When you were a child, did you ever have an adult tell you not to get up from the table until you ate every bite of food on your plate? If so, you may have been initiated into the "clean plate club".
The problem with the clean plate club is that it causes you to ignore your body's own hunger and fullness cues. Instead, it teaches you to rely on an empty plate to tell you when to stop eating.
One of the biggest dangers of being part of the clean plate club is that you may unintentionally pass this habit on to your kids. If children are taught to eat even when they're not hungry, that can set them up for a lifetime of overeating and binge eating.
In this episode, I talk about why we may think asking our kids to clean their plates is helpful, but why it actually isn't in reality. I also talk about what you can do instead to support your children at mealtimes.
