Emotional Eating: All You Need to Know – with Francie Healey

Hey everyone! Today’s episode is going to take a step back from our author interviews as we welcome back author and licensed mental health counselor Francie Healey on the Reading with Your Kids Podcast.  Francie have made several appearance on our podcast and shared healthy recipes that will make the kids  feel energised, grounded and well nourished.

In today’s episode, we talk about an important topic of Emotional Eating. Emotional eating is when people use food as a way to deal with feelings instead of to satisfy hunger. Many of us find comfort in food. We even teach our kids to do the same. But comfort eating can become a dangerous habit.

Be sure to tune in to find out how can we teach our kids healthy coping tools – and a healthier relationship with food!
