Your kid doesn’t need a diet: approaching conversations about our child’s weight and health in a productive way

Diet culture is still prominent in 2022 and I welcome Diana Rice, a registered Dietician and owner of Tiny Seed Family Nutrition to discuss how we should approach conversations about weight and health for our kids.

We discuss:

  • Why “eat less and move more” is problematic advice
  • Why dieting is never the answer
  • How we can approach conversations about health with a health mindset versus a weight-goal mindset

To find out more about Diana Rice and Tiny Seed Family Nutrition, visit her website at, where you can find 1:1 coaching sessions, monthly text-based coaching memberships and much more.
