Feeding toddlers can make any sane parent feel a little nutty, what with their unpredictability and sheer variability in hunger and likes. We get into some of this in this week’s episode of the Comfort Food podcast, sharing our experiences and some from listeners.

Virginia has a 15 month old and I have a two year old (at the time we recorded this episode) and we talk through everything from toddlers not wanting to sit in their highchairs, being all done with a meal right after they start, the blessing and the curse of their love of routine, and may more toddler eating habits that you may be wondering about. Listen for reassurance that you’re not alone and that the crazy behavior in your house may in fact be fairly normal!
We gush about Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat and the author, Samin Nosrat, at the end of the episode. We both love the Netflix show and her book and find her approach to cooking refreshing and freeing. Do check it out if you haven’t! (I love the slow roasted salmon recipe.)
Also on the show: I love these frozen bean and cheese burritos for quick meals when I don’t have time to cook a meal for myself.
