Every January, I undertake one behavior change, and one dietary shift. This year, those two categories merge, and stem from the same concept: mindfulness.

    Most of my behaviors reflect being a mother of young, impressionable children. While we have made great strides during mealtimes, this year I will invite my kids to routinely share in dinner preparation.

    As a nutritionist-mom, kids’ participation in meal planning has many layers: They eat more diverse foods, so that I may increase the nutrient-density of meals, regain my kitchen creativity and practice specific dietary approaches.
