Todays Raising Healthy Kids interview is with Laura Morton. Find out her tricks for reducing her toddler’s complaints at mealtime.
Feeding children is a task parents typically take on without any education.
To help parents with this task, each week we’ll interview a different registered dietitian mom.
We’ll hear her families story while learning tips we can apply in our own homes. These moms share what works for them, what doesn’t, the successes AND failures, to help moms like you who have the same goals.
We are all simply trying to raise healthy kids.
Let me introduce Laura Morton, MS, RD, LDN of the website, Mortons Grove. Welcome, Laura!
Tell us about your family and where you live:
What has surprised you the most about feeding kids since becoming a mother?
Tell us about your most challenging moment feeding your children:
How did you solve this problem?
When bringing foods into your home, what factors influence your food choices the most?
In what ways do you encourage healthy eating in your home?
What struggles do you face with your kids while implementing healthy eating in your home?
What is your #1 tip for raising healthy kids and how has this tip worked for your family?
What is your family’s favorite recipe?
Laura adds, “One more life lesson – just because a toddler rejects something 400 times – I swear it doesn’t mean they don’t like it. Try, try again!”
Thanks so much Laura, for sharing your story!
