What does picky eating have to do with attachment, survival, and trust? Let’s talk about it with Deborah MacNamara, a counsellor and expert in family relationships. In this episode of the Vegan Family Kitchen Podcast, we discuss how food is way more than what we put in our mouth! It’s connected to attachment and deeply involved in how we form relationships with each other, starting in infancy with our parents and other adult caregivers.┬áDeborah discusses her experiences with helping adults make sense of their relationships with food and children, giving insights on treating food issues through the lens of relationships. As the author of the book ‘Nourished: Connection, Food and Caring for Our Kids (and everyone else we love),’ Deborah McNamara emphasizes the importance of nurturing relationships through food, with adults taking the lead in caretaking to foster secure and healthy connections.
