The podcast about the joys (and meltdowns!) of feeding our families and ourselves. Every week we examine how diet culture, body image issues and our own hectic lives get in the way of putting a dinner on the table that we can all feel good about. And we offer practical, road-tested tips to help you make peace with your own eating (or your kid's picky eating!) and find more joy in your family's food life. Hosted by best friends and writers Amy Palanjian (creator of the popular blog Yummy Toddler Food) and Virginia Sole-Smith (author of The Eating Instinct).

Like mac n cheese in the dead of winter—just what I needed!

I discovered Comfort Food at almost the same moment I was bowled over by morning sickness for the first time. This is my first pregnancy, and while I knew nausea could be a part of it, I never guessed that most of my favorite foods would become utterly repulsive to me overnight. Even now that I can eat (almost) normally again in my second trimester, going through this process—now with my body changing so rapidly week by week—has brought up a lot a lot of thoughts and feelings about food that I thought I had long since put to bed.

Not only does this podcast help me think through what’s coming next when the baby shows up, inspiring several good conversations between my husband and I about baby-led weaning, division of responsibilities, etc, but it also helps me, right now. It has been a long road in my life to get to the point of eating healthily (that is eating without guilt, what I’m hungry for, when I am hungry), and hearing those values articulated clearly—and backed up by research!—as a cohesive alternative to diet culture, has been incredibly affirming and helpful. Thank you Virginia and Amy!


So glad I found this podcast! I heard about it from another podcast that was interviewing Virginia and talking about her book. I immediately put her book in my amazon wishlist for Christmas and subscribed to this podcast. Such great content! Love ! Love ! Love!


I am a pediatric registered dietitian and just finished listening to the podcast on “Why do we care about kids and vegetables.” I couldn’t agree more with all of the points made about the idea of “good” vs “bad” foods. I am always reminding parents to avoid “sneaking” foods into things their kids eat so that the learn to appreciate foods for what they learn to enjoy peas as peas and broccoli as broccoli. Thank you so much for sharing this!!
