Introducing our

What to Say Q&A Series

As an adult who cares deeply about the children in your life, we know that you are doing your best to protect their physical and mental health by stopping diet & weight talk. We also know that we live in a busy world. Learning what to say is a journey. We’re not always going to get it right. All we can do is our best to incorporate these new ideas into your life, listen to yourself and adjust as you go until you find the words and actions that you believe and want the children in your life to take with them.

That’s why we’re excited to bring you the What to Say Q&A Series.

This brand-new series, which will debut in March 2021, will provide answers to your everyday questions about supporting the health of kids through food and body. Engaging voices you can trust, WithAll will give you access to expert and relevant guidance and practical steps for supporting your kids health, answering your questions like:

  • What do I do when my child keeps asking for popsicles for breakfast?

  • I don’t want my child to have the same struggles with food and body that I did. What can I do differently?

  • My mother is always talking about calories in front of my kids. How can I have a conversation with her asking her to stop?

  • How can I encourage my child to eat “healthier” foods without labeling them?

  • Can kids really be trusted to eat balanced and intuitively? What is my role in helping them make food choices?

Each month, we’ll choose a few of your questions to answer in short Q&A videos or blog posts. We’ll provide practical tips & advice to address your real situations and help you live out the pledge in your daily lives.

FAQ

What is the purpose of the Q&A Series?

The purpose of this Q&A Series is to explore the real-life situations you face when it comes to conversations about food and body with kids. We’ll provide simple, actionable tips to help you with everyday situations you may encounter with the kids you love and adults who care about them. Although this series may help provide ideas for living out the pledge in your daily life, it cannot account for your child’s unique situation. If you are struggling to provide support for a child you care about, we recommend reaching out to a primary care provider or other professional who can address your specific, unique needs.

I submitted a question. When can I expect to see it answered?

Unfortunately, we get many questions from What to Say Hub members each month and cannot guarantee when or if your question will be answered. We will do our best to get to as many questions as possible, but may need to group similar questions together or postpone answering questions until we can engage an expert who can appropriately address your concern.

I have an urgent question I need answered. Can I indicate on my form that I need immediate help?

Recommendations and advice featured in our What to Say Q&A Series is not a substitute for professional medical care. If you have immediate concerns that need to be addressed, consult the child’s primary care provider or other professional. If you are having an emergency, please go to the nearest hospital or call your country’s emergency number.

I have a recommendation for someone you should feature in your series – OR – I’d like to be featured in your series. Who should I contact?
