Welcome to Embodied Kiddos! I’m Kristen (she/her). I’m a mom, certified body trust provider, and an early childhood development geek. I work with parents of young children to help develop resilience against diet culture and to strengthen children’s innate skill of intuitive eating. I was a preschool teacher before becoming a parent and my passion is supporting parents so they can support their kiddos. I’m part of a growing community of health care providers that believe in shifting the focus away from weight and to more intrinsic markers of health. I believe that meal time is an early playground to practice long term life lessons like consent, pleasure, autonomy, connection and trust.
