01:15 Welcome!

02:04 Feeding kids is a full time job

  • What are your meal time rules?

  • Personal chef for the kids?? No…
  • Meal time is meal time, and if the kids don’t eat, tough nuggets.

08:59 Dinner table time

  • Phone vs no phone?
  • Are you a fast eater or slow eater?
  • Time to share conversations with the family
  • Limiting or monitoring the amount of food for kids, do you do this? Sometimes the doctors have given us parents too much to mull over...

13:12 Food as restriction or reward?

19:25 Cook at home vs. ordering out

  • Meal prepping during the weekend to prepare for the week. This makes it quicker and easier. Less work too ;)

45:40 Genius / Fail moments
