"pediatric dietitian" Discussed on Baby-Led Weaning Made Easy
"Interviewing. A MOM named Meg. Name is Mega Mason. She's outside of Chicago. She's a first time. Mom with a daughter Camila, whose had a wide variety of food allergies, some intolerance stuff happening, but meg has just recently completed a milk or dairy ladder. Now some of you guys might be familiar with a milk ladder or a dairy latter, but basically her daughter's intolerant to dairy. Dairy products was starting at seven weeks of age. She's GonNa. Tell us her story, but she had to start cutting dairy and soy out of her breast milk, because was causing gut problems in still problems for her baby at seven weeks of age now the baby in the meantime develops mother food, allergies food allergy in the family, but apart from that she was never actually diagnosed with a milk allergy, so she had cow's milk protein intolerance, and so meg did. Did some research, and she started looking into this idea of using dairy ladder or a milk ladder to slowly reintroduce milk foods into meal as diet, and then mom, who still breastfeeding stays one step behind, and she's start to slowly reintroduce those foods as well kind of in an attempt to keep her breast milk clean, so meg again. She's a mom located outside of Chicago. She's self educated, but I love having the stories of real life. Parents who are going. Going through some of the same stuff that you guys might be and I hear from my audience all the time that many of you are advised to remove or stay away from dairy and soy that it doesn't go through your breast milk, and possibly be problematic for your baby, but sometimes parents think gosh this as a lifelong thing. My Baby's never gonna be able to eat dairy foods, and so in megs case because her daughter did not have A. A severe milk allergy instead she had intolerance. She was cleared to start this milk ladder to then be reintroducing food, so she's going to tell you guys her story. I do just want to say at the outset here. Though the milk ladder can only be used by infants and children who have a mild to moderate cows milk allergy. This is what we call a non I G E mediated milk allergy. This is not suitable for babies who have a milk. Milk allergy that results in severe or immediate type allergic reaction, so it's not for those that have an I g e mediated milk allergy a medical share. She did the same thing, but it's recommended. You need to talk to your own pediatrician. Who May in turn refer you to an allergist? You may be working with a pediatric Dietitian to help you through this. Meg mentioned that it was actually her lactation consultant. Who advised her to talk to her pediatrician? Pediatrician because what she was seeing in the stool, even as early as seven weeks of age was concerning I'm GonNa let meg tell her story about the milk ladder, all of the resources that she's going to mention in the interview I will link up for you in the show notes for this episode, so if you go to be L.

"Managing. A dairy allergy and how frustrating she found when people often confuse the two. Sometimes, it was parents or friends, or when she go out into a cafe and restaurant, and of course all the mets that comes with. Avoiding, say dairy and choosing to include so if you if you'd like to know a little bit more about a parent's perspective, do tune back into that second episode. On the PODCAST and next week I will have another one of my lovely clients. Talk to you about her experience. Of you know managing or using dairy free diet manage a child with a delayed casper protein allergy, but in terms of answering a question about Parmesan. Guess one of the first obvious things that most people might say, we avoid having partisan for babies because it's very high in salt now once this may be true as babies get a little bit older and if you are using Palmerston. In cooking say just a top up. Say partner bags and things like that. If you're using a pinch of the Great Commisson, that's absolutely fine I'm usually. Very very small quantities time-to-time is absolutely fine. However if your baby has a dairy allergy whether it's in mediated or delayed, and you've been asked, or you've been prescribed to follow a dairy, free diets that a cow's milk protein died. Then something like palm is than even if it's been aged for over thirty six months or forty five months wouldn't be suitable, because although the aging process will mean, there's very very little lactose left. In the final cheese, so remember if your child has lactose intolerance then palm isn't would be absolutely fun to us because this virtually very little. Very little does should I. Say in the final Commisson. How ever if your child has a dairy allergy? Even with the aging process, the final cheese will have cosmo protein, so it wouldn't be suitable on the died unless you're working with your pediatric Dietitian as part of a reintroduction plan, so there are things like the car smoke ladders. Reintroduction milk ladders that you could use and follow, and you Dietitian will guide you on the exact amount to us when you're following the milk ladders to try and reintroduce re-challenge children to find out if they can tolerate cosmo protein, but at the very early stages when your baby or child has been diagnosed with a cosmopolitan allergy, palm is an unfortunately, although has very little lactose in it, and would be suitable on electors free died. It won't be suitable on a dairy free time, and yes, in terms of the salt, and this has certainly being discussed over on my instagram page at UK kids nutrition. I have a post called. Can I give my baby powers on a milk free diet? It may have you know quite a bit of salt because cheeses do have at assault I, think you can think about the amount that babies or young children, would you? You'd probably only use a pinch in the final product in which case that's absolutely fine from Saul perse, but But on a dairy free died. You won't be able to include any cheese, so I hope that helps and as always..

"And I can't even feed my child so that was come up for sure but it's like hello imposter syndrome. Yeah and it was It was but it wasn't only that it was like. Oh my God. This is my child and this is her brain and her body. And I'm really like screwing things up. Of course I put all the blame on me but As it turns out she is. You know she's twenty three now. She's perfectly fine and healthy She had a very different personality and approach to food. And I had to learn her temperament her personality and I had to work with that as opposed to following some guideline from books that I learned from and so that has you know at a minimum taught me this great intuition around feeding children and I bring that intuition to the parents that I work with as well you have to know your child and A lot of times parents will say. Is it bad if I make them take a bite? You need to know your child. How does your child interpret this? Do they interpret it as pressure or do they Balk and put their feet down resist or are they compliant music going and take as many bites as you tell me thank you. I mean it's just it's just so I learned a lot from that and I had my humble pie. I ate my humble pie but I guess bigger than that. I started to really realized that boy. Oh boy if I had seven years of training and education and experience in my field and I struggled what the heck is this like for parents who have no education no training and no experience with raising and feeding children. I mean they're up against a lot and so I have great compassion for parents who are muddling through this whole nutrition and feeding thing. Because I don't believe it's easy. It wasn't easy for me. It's never you know it's been I'm I'm I'm educated. It's been such a great anchor to raising my own four children and I think I've done a good job of that but at the same time I recognize. It's a lot of work and I put a lot of effort into it and As a result I've I've created children that I think are capable independent. Well adjusted kids when it comes to food and eating and their bodies. And that's all I really wanted. I wanted them to be able to to to grow up and take care of themselves and take care of themselves. Well and I think I've done that But I RECOGNIZE. I put a lot of time and effort into that I made. It's a priority for me and I made it a priority and I did it with complete sensitivity to the fact that I am Dietitian and it would be so easy for me to fall into the trap of eat clean food and don't eat that and let me into everything about nutrition. I didn't do any of that. I don't think I didn't tell you something different but I was really Careful about how I talked about food and about how I interacted with them around food. Because I'm a Dietitian that's a loaded. It's a loaded topic right there and and it must it must give you such great context and empathy and a sense of what not just what the individual needs about what we need as a community a society as well. Yeah I think so. Adopt ME TREMENDOUSLY I. I don't think I would be as effective it what I do now if I hadn't face early challenge and if I hadn't you know being of four children born in five years I mean talk about chaos at there was chaos at the table but that you know for whatever reason divine intervention whatever. That's my reality. I'm a pediatric Dietitian. Had four kids and I had my challenges to and that's my story and I think I think it has made me a better clinician but I also think it helps me help parents in a in a more sensitive tuned in way We'll Jill thank you so much for coming on and sharing your experience and also your vision for what's possible because you know this podcast is about connecting to your inner wisdom and and having an impact.

"When you're when you're speaking and working with other professionals what is the what's the change that you would like to see are? What are some of the changes that you would like to see in our North American Look at food and nutrition and children. Where do you think where were were missing the boat as a as a whole yeah? So that's a really good question so I I do a lot of speaking on sort of the modern approach to childhood nutrition. I do workshops. Full Day half day workshops keynotes and the end the you the point of that whole thing in my whole goal for my audience. No matter how I'm delivering this topic it's to have them have a mindset. Shift away from its just about food to this broader scope in view of child nutrition. Yes it's partly about food but it's also about feeding and it's also about child development and we need those three areas to come together for parents to be truly successful and so in my speaking to other professionals. I'm teaching them these three components. I'm showing them. You know all the basics about food and nutrients depending on whatever age group. I'm talking about but I'm teaching them about feeding feeding styles feeding practices how to setup structure how to say no how close the kitchen how to set boundaries and limits and then. I'M TEACHING THEM ABOUT DEVELOPMENT. Which could be you know what to expect during Toddler Hood and Childhood and teenager but what to capitalize on. What do you need to focus on? What the teenager. You're focusing on guiding and governing. Your hands free. You're sixteen. I don't have to do anything anymore. No your role is to guide and govern With with the Toddler it's to embrace their desire for independence. How can you change what you do in the home to to Encourage their autonomy in their independence. So when I go out and speak. I'm teaching professionals. My goal is for them to change the way they practice for them to not bring people into their offices and just talk about a meal plan to actually take this broader definition of child nutrition and bring into their own practice to to triage patients using the system of what how and why because sometimes kids will come in and they need food nutrient focus interventions but other times kids. Come in and it's a developmental thing. Where the parent isn't supporting their development or it's a feeding thing so. I want I want clinicians to triage using my sort of the what the what the. Why and the how of feeding. I want them to to triage using those three different areas. So they can actually be better and more effective in a practicing. Do you ever get to have the parents? I guess we already covered this so I don't want to loop back around at might do do an at it. But I'm thinking about parents and their ability to to navigate this and and like are you teaching the parents to look at their child in the same way yes and no yes in no what I do with. The parents is try to make it as simple and easy as possible. My goal for the families that work with me is they walk down there like I got this no problem. I can do this one-two-three no problem practices three things or two things for the next two weeks when I come back. We're going to work on these next I. I want them to walk out of my office. Feeling like I've got this Is a lot easier than I thought it was GonNa be in that category? I'm hearing it so empowered. Oh yeah like giving the power back around food and all the crawler benefits. Yes and the you can do this. You have all the skills if you don't have the skills I'm gonNA teach you the skills but you're going to be able to do this like you're going to be the nutritionist. In your home you need me right now but eventually you're not gonNA need me. You're going you're going to be able to rock this yourself. That's huge that's huge What if you to look at your own either your leadership. On what changes would you like to see happen? Say in your American and we have different health situations in terms of healthcare and wellness. But what would you? I'm not sure the right scope because these are systemic changes. I'm going to ask you about what would you like to see? Change in the next five ten twenty years. Yeah so I've thought a lot about this because as I am coming into my thirtieth year and my children are all grown and flown. I had this opportunity to make big impact beyond just my little office in my website and all that stuff. I really you know what I would really like to see over the next five to ten years. Is You know in America. We have all these health care insurance companies and we have Medicare we have Medicaid. I would really like to see. Insurance companies include nutrition education for parents as part of their package. I would really like to see them. You know offer. New parents the basics of getting started with feeding the baby in the first year of life. I would really like to see pediatrician offices have a pediatric. Dietitian or nutritionist. In the office that can be there to help families in the moment. I would also like to see pediatrician offices offering education. You know on the little. Tv monitors in the waiting room and sending family's home with quality instructions. Not just a piece of paper but show or a series of educational materials where parents can learn on their own time. I would also like to see companies and corporations offering this kind of education to their employees. You know parents that are working in corporate the corporate world. They're working parents. Their challenges are different. They don't have the time to go see a Dietitian or nutritionist. Their child is having a problem. These educational opportunities need to be available within that corporation and so I would like to see corporate America supporting parents. Much more on family nutrition and all the childhood nutrition things that they could be doing for family just to help them make their lives easier You'll may keep going zero. But you know I also have to tell you so. I am tingling from head to toe listening to you and so I'm going to share that. That is usually my lightning rod for intuition like as far as like go go go go go. Yes yes yes so at. It's also painting painting a vision of more compassionate and Yeah I'm more compassionate. Look at the employee as the whole person and I think I think things are better there than they used to be but it's also bring again the the family yeah honoring the role of parent. It's nice to say. Oh I have all these people working for me. They're parents but are you really supporting them? Like are you really honoring there? They've got a job when they go home and they've got a job before they come to work. Are you helping them do those jobs to? I would challenge companies and organizations to do a better job of that Because when they do they're going to have employees who are more committed to them who have children that are sick and out of the office You know supporting supporting women who emp and fathers who just had their first child. We could do more with that And I think I think there needs to be more responsibility in food marketing to children and I really do and then there needs to be I would encourage push Companies that are developing products to make meaningful products for children that are good products and wholesome products for children. Then then he can market the heck out of him. I don't care but make sure they're meaningful and good for kids. We have your work cut out for you. I do sometimes i. I literally Bow Laura ideas and I'm like how in the hell am I gonNa get this stuff done? I have no idea but I have decided that. I can't keep this stuff inside. May I have to keep talking about it because once I talk about it it becomes more real and it becomes more? I don't know it just becomes more common in my brain and something I can talk about and I just hope and pray that if I talk about it more than maybe somebody will hear it and somebody will say. Let's do this. You are right. Let's do it so listeners. Shirring thus and that I think is some of the power of the of being able to connect an end. Speak in forums like this where you just don't know who's GonNa hear. Why but it. Also establishes like you say a practice of yourself articulating it out into the world instead of keeping it all up here or or here. Yeah and I can I. I can relate to that from my own point of view because there's really uncomfortable things that that are that. Are there for me to address in my own industry. Add if I within the self help industry and what I've observed especially of late is that energy comes around when you least expect at. Yeah it's not linear as much as we would like it to be. That's much more like an instant result but I think people are waking up to certain things. Yeah I've learned the same thing and just personally like I said. That seed was planted twenty three years ago when I had my first child and I kept that close to my heart for a long time And you know it wasn't it wasn't really. I guess the process of letting it out was when I did the tax talk and I told my story with my first child and what a challenge it was to feed her and You know that's when a lot of this started coming out and I was like you know why I don't need to keep this stuff in any more. I might not be the person that's able to actually materialized everything but it's an idea out there that I think should be out in the world should be said and I I encourage I think as I get older and I'm in this field for longer and longer get more fearless. That's not to say I don't have fears. That's not to say I don't want to take on some big food corporation and go to town with them head to head. I don't want that conflict in my life. I don't want that controversy however I am getting more fearless in putting out there. The things that I think are wrong. when it comes to child nutrition and the lack of support the parents get which is unfair. And I'm just one person I can't do it all myself but if there are listeners out there that that are working in this industry I'm sure this resonates with them. Because if you're working in it you see every day so let's let's end on a story okay. Lots of times the stories. Come at the beginning by. Let's end on the story of of Gweat. It was like for you when you because you went into this field. I am I correct in thinking. You went into the field before the challenge occurred. Is that correct? Yes it is. Yeah okay so so there you were. You had your very own challenge. Yeah yeah so I had my first child. I had been a pediatric Dietitian for seven years already and I had worked at two very famous hospitals in pediatric nutrition. I was at the top of my game basically and so when I got pregnant with my first child I was like oh feeding nutrition is going to be so. Dang easy at got this. We don't have to worry about this. We need to worry about sleeping habits potty training. I have no clue about those but feeding her I got it. It didn't turn out to be very easy. She was a smaller child. And not very interested in eating very My system and my you know three meals three snacks broader did everything I knew was right to do But at a year she was underway and by eighteen months Nemec and it was all food and feeding and I was following the whole you know balanced meals and when. She says she has done. Take her out I. I wasn't forcing her to eat or anything like that and I ran into troubles and so I. It was a very humbling upsetting time because there was a lot of shame around the fact that here. I am a expert in pediatric nutrition..

"Welcome to free your Inner Guru Gel such a pleasure to have you here. Thank you for having me. Laura a pleasure to be here so I would love to frame up everything. We're GONNA talk today with a little bit about your story in your career. How you came to be a Dietitian and why you chose pediatrics. And then we'll get into you know be conversation Health and impact on on really anything as far as leadership and and just have that bigger conversation together so we get to know you take us back so well originally. I thought I was going to be a doctor. And so I went the track of at university studying pre-med and unfortunately I was a victim of the weed-out process when I took organic chemistry. My brain is very challenged with maps and geography and organic. Chemistry really is like geometrical blueprints and systems and things so I I didn't fail but I didn't do well enough to feel like I could move on to medical school so I took a different I pivoted basically and I didn't know what I wanted to do. My Dad said trial. These different things out try nutrition so I took a nutrition. WanNa one class and really just I did very well in it and It really just connected with my brain. It was enough science and enough Just all the things I was looking for biology physiology anatomy. It was all those great things. So I Did my nutrition major and back way back then twenty eight years ago. You had to do an internship and today it's a little bit different. You still do an internship but there's a lot of different pathways to becoming a registered Dietitian. Did my internship Boston in Boston. At mass general did a pediatric rotation for two weeks. And basically during your internship you're rotating through all these different populations cardiovascular patients cancer patients and you get to do two weeks on a pediatric floor which I fell in love day one. I was scared at my pants. Because these these people were so little and so vulnerable and so so sick I was so afraid I was going to hurt them but I also I love children. I have four of my own. I spent my younger years babysitting and working with kids. All the time. So it was a natural fit challenging professionally medically nutritionally scientifically challenging So Fed all of those sort of needs that I had and so I started down the path of pediatric nutrition. I was fortunate when I ended my internship. Mass general had a position open in that area. So they offered it to me. I took it and there. I started over the US. It's it's evolved over the years from you know working in hospitals with very sick children as clinical Dietitian to being a stay at home fulltime mom for nine years to then opening my own business starting with the private practice and then sort of branching out into all kinds of different avenues. Blogging podcasting authorship. Speaking all kinds of things. And what is the? What is the change that you seek to make through your work so I oftentimes? I think about this a lot because when I first started I I had a very strong passion for children and helping parents do a great job of feeding their children but over time. I've realized that I have a purpose in that. There's there's a reason I'm on this planet in that is to help parents The byproduct is that children get the best nutrition and the best relationship around food as a result of that but my purpose is to help parents do better at feeding nourishing their children and then secondarily have discovered over the last five or so years that My purpose is also to help other on nutrition professionals in my field Get started in their businesses see their businesses as a bigger opportunity for impact than just working wind with one person at a time so important. What was it that that made the shift? You from from being motivated to to help the kids to help or support the parents. I think the shift initially started. The seed was planted for the shift. When I had my first baby and I remember my husband and I we went through this llamas class. We spent like twelve weeks two or three hours a week. Learning how to breathe and anticipate all the different steps of birthing a baby and then we went and had our baby and it was a fifteen hour. Delivery was a little traumatic to add but We got through it. I was prepared based on this Lamar's class and I remember saying to my husband. She if we gave half this time to parents to educate them around feeding their babies and their toddlers and their kid you know their kids in their teens. Think about what a difference that would make. That was a comment. I made to my husband twenty three years ago. It wasn't until probably six or seven years ago that I realized that this actually is a huge problem in our country. The fact that we don't prepare parents for nourishing their children the fact that we don't do a very good job of supporting them throughout childhood is really. I believe a big reason why we have so many health problems in children that are related to nutrition today. Things like child obesity and picky eating and food allergies. They're all tied in some way shape or form to the lack of education that parents get in the lack of support. You only time parents get support for nutrition is if they have a problem by problem. Are You my mind I? I didn't raise any young children but I taught school. That was my first career so I had kids in the classroom and and I had quite a scope of Working in wealthier neighborhoods versus neighborhood. Stout were less economically viable. And so you would see definite differences in the children's Appearances and and by that I mean like their their skin tone in their energy levels and so forth. So I'm thinking of that but I'm also I guess I'm framing that up as potentially behavioral issues as at what other issues were coming out dot. Got Your attention in that way. I think you know from anywhere from like the day to day struggles that parents have with trying to get their kids to eat what they make those basic struggles That happened at the table. Please take another bite if you do. I'll give you dessert If you don't finish your plate you have to sit at the table until you do or you're going to get that food. The next morning those basics struggles are happening every single day across America and as a result our children many times. Our children are growing up with a distorted dysfunctional relationship with food. They might not like coming to the table. They might favor sweets over vegetables because they've been bribed so many times over the years but but that is a basic and then blowing that out and looking at you know one in. Three children are overweight or obese in our country. That's food problem but it's also feeding problem. It's an education problem as well as an economic problem. And so you know Adhd behavioral issues in the classroom in part related to nutrition Perhaps lack of certain nutrients early on inadequate eating during school. No breakfast lack of appetite for lunch. I mean if you've been a teacher you've seen all of this even iron deficiency anemia even Just kids who are Underweight not growing. Well there's just a whole gamut and I'm not saying that education. A lack of education of parents is the reason for all of these things but it certainly plays a role and I believe that if parents were better supported early on a lot of these things could be avoided or corrected before they got to difficult for families to turn them around. So what would be a red flag for somebody Listening to you know that there would be solutions that they need to to look at because it sounds it. Sounds like it would be very disempowering and to not feel like you knew what you were doing when it came to feeding your kids and then I'm actually going back to. I don't have A. I've never had my own but I have stepson. Who was fulltime with me as a teenager and so he came into my life and his dad obviously came into my life and it was. I was not just beating me and my dog I was like I was feeding three and that was a lot. And there's a lot young. I think what though it was? It wasn't childhood. Nutrition Sara Lee. But still. It's like where's the guidebook exactly? Where's the guidebook? Where's the guide? I consider myself a guide by how many parents know that somebody like me is out there. They go to their pediatrician. And their pediatrician. Might say yes. We have a problem. I'm going to send you to a pediatric Dietitian. But many many times a pediatrician says don't worry about it. You'll get through this. And yes. It can be very frightening concerning and disempowering for parents to know in their heart that they're struggling with an issue around food and nutrition and feeding with their child and not knowing where to find help. And oftentimes you know the Internet. The web world complicates this even further. Sometimes because then we go out in the in the Internet and we look for solutions and answers. And everybody's a nutrition expert if you eat. You're an expert at least on yourself. You are but there are a lot of people out there that that are passing along potentially potentially information. That really is geared towards adults. And it's applied to kids and kids are very special population. They're growing their needs. Are Changing all the time And Teens yes. I consider as you know fitting under that umbrella of child nutrition because there is an enormous amount of growth that's happening during the adolescent years and nutrient needs are shooting up very high so our calorie needs and protein. All these different elements that that they need to support that growth and yet at the same time they have all this freedom and independence in their making choices for themselves in their. They do need a guide. They need a knowledgeable parent to help them navigate the world of food because otherwise they're going to be at the drive thru fast food restaurant on the daily if they have their driver's license and many parents aren't comfortable with that. They know they don't want their child eating that way but they don't know how to approach it manage it. It sounds to me like it's also an I think because I have that framework of the teenager in my in my head. It's also sometimes a Battle for control of some time of is that come. That's the that's the developmental component of raising children. All through childhood every child wants some level of autonomy and agency and we see the toddler and the teen being very similar. I do it. No I want the independence. I'm making my own decisions. I don't care what you say. That's all very normal but it can really throw parents for a loop and so again when parents not to in their educated and they have a guide to get them through the stages They can rest assured feel empowered not disempowered and help their children navigate through these these times and I think the goal of any parenting relationship is to build a local. I raised a healthy independent. You know.

"You can also get ten percent off by an extra set that lives at Grandma's house and your mother-in-law mother will probably be happy to have additional feeding gear that is consistent with what the babies having at home so I just wanted to say. Thank you to Naomi for sharing her story. She's like this is a work in progress. Like let's pick our battles. We want the baby to be safe. She's offering a variety of foods at home. If Grandma's helping there are a few tweaks that she could make possibly sending the gear sending the food already prepared and then showing a few times. A few meals with grandma. How you want the baby to be fed because seeing really is believing and knowing that gosh if I put the food on the spoon and give it to the baby a baby can do so much more than we sometimes give them credit for but we sometimes have to see it to believe it. So thank you for sharing your story. And then she sent me like a million Q. Videos I'M GONNA ask her if I can link to them and show notes. I haven't done it yet. But this baby is adorable. And they're figuring it out right. Nobody is born knowing how to do all of this stuff. We're all learning together. So thank you for sharing your story. I have one other story I want to share with you. This is so cool because this is a little bit of a different family situation The babies the the mom just for the sake of anonymity. I don't WANNA say The the their handle or anything if the parents say it's okay to share. I'll do so in the show notes but these are parents that I reached out to who had ask for an episode particularly about grandparents and how to get them on board and we'll do a separate episode on daycare because the the euro relationship with daycare provider. Who frankly you are paying to do things the way you ask them to do is different than your relationship with your mother. Who's probably watching your child for free and taking the money side out of it. Maybe some of you pay your mom's to watch your babies which you but like Nannies. Caregivers have slightly different suggestions because again you're sometimes not asking in that regard. You're telling how you want your baby to be taken care of but I know a lot of us like not in a position to tell our mom's how we want the babies to eat and I always share my own story of my own mother who is also a dietician who did traditional spoon feeding with all of us. She's I think this is ridiculous at I like. He fell six kids in your fine. None of you have weird relationships with food. You're all healthy and like yes. There are many children who were traditionally spoon-fed who say lived to tell about it. But when I started doing baby led weaning with my quadruplets. She was not entirely supportive. She wasn't negative but I just chose to not have anyone who started charlie supportive of most situation helping me feed the babies so it took a while for me to get the confidence to do solid foods with my babies in front of my mom and I remember the day. I caught her bragging on the phone to her friend about my quadruplet daughter. Claire Eating Sardines and beats and I was like. Oh Mama thought you were on board with this stuff. Oh my gosh. It's amazing and to this day. We have twenty grandkids. We spent a lot of time with our cousins together. Some of whom are better than others. My mom will be like I would rarely give you credit for things but this whole baby led weaning thing like your kids will literally eat anything. And they're so incredibly independent the caveat there with toddlers though I think a huge success for us is just not eating a lot of snacks. Were almost snatched free household. I will share with you all of my opinions research findings regarding babies and snacks of but grandparents are notorious for feeding babies tons of snacks and then complaining that they don't eat dinner so I feel like I've at least train my mom in that regard. Thank you again. Naomi for sharing your story. I've got one more for you. Guys this situation so mom is American she from Colorado Dad is British. They live in England. Dad's mom was a pediatric Dietitian for many years so This particular mom and her daughter and her husband they live in the UK and so the parents used to always tell a story. The parents both of the parents were traditionally. Spoon Fed traditionally weaned and this particular mom and her husband. She said they're big foodies. They're determined to give their daughter the best chance to be one as well and so Her husband's parents always tell a story. About how one time. The baby was nine months old and he grabbed some steak off their plate and started eating it and they thought it was amazing so he said you can't imagine their astonishment they see our little girl lamb and beef and all the other family food. Starting at six months of age of the mom's parents live in Colorado but they're in the UK and she said. I was video chatting with my mom this week. The baby was eating some toast. With peanut butter thinly spread on it. She had a very small gag. And my mom's instant reaction was. Oh my God she's choking. I stayed very calm. I gave the baby reassuring hand on her As I knew she knew exactly what to do she basically talked her out of it and so the baby recovered. My mom just said so. I guess that's just part of her learning how to eat. And I think that's so cool first of all they're like video chatting and you can see across the globe your child learning or your grandchild rather learning how to eat And that mom maintains the ability to video chat feed foods in stay calm when the baby is gagging which is also MOMS are amazing. But she went on to say. I truly believe the best way to get family members or anyone else for that matter is to show them. I can't see my family every day right now but I send them videos every day of their granddaughter trying new foods my husband's mom keeps saying how amazing it is to see how it challenges everything she was taught during her work and as a fellow. Dietitian. I fully feel that because so often I mean I teach nutrition throughout the life cycle at the college level and have for almost twenty years. And it's amazing that we don't even have in our curriculum. A mention of the fact. The babies can feed themselves now. I mentioned my curriculum but my colleagues we don't learn anything about baby led weaning and think it's why it's so important that the work that baby led weaning researchers are doing that continues to be published that supports this baby. Led approach to feeding seeing is one thing but peer review published. Research is another thing and I think the combination of those two things with the advent of social media and seeing that there are different ways to feed a baby and then to have an established credential professional paediatric Dietitian. Who did this for years? Say Gosh Maybe. There is a different way for a baby to learn how to eat and to be open to that. It's so crazy because when we first started talking about this particular mom was like concern. My family's not on board it. She told me your story. I'm like your family is definitely on board but seeing is believing I think is really key and getting comfortable with feeding your baby I Even perhaps before you involve your caregiver partner rather a might be something that helps you know what can be a difficult time but I just bring this episode to you to hopefully remind you that there's no right or wrong way to feed a baby you do. What is comfortable for you but please know that your baby who is six months of age can and wants to feed himself or herself and I always try to bring it back to Ellen. Saturday's division of responsibility in feeding theory. Which is you guys as parents. We have a job which is to offer. Our babies were in charge of what they eat and when they eat and wear the right. We have to offer wholesome foods at mealtimes in a safe space meaning high chair with a flat foot rest. But it's the baby's job to determine how much or even whether they eat and so if we can remember that our job I is the primary caregiver the one who's probably setting the stage for how this baby will eat. It's our job to determine whose job is what right you take the trash out. I do the dishes. I'M IN CHART. Not The baby with your spouse to your caregiver CETERA. I'm in charge of what in where the baby eats. But I have to let the baby do their job which is deciding how much or even whether they eat so in. Naomi's case when she was saying. Oh my mom says it's more efficient if the is to get the baby to eat X. amount of calories or grams or ounces then yes it would be more efficient. But if we're letting the baby do their job we have to allow the baby the opportunity to feed themselves the opportunity to decide whether they're going to eat or how much they're going to eat and the first few weeks or rocky. I'll give you that much both of the MOMS who shared their story today. Their babies are Naomi's baby is just starting out so she's before that like I called the eight month like we're everything clicks. She's before that period. I guarantee you at eight months of age when Naomi's baby is eating Sardines in beats grandma's. GonNa be grateful that she doesn't have to clean up. Well okay beets are messy. That's a bad example On I do just want to say she had mentioned poop. You guys will see a little bit of the food in your baby's poop and that's fine. That is not an indicator that your baby cannot digest food. Your babies digestive tract is actually fully matured by the three month mark to handle and digest and process any of the nutrients from foods. That adults eat. It's just a gut is learning how to process that still so they can handle it but they're still in the learning mode so don't freak out if you see stuff in the school and they mentioned that with beats because with beats the poop looks like there's blood in it and you freak out that's just beats that's normal k with a spacious is gonNA smell really bad but there are some bodily changes at curb. It's not a sign that something is wrong so in summary. I hope some of their stories were helpful. Naomi with a six month old baby. It hasn't clicked yet. Don't give up on offering your baby variety of foods because you're giving the opportunity to practice by eight months that grandma and even sister-in-law is going to be on board with that one and then for the other mom who's based in the UK that baby nine months of age already enjoying the fruits of her labor. Which is now she gets to like regularly send videos and pictures of her daughter eating a whole variety of foods and grandma overseas in back in the. Us is like wow okay. This is just a different way for a baby learning how to eat and then grandma back in the UK who's a pediatric Dietitian for her whole careers..
"pediatric dietitian" Discussed on Baby-Led Weaning Made Easy
"Health Organization reminds us that all infants should start receiving foods in addition to breast milk from six months onwards. You realize they don't say for months they don't say five months the AARP the World Health Organization. They say six months occasionally. You'll see a range somewhere four to six months. I'm GonNA talk a little bit. In the second about certain rare instances where it would be indicated to feed a baby prior to four months of age. But that doesn't necessarily mean that that's the safest decision because your baby may not be any more equipped okay to swallow these food safely and I know we're all operating in a highly competitive environment highly competitive parenting environment. Well my baby can walk it nine months while my baby talked at ten months. Well guess what may be started solid foods at three weeks or h okay. I'm exaggerating but you don't get any extra credit or Brownie points for your baby. Starting solid foods early. The benefit is in waiting. Now let's talk a little bit about some objections. These are things you hear from other people about. Well why should I wait till six months of age? What if let's talk about iron needs some people say? The baby needs to start solid foods earlier because they need to get additional iron. Here's the deal with iron. Your baby got a large chunk of iron at the tail end of pregnancy from so if your baby was full-term towards the end of pregnancy mom transferred that iron to the baby and that lasts the baby up until about six months of age. You will see that it says sometimes between four and six months of age is when babies iron stores start to dissipate. Of course all babies are different and there are many factors that affect iron status. If you're breastfeeding you might be aware that breast milk is not a particularly rich source of iron however the Iron and breast milk is very well absorbed by the baby's body so even though we might not be as much as the iron fortified infant formula another babies drinking the type of iron for mom's breast milk might be very well absorbed now in some instances. If your pediatrician or the medical team you're working with suspects iron deficiency or iron deficiency anemia or their symptoms indicating. That that's a problem. Then yes there may be the need to start iron earlier but you certainly could do that. Through supplementation in a way that safer babies and wait until six months of age plus exhibiting the other signs of readiness to feed before you start solid foods in order to provide that iron people also ask. Well what if I have a big baby? You have a big baby who needs more than breast milk or formula early on you guys. The size of your baby at a given age has nothing to do with their nutritional needs certain babies may be bigger particularly if there are formula fed and fed more formula than they need. But that doesn't mean that they should start solid foods earlier. They are no more ready or able or capable of safely swallowing foods at four months than a quote unquote. Typical sized baby would be at six months. This same goes for the objection on the other side. Sometimes parents will say to me. I was told I need to start solid foods for my baby because my baby is small. It doesn't work like that. Be If your baby is on the smaller end of the growth curve if your baby has always been charting in the fifth percentile for whatever the parameters are weight for age or length for age or head circumference. What have you as long as your baby is staying on the growth curve and not dropping off precipitously or bumping up. Then we say you're doing a good job. Keep up the good work. The goal is not to get your baby from the fifth percentile to the ninety fifth percentile. That's not how it works. If you have a baby who's always been on the smaller side. You may have a child who's going to be on the smaller side and that's fine as long as they're not dropping off their growth curve. It's also inappropriate to recommend that a baby who's just starting solid foods would ever be able to consume enough calories to promote additional weight. Gain if you have someone who's telling your baby needs to start solid so they can catch up in their weight or gain more weight. That's an inappropriate recommendation again. Your baby doesn't even have the skill set to know. How eat solid foods? How could that baby ever be expected to eat? Enough of the solid foods to promote extra weight GAIN FOR BABIES. Who Do need to gain weight should be working with a pediatric Dietitian? Who can help you with a more realistic plan? Affording vying the baby's formula or their breast milk rather than expecting them to eat food right off the bat when they even had the chance to practice learning how to do that. And that's what baby led. Weaning is all about giving your baby. The opportunity to practice learning how to eat how to feed herself so that she can become independent eater which in turn helps prevent picky eating may promote a healthy relationship with food may be associated healthier weights and reduce risk of overweight obesity. So a lot of this is tied to some of our very first decisions which is well. How old is my baby when I start solid foods? Another argument that you'll hear sometimes. Is that my baby? Should start solid foods early because I want my baby to sleep through the night as nice as that sounds the reason your baby is not sleeping through. The night is not because they haven't started solid foods. I encourage parents to get their sleep schedule sorted out before they start solid foods within reason. If you've never paid attention to the sleep schedule it's going to be hard for you to adjust asleep schedule and start solid foods all in the same week so I would say you. Don't WanNa wait too long. Pass the six month mark because we do know that babies who wait too long to start solid foods that they also have an increased risk of selective eating meaning picky eating so we don't want to start too early because it's dangerous. It could increase the negative associations related defeating if the baby is choking incident and also can increase choking risk. If they're starting to early it can lead to some other medical complications as well since the baby is not yet ready to safely. Swallow those foods on the other side though. Don't wait too long. Either one instance where you may need to introduce solid foods or there is some data rather to suggest the idea that early introduction of solid foods is helpful is in the case of severe reflux. Okay so there is some research that supports the idea. That early introduction of solid foods may help reduce reflux symptoms in some but not all babies so the problem is if your baby is not showing the other signs of readiness to feed but the baby has severe reflux you could inadvertently be increasing the risk of choking and food allergy and some other intestinal situations by introducing solids too early now of course with each of your individual babies. You aren't GonNa want to. Meet with your pediatrician gum. Explain or understand how the course of reflex has been going but the thing that maybe we can hopefully give you a little piece of mind. That estimates are that about half of infants have some degree of reflux okay and that becomes less common as your baby gets older. Reflux generally peaks at three to four months of age. So if that's where you are right now please keep in mind that this is probably as bad as it's ever going to be infant reflux generally resolves itself by the time. The baby is twelve months of age literally. Only like ten percent of babies that started out with reflux will still have a twelve to fourteen months. And it's rare to see that level reflux after eighteen months of age so if you can get through the three to four month period without solid foods as you should because your baby's not ready to eat you'll notice that the symptoms are starting to subside particularly as you approach the time. Were the baby's ready to start solid foods but reflects might be one of those situations where again there is some data to support the idea that early introduction of solid foods may be beneficial pilaff. One I want to mention his. What if you're at high risk for peanut allergy if you're familiar with the guidance for the introduction of peanut protein in order to prevent peanut allergy? We know that babies who are at high risk for peanut allergy should be exposed to the peanut protein between four and six months of age will. That's a little sticky. An open intended with the peanut butter there because babies four to six months of age aren't ready to safely swallow foods so there are some ways that you can actually mix peanut butter puffs with breast milk or formula to soften them to space where they could be given to the baby. It's not ideal to feed a baby anything except milk or formula prior to six months of age but there are some work arounds for those babies now having said that. You're all wondering okay. Well is my baby at high risk for peanut allergy. Should I be doing that before? Six months of age for the good majority of the population. The answer is no if you look at the updated guidelines and the research regarding the risk for peanut allergy. We now say that high risk babies are those who have established egg allergy and or Severe Eczema case again egg allergy and or severe ECZEMA and not your run-of-the-mill Exuma that all babies have you guys. It's severe ECZEMA. Okay as explained to you by your pediatrician or your pediatric dermatologists. Or The allergist okay. Those are the things that put the baby at high risk for peanut allergy and those are the babies should consider introducing at least peanut protein prior to six months of age. But everybody else wait until six months of age so quick win for you guys just a reminder if anyone ever tells you your baby needs to start solid foods because they're too big or too or they need to sleep through the night or the need to have catch up wait. There is no data. There is no evidence there is no research that supports those ideas there plausible okay and as much as we sometimes think that a week or two or a month like in our terms. That's nothing your baby's only been on the planet for a few months at this point waiting an extra month or six weeks. The remarkable amount of developmental changes that your baby will go through can really help set the stage for a safe introduction to solid foods. There is no benefit to pushing this early. There's no need nutritionally to do this. Early eat is much more safe and it is much more fun to feed a baby. Who's ready to eat and take that example of my friend. Who took her to her third baby. To kind of make it all click with baby led weaning and realize Waiting until the kid actually can feed herself and wants to in his engaged in interested in food. That's not only the safest way to feed the baby but it's also a lot more fun as well so if you guys are interested in more tips about baby led weaning. I do these podcast to new episodes every week.

Yup and I think as Sam said it's the importance of understanding how it works in the body's you need to make oil getting these components in your diet guys because if you're not you're likely to be low in meagher. Three is super beneficial for your brain health. Your heart health so many factors but there are also lots of supposed- health health benefits as well from kidney function today. Blood sugar levels you name it These correct so it is. Well accepted that the more plants you can get in your diet the better. That's across the board. We like that. We do think there's a possibility. Eight the plant based diets can be used to treat kidney disease. A maybe even preventive. We know the high fiber diets a really beneficial for cardiovascular health and of course plant based diets done well a high fiber we know high fiber diets. Reduce your likelihood of developing type two diabetes and we NI- Hi. They reduce the likelihood of getting certain types of digestive cancers that so brilliant and every year it seems like more and more research comes out showing driving. There is some really good links between more plant based diets and overrule. Good Health So something to keep an eye on Fisher. I agree okay. I think evidence is emerging that this sign many benefits to it Equally we have to be so aware that it's not a miracle is not going to kill cancer or anything the nothing is. There's no one to die out that and even the Mediterranean Diet which is one of the you know the the most praised diets out there You I even. That's not going to provide miracles. And there's lots of fatty diets out loud and there's no from me. There's no one die out there. That's going to cure cancer. During anything miraculous it will just hopefully make you feel how they And hopefully reduce your risk of getting certain diseases but not know very well explained explained and I think once again we should touch on the fact that you can be an unhealthy Vegan. Yes yes you can. Because after all veganism is about eliminating animal products from diets as lots of ethical. Vegans out that won't go Vegan for nutrition reasons environmental reasons and you know I. It could be a Vegan and I could just eat chips dairy free ice cream. That's a Vegan it tastes really good. Taste great moderation you health absolutely so that that's true it isn't You know that you can be unhealthy. MVP gets a lot of brands that use things to their advantage. I think really confuses the public I even on TV documented. My on. I've done a few and they. They seem to want to almost sale. It's this miracle like we said before. Yes and it's hard because there's a lot of documentaries out there which you really trying to push the benefits of plant based diets and and obviously if you're making a documentary your trying to just play. All the evidence is really supportive and really great And actually what I find. Sometimes they can be a scam. Mongering completely agree. I think some of them are terrifying. And if you someone that might not have access to plant foods doesn't know how to Cook Certain Plant Foods and you watch a documentary and it scares you into going Vegan. I think being scared into doing something isn't a great way to do it. Actually this later really lovely a positive reasons why you can eat more plant foods and that in my mind is is good reason enough So yeah they can't be a little bit problematic. Yeah I think Anything to make a little bit of money or to Labor Sarah Bob Vegan to shift a female sale absolutely and with being Vegan Gandhari as well Salted office quite a grassroots movement. And now you know lots of different companies really jumping on that and to try and sell products absolutely eh. It is fascinating because I've noticed the difference in the last two or three is Yeh with with a demand for people just wanting newspaper features on January vary in different things that just one there. When I started mining attrition crap? And I'm sure you felt the same. Yeah yeah absolutely absolutely so pregnancy is obviously. I'm currently currently as we record this episode. Twenty seven weeks pregnant so congratulate. Yeah I'm coming into the third trimester. Now thank he which is very exciting citing and I had a lot of questions from people asking about. Is it safe to be Vegan during pregnancy. And I know what your mom for could. Yeah absolutely so. I've got some real personal experience on this now which is really reassuring So the British authentic associations states the plant based diets safer every age age and stage of life and that includes lactation. I'm pregnancy and I'd say if you'll Plant based in pregnant or thinking about conceiving The advice is pretty pretty much the same as any other pregnant person. He no you need to be eating healthy balanced diet taking your folic acid for the first twelve weeks You do have increased preteen needs as a pregnant woman but usually If you're eating enough of the right food you should be hitting your protein. But it's just good to be mindful well. Having these primary protein sources every meal calcium your requirements for calcium really increased during pregnancy alison. I'm not moving into the thousand and like milligrams a day amount. Yes and I'm currently breastfeeding so I think it's twelve hundred and fifty. Yes it's quite a big amount of calcium that you we need and with plant foods. Probably the best sources of calcium for plant. Food would be things like you'll fortified plant milks calcium set. Tofu has an amazing. The amount of calcium behind your Graham I think about five hundred milligrams a hundred grand but you need to make sure it's calcium sat. Say Look on the labels for that and the lot supply supplant foods that have calcium in them like beans lentils but his a caveat. You've got things could fight. Tate's oxalates that natural harmless organic compounds that present in things like beans lentils but they can disrupt the absorption of calcium. We wouldn't consider beans and lentils to be good sources So what you can do is you can soak sprouts or cook. You'll beans and lentils and that helps to reduce the fight tate and oxalate contents which can really help with the absorption. Absorption and Vitamin D also helps calcium absorption. Which is why those fortify plant milks of a real godsend really fortified feeds in general? I assessed advice for anyone. Plant want based in being pregnant browbeating. Get it in eight Cite Soleil. Yeah it's really refreshing to hear actually That there are options to ploughed there and a very topical conversation at the moment going on in the media is should we be bringing our children up Vegan. Now And I'm just GonNa let you answer that. Well I guess yes as long as you're doing it safely and as long as you have the knowledge Because after all we all bring up our children with our own ethics the morals so people plant based Vegan. They'll be bringing up their children in a way that they feel is right for them but the key is just to make sure that you're doing it responsibly. And one of the key things you need to remember if you bring up children plant based I is the two things that are really important for growth in kids protein. Obviously but actually calories and as I mentioned earlier you know a lot of plant foods. It's a very high in fiber the very filling so probably the biggest thing you need to look for if raising Vegan children is making sure. They're getting enough calories. If they're having lots of high fiber fiber feeds. They might fill up more quickly and not get enough calories so a few tips you can give a variety of whole grains and refined grains so for instance give them white pass white bread but also brown rice. Something else you could do is make sure. There's plenty of healthy fats in there. So avocados nut butters that will certainly help with their calorie intake. And it's particularly important in under threes to make sure who using a plant based milk that it's one mm it's appropriate for their age so a lot of plant based milks quite low in protein and not always fortified with a good variety of micronutrients for new trends. The current recommendations would be out programming up milk which is fortified with B twelve calcium the investment in iden- and Oatley Barista again fortified with all of those nutrients and the reason why suggests those two is because they are high high enough in calories. Because it's really important that the plot milk is high in calories and a lot of plot. MILKS can be very low in calories. Sucks why those are. The currently the to recommended milks that you'd be oeste considered by a pediatric Dietitian. Such invaluable advise because it can be a complete minefield. I'm sure tool for parents out there. Knowing what to look for and I think it's very easy to forget batch Yo- trojans or comments went listed on the labels on the back of a pack is generally speaking seeking the adults yet and also children's calorie requirements are probably higher than you might think you sort of look at your kid and you think well you know that sort of a quarter of decisive means that they might need a quarterback alleys but that's not necessarily true They they they go through huge rapid growth breath. Exactly yeah I mean that race spurts time. Everything's covering exactly that going from this tiny little thing. I've watched my own grow from this little little eight pound baby into this ten kilo monster in nine months and mainly with my breast milk and now she's she's weaning onto feeds and it's just incredible credible the amount of growth the brain development. It completely blows my mind and it is just so important to if anyone listening. Take take notes when you're listening to this. podcast cost because going to a documentary to get information about these like the ones. We're not going to name them but they don't educate you in the same way. They'll a have the viewpoint and they'll raise a point but that's not your main goto sources it for nutrition. It's it's a really good place to start and there are some things in the documentaries that are valid in a really really well backed up with science and as other research in there that maybe isn't as well backed up But it's hard ought to know what's what and as a health professional watching them. I know well I know. That's the Nice guidelines at. That's valid but I've never heard of this before and then I look at the research paper and maybe the the quality of research in isn't as high as I would pass any want be using but it's very difficult difficult as layperson as a member of the public watching watching those so don't believe everything documentaries but make sure if you're GONNA turn to social media follow registered nutritionists and Dietitians follow people. He pull the like you know what they're doing absolutely. I'm held accountable for the advice that I give him. That's my registration. That's where you can trust what I'm putting Out there whereas regulation about doesn't exist for doctors and especially in America the don't have that same level of of regulation Russian that exists and there's a lot of confusion often Yeah with titles of different health professionals out there but over the last couple of years it has become very popular Okla.. Hasn't it to make the dietary shift or no. So what would you say the biggest consequences of going. I mean should it continue to grow so you think it's just going to get bigger and bigger what people need to really think about so I really do think it is going to continue to grow especially with everything. Everything going on right now with flooding in Indonesia the finances trade Climate change is very real and we know the plant based diets on the whole Better for the environment. They're they're more sustainable option Plant milks some plant milks. More sustainable abol than other plant milks. And the milk available from animal sources so I think it will keep on grubbing. And what's really encouraging urging is. The brands are fortifying foods..
"pediatric dietitian" Discussed on Dishing Up Nutrition
"You were just talking about a lot of great tactics before we went to break. I loved that you said don't react and I think so many of us especially with that first child are prone to reacting and I think you alluded to this in your book. A positive reaction can can sometimes be just as harmful as that negative reaction right we don't we just don't want to be reactive and and thought that I had when I was listening clean to you just before we went to this commercial break was I feel like this has worked well at our house. Anyway I will serve up the food food and I really try hard not to react and I would also say while my kids aren't picky eaters per se they're not super adventurous like my husband and I are either so meals can sometimes feel a little boring but I feel like as long as my husband and I are modeling healthy the eating with a variety of different vegetables and meats and I think they'll come along eventually and in fact I saw this happen and then I want to turn it over to you and let you comment on this but my son who's thirteen. Just this year will let me back up so for years. I've been serving Taco Salad at our house so for my husband and I that's that's a bunch of Romaine lettuce and some vegetables with the tackle meat and sour cream and salsa on the tap my kids however sit right next to us and they dish up just the tackle meat and the sour cream and maybe a little salsa base skipped the Romaine and the vegetables just this year. My thirteen year old asked when I served it up here a month ago if he could have the Romaine in the vegetables. I'm like yeah my head thinking. Yes actually having a salad so I feel like if we could just keep muddling it. Do you think most of the time kids will come along eventually I do I do. I believe that I've seen that in my own children as well and and I think it helps parents to understand too that combination foods are really hard for kids especially when they're young and if you can separate them out like your children naturally did with your Taco Salad that they can still get the same foods they just some kids don't like them to be piled on top of each other or to be mixed ext together or to touch each other and so it's okay if you deconstruct a Taco Salad and and serve it in fact I liked to serve what I call a dinner bar approach to foods wear all and this is really for older kids but where they can pick and choose from the meal elements it's or for the from the entree elements and compose their own plate and I did that a lot with my own children too but just to to for for the listeners you know this is a long game. We don't raise healthy eaters overnight. It's a it's an eighteen year process and modeling showing kids what it's like to eat. Well what it's like to sleep well to move your body every day. Those are the things kids need to see on a regular daily basis. Yes and they learn those behaviors over time when they do see them what can happen with parents in in relationship to picky eating as that they give. It's up. They give up on vegetables. They give up on complicated meals because their their child rejects it and so therefore they think I'm I'm not going to waste my time. I'm not going to waste the money and in giving up they just unfortunately kids lose that opportunity to learn with if time and so that's the other piece of it is don't give up. Just keep your keep on your game. Plan model be adventurous with food yourself have nutritious foods and balanced meals show up regularly day in and day out and your child literally will figure it out. It may take some kids years. It may take some kids months but they will figure it out yes. I think that that's that's good advice. I feel like it's so true to how what's going on in my my house right now. I'm eating a lot of leftovers because I refuse to give up. I feel like someday someday. I'm going to have the situation yeah said it's it's a long game long game any really long when you're in it yeah yeah yet when in your in your book you try new food how to help picky eaters taste eat and like new foods. You said it's important to understand the difference between tasting and eating food and your your book is called. TRY NEW FOODS NOT NECESSARILY EAT new food. So could you explain a little bit about what you mean. There sure so there are steps you know to go through before you actually eat a food. Eating food is consuming it right swallowing it. It goes into your stomach. Your digestive system but tasting acting is very different tasting can be licking it can be putting food in your mouth and taking it out it could be kissing food so so you get the flavor on your lips and even before putting food around or in your mouth and taking it out the experience the sensory experience of engaging with food from touching it to smelling it to picking it up and feeling it or unwrapping a banana or clementine nine just that interaction with food really loads the sensory system with a lot of feedback and some children need to have those pre free eating or pre tasting experiences. Some children are willing to do the tasting piece of it so licking chewing it taking it out everything saying before you actually swallow the food and when you swallow the food that is eating yes. I think one thing I heard either I heard podcasts cast or or in your book was that we shouldn't be so worried about them getting messy yeah like cleaning them up after every bite and and I love if you talk a little bit about imports of that in just a minute but we have to take another break so darn commercial comes fast. You're listening to dishing up nutrition this morning. We have Jill Castle with US via phone. Jill is a pediatric Dietitian and author of China food how to help picky eaters taste eat and like new foods foods. She will be sharing some strategy. She has found to successfully turn picky eaters into adventurous eaters. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional nutritional weight and wellness before we jump back into our topic of tips for feeding a picky eater. I WanNa talk just for a minute about heart health and first first of all. I'm really happy to say that most of our clients when they come in for a consult they've had their cholesterol numbers tested it in fact I find or when I was in clinical practice. I found that most people were getting their cholesterol numbers tested yearly so they knew their total cholesterol new their HDL their LDL L. D. L. and a lot of people also had that triglycerides number tested however and I don't know if you still see this today theresa in Clinical Clinical Practice. Most clients don't really know what that triglycerides number means no really they might know the number but they don't know that that number kin skin tell us a lot in terms of cardiovascular risk for example somebody with a triglycerides level of three hundred would have a higher risk of having a heart attack or a cardiovascular event then somebody with a lower number regardless of what that total cholesterol is is in fact if we look at statistics somebody with a triglycerides of three hundred has about a twenty eight percent higher risk of having a heart attack or some other cardiovascular risk versus somebody with a triglycerides one hundred so if I've piqued your interest at all if you WANNA learn more we have several weight and wellness series starting here next month in October and they're packed with great information about our overall health but also also specifically about our heart health in the six week weight and wellness series. We we spend two hours so that six weeks series is twelve hours total all but we spend a full two hours focusing on heart health and helping the class participants understand how their cholesterol numbers affect their overall health what normal cholesterol numbers look like and how to eat to normalize those numbers if they're a little out of whack and I think it's a great series series for the entire family. Parr's the entire family can learn how to manage their their cholesterol and just get heart healthy through eating real food now now. If six weeks is too much of a time commitment because of your current schedule we also have our weekend weight and wellness series. That's coming up here October Eleventh Twelfth and Thirteenth both of these weight and wellness series as well as that menopause survival seminar. I talked about earlier in the show offer continuing education credits to both nurses and social workers so that's a little added bonus. If you want to learn more call the office at six five one six nine nine three four three eight or again you can go to our website weight and wellness dot com so getting back to our conversation about tips for feeding picky eaters. I thought it was interesting. Jill listening to you before commercial talk about how it tasting is very different than eating dean and it reminded me in for the life of me. I can't remember what I had served that night but about a year ago my younger one whatever she put in her mouth that I had made that night the look on her face and she looked at me and it was like mom I can't and I said okay go to the garbage and spit that out. It was really calm. I'm really proud of myself because she was ready to spit it out on her plate. Okay to the garbage. Spit it out. You know I didn't make a big deal again. I can't remember what dish was. I probably didn't make it again but but she of the two kids she certainly is is the one that will have more issues shoes with food even though I wouldn't necessarily call her picky but but I love that you know okay taste it so she tasted it and I didn't push it and you you know I I just I really feel like she will come around another thing. July love to have you comment on when I was reading your book you talked about some research in your yearbook in which they discovered that babies between four to six months old are actually more receptive to a variety of different flavors but after six months and they become less receptive to new foods new flavors. I think you called it the honeymoon phase. Can you talk more about that yeah so so the research tells us that there's a flavor window bef- between four and six months and actually can extend up to about eighteen months and basically what that means is that that's the time when babies and young toddlers are very willing and open to trying new flavors and new new foods and new textures and that's why it's so important if listeners out there have infants to start solids right around six months because is we want to take advantage of that flavor window and in that period of time the goal is really to introduce as many different foods and flavors as as we can and now with the Food Allergy Prevention Recommendations we do want to introduce things like fish and and eggs and milk products that have been baked into foods. We WanNA introduce those things all within that first year of life by twelve months partly to prevent food allergies but also to introduce all these different foods and flavors That's the honeymoon phase. I call it that right because it's a wonderful time. Feeding babies are very open. They enjoy eating. It's rewarding for parents to feed their babies because they see them. I'm enjoying food and then after eighteen months we start to get into that NEO phobia fear of new food that the picky eating stage starts to creep in and so again you know that is.

Sir I guess this segment of the pug costs is all about your courage any so I guess. Let's get back to the stop because because although you're currently living in London you did study Australia is that right yes I did. So I studied down in Willow Gong the University Demand Matt. Okay I hear you. Were you born in Australia. Yes yes I was born. Just south will osborne in Mongo K.. Are and what university the degree did you do. It will income with a nutrition and dietetic. UNDERGRAD will yes. I did the full year Headaches undergraduate degree wow angus August. How has your experience at university when you think back to? That time I really enjoyed university. I think a lot of us. Being very academic and very We we really liked Easter. I love learning so my experience was very positive entity one. I'm trying to when I think back about my time university. I sort of forget about how stressful it was not only remember of it. Well that's good. Yeah that was really good. I really liked long. You need to because it was like a Before and it just Buildings decides it's a crowded whereas has an open space. It's just a really nice place to study. Yeah Yeah I recently went to William couple months actually And it's funny. Because I grew up in the central car. Stephanie South Wales which isn't far from willing Gong but that was the first Tom Bin Nun. It's quite a beautiful place. Yes similar to this central coast. Yeah Yeah I guess. What did you do post university? So did you go restraining to work. What did you take any time off? straight into looks. I was extremely lucky to get one of the senior positions in these files right So I started work within two months of graduating on time. You Graduate Job At a little snow in Sydney Almane yells working may aged care and rehabilitation. Wow Okay how did you find that going straight into university where you feeling pretty exhausted. We excited excited. I remember I cried when I like when I found a job because I knew it will always told how hard it is to find work and then all how did I get a job. Within two months it was it was really ready to stop. And how long were you at that In that John Full I was there for one year. The twelve month position. So what have you been doing. I guess between then and now because you're obviously working right in the UK at the moment. So what sort of happened in between not time. Yeah so after that I stayed within the same health district or another twelve months Working in similar roles in to the hospitals hospitals and doing just general medical surgical that sort of things they always in adults and then the following couple of years he is. I worked as a paediatric. Dietitian acts Westmead hospital in Sydney. I'd never thought I was going to compete tricks. But then when I was at one of my roles roles succumbing came up and Wished into the area next loved it So then at that time I was like oh I could move to London and get data the and I actually found a -sition Sydney And then in that role as well I started to look on eating disorders the the nets when really interested lacking in eating disorders after that she is and then a few different jobs in eating disorders. I did that for a year and a half and moved to London answer. How long have you been in London now just under year and if there anything that you have to do you to have your qualification? Recognised ever in the canyon gas so the process is a lot easier than a lot of other countries. Where really lucky that we don't and have to see it any examinations So what we need to do is to register with the governing body over in the UK which is called the healthcare professionals channels council. They need to IDA along application foam. I'm which then is processed by them so generally like the seventy Dietitians the UK but we generally say that you need about six months in order for that process to be completed. It's quite a long time six months. Yeah so it's fusion about three to three months to get application finished. Yeah because you need the most important part is actually from your university easy. Need to fill out a certain section and then get your university to stem on a and then you also need to get a character references so it just this lengthy getting old information from other people. Yeah and then. I guess you'd have your visa on top of that. Yeah yeah which made in two weeks to get so that's good. Yeah that sounds like the plot of the person S. I'm sorry in Estonia Australia. I feel like it's very much the norm for Dietitians to work in multiple job roles at the one time I guess to create like that full-time work lay for themselves. Have you found. That's the case. Dietitians are in London. UK as well. Not when I first got here. I accepted I've had two you fulltime roles whacking nhs and then when an opportunity came up For me to get a in addition working in eating disorders which was part time. I now have three. Yeah Yeah and I know that you were telling me. They obse working in a private hospital on an eating disorder unit. You've got to like them patriotic position with NHS breath and then you also sort of doing freelance work. And I guess you'll rollet. The clinic falls into that category. Sorry I guess we all of that in mind. What does a normal week lack a so? I work three days in the hospital position.

So how much calcium do you actually need babies need about five hundred twenty milligrams of counseling per day and toddlers wanted three euros need thrown a fifteen minute rooms day four to six year olds need four fifty minute rooms a day seven to ten year olds need five fifty minimum today. So you can see the requirements on increasing assure get older and then from around the age of eleven till about eighteen for boys. They need. A thousand milligrams a day to quite a bit more. That's a big jump and a little bit less of about eight hundred milligrams a day. Now, you're probably thinking while what does that actually look like in terms of food, and there's a great question. But before we start on Seraing that let's think about why do children actually need calcium. Well, as you know, calcium is important for building strong bones. And and you really have this window of opportunity to labout say, you know, early twenties very early twenties to pack up as much calcium into bones as possible because they're often you actually start to lose bone. So this is a very important time to try and maximize the home much calcium. You can get into children's births kinda. Like a Bank account where you want to deposit as much of this mineral as possible to have really great, strong bones. During adulthood, calcium also has a role in helping blood vessels regulate. The flow of blood in your body, it assists in the contracting of muscles aid has a role in the communication between sales and contributes to blood clotting. So it looks like it's got quite a lot of functions. So that's why it's really important that Suren get enough calcium throughout the day. So where did you need to get calcium?

That's at least sixty minute grams in two hundred Mils of cow's milk. But you definitely don't need to think about numbers line that you don't need to think about. Okay. So is that thirty percent of dairy is. Is absorbed. How do I reach the three? Fifty milligrams a day for say a toddler between the age of one to three years of age.
