TBDHU Resources on Eating Disorders and Using Neutral Language About Food

At our May Cook’s Network, we discussed using neutral language about bodies and food in Child Care and Early Years settings.  Michaela Bohunicky, Registered Dietician at TBDHU asked us to share these resources with you. One is Eating Disorders Ontario Prevention- Overview of Disordered Eating Prevention- How Can Schools Help? And the other is Teaching and Talking to Students About Food and Nutrition.

Please feel free to share with your teams and families! This content is most geared toward school-agers, however, the information and links in the articles have great suggestions for how to have conversations about bodies and food with children of all ages. We hope you find this helpful!

Have a lovely Friday!
