Podcast #222

Are your kid eating healthy? Most kids don’t and many parents believe that eating healthy is one of the hardest parts of parenting. Even those who only serve healthy foods find their kids gravitating to the sweets tables at birthday parties. What is a mom and dad to do? In this podcast, Felice shares what has worked for her family and talks about battles she has lost. (Can you say chips?)
