In this episode, Ivy Thompson and Meghann Birks give us an insight into their family lives, as they talk about how they juggle Primal living with kids.

They share with us “how Paleo” their families are and how they go about raising primal kids, including:

  • What concessions and compromises they make for what their children eat
  • What’s not-negotiable in terms of food options
  • How to not feel guilty about what their kids eat
  • How they avoid projecting any food neuroses and hang-ups onto their children
  • How they manage the expectations and commentary from their extended families
  • How they manage school lunches, the tuck shop, after school snacks, continual grazing, the “…it’s not fair mum :( …” and the “I’m hungry mum”
  • What they struggle with and how they overcome these hurdles
  • “Primal Play”
  • …and generally what works for them and what doesn’t
