And some advice on how to talk about what different foods do for the body:
Anderson suggests serving one family meal instead of cooking other foods you think your child will eat.
Anderson believes that all food in moderation is perfectly fine. The language we use when talking to our kids about the "bad for us" foods like sugar is important. Reframing the way we talk about sugar can reframe our kids' relationship with it, setting them up for success.
For even more help in the kitchen, Anderson offers a weekly meal plan designed for busy families who want some guidance to provide more variety and introduce new foods.
