Humble Pie: Parental Food Behaviors Affects on Children

When you become a parent, that Humble Pie recipe is everywhere, isn't it? Making it sure is easy-and so is by-passing it on the buffet table. It's the taking a bite that's the hard part-like choking down a handful of razor blades.

My colleague Angela Lemond, The Mommy Dietitian, blogs about the importance of taking a bite of this particular recipe.

Humble Pie: Parental Food Behaviors Affects on Children


Several days of low nutrient, high calorie foods

1 lifetime of vegetable avoidance
1 week of extreme dieting
2 days of restrictive eating
1 night of binge eating
1 food group elimination

1/2 day of emotional eating and/or stress eating

1 poor body image

daily meal skipping
1 case of orthorexia


Mix one or more ingredients together by blending well. Cover and allow ingredients to rise.

We are always looking for family recipes. But what is the recipe that you are serving without even realizing it? In my dietetic practice as a pediatric and family dietitian, I see parents of young children that have one, two or several of these "ingredients." With childhood obesity such a problem, I believe that we must take a good, long look at ourselves and how we night be impacting the young people in our lives. Check yourself. What is your relationship with food like? Do you feel comfortable around a variety of foods? How do you think your relationship with food is affecting your children? Because the truth is that our children will do as we DO, not as we say. Just like anything else in life, any change you would like to see in the world needs to start with you. Let us all take a bite of humble pie and taste all its flavors. It might not taste great, but your consumption, digestion and then hopefully, elimination will be the true nourishment that is best for both you and your children for years to come.
If you think you have a poor relationship with food, contact a Registered Dietitian (RD) in your area that specializes in wellness nutrition or even disordered eating. An RD can develop a balanced food plan and assist with changing food behaviors that will yield a great final recipe intended for the entire family.
