Steph interviews Austin McGuffie (a.k.a Metabolism Mentor), about self-directed nutrition for kids. Austin is passionate about distilling confusing nutrition topics into easy-to-understand pieces of content that the general public and kids can understand. He believes that providing education leads to autonomy around food and helps kids make better choices. In the episode, they discuss how to approach nutrition education with kids in a way that balances freedom and oversight. They share their own struggles with feeding their littles, and how they navigate situations like birthday parties and meals/snacks at school. You’ll learn strategies for cultivating self-directed eaters no matter where you’re starting.
