Top 3 Nutritional Tips for a Healthy and Happy Holiday Season: Navigating Eating Around the Holidays for Children

Venus Kalami, MNSP, RD, CSP, board-certified pediatric dietitian, and nutritionist at Stanford Children’s Health discusses ways for families to model a compassionate and more sustainable approach to nutrition for their children during the holiday season. The holidays are a time where healthy eating can be difficult for everyone, particularly those with pre-existing dietary conditions. They can also be a time where personal struggles around food and nutrition can feel front and center, from the child to the parent or caregiver. For this holiday season, Venus shares ways to reframe how to approach nutrition around the holidays, by 1) ditching antiquated adages around health and nutrition, 2) fostering mindfulness and tuning into an intuitive eating approach and lifestyle, and 3) leaning on your “village” and community to make nutrition around the holidays doable.
