I Think I Have 'Imposter Syndrome' But For Parents
My 5-year-old son’s glasses are on their last leg. He has a backup pair – frames in a nice green we bought months ago for just this reason – but surprise! I can’t find them. Rooting around in drawers, I take note of the clutter I find and start berating myself for my lack of organization. By the end of the morning, I find myself sucked into a vortex of parenting shame, convinced I’m not competent enough to be in charge of another person. I can’t handle this, I think to myself. I am not good enough to do this job. There’s a thing called “imposter syndrome,” named by psy...

It ’s Not About the Panini: A Story About OCD and Anorexia
18 years ago I found myself drawn to a light switch. Turning the lights on and off became an ordeal as every room’s light switch hypnotized me into gliding my fingers across it, pressing my fingertips against the smooth plastic until it satisfied me. A similar undertaking occurred with door knobs. I felt the intense need to wrap my hands tightly around the knob, releasing it and then grasping it again. I did this until the tightness in my stomach dissolved, until I felt calm enough to walk away. Around the same time, intrusive thoughts infiltrated my mind. They began as the mispronunciation of words in my ...

The only kids who need vitamins (spoiler alert: there aren ’t many)
As a pediatrician, I get a lot of questions whether their children should take a multivitamin or other vitamin supplement. Parents think they will make their children healthier — and some think they will make them eat more (they don’t, sorry). Since our bodies need different vitamins to be healthy, they ask, Should I give my child a multivitamin? Not necessarily, actually. It turns out that most children don’t need them, making them an expensive waste of money. They can also be dangerous if children take too many, something that is very possible given that most chewable multivitamins for children taste like candy. An...

France Bans Free Soda Refills In Latest Effort To Fight Obesity
Unlimited sugary beverages are now a thing of the past in France’s public eateries. In a new rule that went into effect on Friday, the country outlawed free or fixed-price refills on soda and other sugary drinks in its latest effort to tackle obesity,  the BBC reported. The law follows recommendations by the World Health Organization, which has also suggested taxing sugary drinks to decrease their consumption. “Reduced consumption of sugary drinks means lower intake of ‘free sugars’ and calories overall, improved nutrition and fewer people suffering from overweight, obesity, diabetes and t...

Lessons from a Journey Back to Intuitive Eating
While discussing childhood nutrition in my undergraduate lifecycle nutrition class, I remember being so surprised at the simplicity of Ellyn Satter's teachings about eating. According to Satter, a child should never be forced to eat or not eat, but rather should learn to listen to their body's internal eating cues. The parent decides when and what to serve, and the child decides how much. Eating should be enjoyable. There is no guilt or praise. Food is just food. I realized while learning Satter's concepts that I had lost touch with my internal eating cues. Even a college degree in nutrition could not protect me from fee...
