The pandemic has shaken everything up, and our kids’ diets and family’s eating habits are no exception. In this month’s Voices interview, Meagan talks to Julie Revelant, food and health writer, mom of two, and host of the new podcast Food Issues. Listen to Julie’s thoughts on how COVID-19 has affected everything from school lunches to snacking habits, the sneaky ways marketers are introducing junk food to children (including “kid influencers” and even online learning platforms!) and how you can give yourself a break and stay flexible while still helping your kids become “little foodies.”
