Listen On

Studies show that a child’s future eating habits are mostly dictated by the example they are surrounded by when they are young. That really puts some pressure on us parents, huh? If you are somebody who has been wanting to shift into a healthier lifestyle, get back on track after the holiday season, or just finds yourself too busy to make healthy meals every night, this is the episode for you. I’m joined by Tameeko Clark, a nutritionist and wellness coach that has realistic, practical tips and habits for us to consider when we think about our eating habits. Whether you are a mom or not (some of my unhealthy habits developed when I first began college…), this episode is one you shouldn’t miss. We tackle not just the what, but the how as well.
