Feeding The Family

Welcome to Feeding the Family with Dr. Kristin where we help you navigate the challenges of feeding your family and learn about the role food plays in our health and relationships. Feeding and food relationships can be stressful, confusing, and even destructive. I am a pediatrician and mother of four who has been researching and sharing what I have learned about feeding for over 10 years. In this podcast I’ll share my experience and expertise to help our kids (and ourselves!) with everyday survival tips for real parents. This podcast is about progress, not perfection.
