The Best of Why Kids Eat
July 21, 2022
Jill Castle explores eating regulation in children, including the parenting skills around feeding and food responsiveness.
Eating regulation is crucial because there are several reasons why kids eat. One reason is to relieve hunger or thirst. Others relate to self-regulation, such as eating in response to emotions or stress.
One of the most important things parents can do for their children is to teach them how to eat healthfully. But what does that mean, exactly? It turns out that there’s a lot more to it than just choosing healthy foods.
When it comes to feeding our children, we need to consider what we feed them and how we feed them. Research suggests that our feeding style as a parent influences how well our children is able to self-regulate their eating.
In this fourth episode of my summer series, The Best of Summer, let’s explore why kids eat the way they do by looking at the latest scientific updates. We will also recap our relevant and previous episodes.
