Let Them Eat … Everything

·1 min

The dinner preparations are complete, and Virginia Sole-Smith is ready to serve her daughters. She emphasizes the importance of respecting the effort put into cooking and reminds them that there are alternative food options available if they don’t like what she has prepared. Sole-Smith aims to model the idea that mothers should prioritize self-care and have their own needs acknowledged. In her book, she guides parents on navigating weight and food-related anxieties. Sole-Smith advocates against bias and discrimination towards people with larger bodies. At her home, there are no food restrictions, and she believes this approach will teach her children to appreciate their bodies and listen to their hunger cues. Her book challenges the pressure on women to be thin and raise thin children.
