The Division of Responsibility in Feeding
Have you heard of the Division of Responsibility? It’s an important tool that can help parents of all ages reduce stress and battles around meal times! Read on for more information about it! Our goal as parents is to help our kids have a healthy relationship with food. Another way to say that is that we want them to become competent eaters. But just what do those mean, really? To be a competent eater, there are a few things we are looking for.
The Best Ways to Use Leftovers
My family has always eaten leftovers. I grew up on them, and have eaten them as an adult since I moved out of my parents house. Before becoming a dietitian and making food pretty much my life, it would never have occurred to me that everyone else doesn’t do this, too! But once I started seeing clients and answering nutrition questions, I realized that leftovers get such a bad rap! Sometimes to the point of people thinking they should never have them, or that they’re nutritionally inferior.
How to Teach Your Baby to Use a Spoon
One of the most common questions I get is about how to teach your baby to use a spoon. Today we’ll talk about the specific things you can do to help your baby learn to use a spoon. In this post I talked about some more passive ways you can teach spoon use. I’ve seen all sorts of recommendations on this.

About Renae

As a dietitian, how to create great relationships with children and food has always been my passion. When I had my daughter and started thinking about how to feed her I realized firsthand how harsh the mommy shaming can be. Some of the worst shaming happens around food and what you feed your kids! I felt compelled to start New Ways Nutrition to help parents build a foundation for feeding. I help parents learn how to keep their kids safe and how to prevent picky eating, while giving them the confidence to do the rest of the feeding in their own way. A way that's right for their family.
