ways to enhance your children’s relationship with food. For instance, if you are making the brussel sprouts, Jill would often engage in conversation such as “oh my gosh, these brussel sprouts were so good! I wish I made some more!” (Just a small snippet of Jill’s point and yes, you have to listen to the podcast to find out more!)
Although many of us have a good relationship with food, some of us have bad experiences with food and the nutrition we supply our body with. Jill recommends staying away fro foods that contain any additive sugars, food dyes and any type of “processed” food. The more you stay closer to the source, the better off you will be!
Jill is in the process of preparing for a TedEx Talk and we can’t wait to learn more about her experience on the TedEx stage as well as having her on again as our future guest - we need to chat a lot more!!
