Eating While Parenting

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Anyone who takes care of kids knows that eating off children's plates is part of the everyday dining experience. But which kid scraps make for the most delicious eats? How can an eater make these scraps even better? And which touched/dropped/pre-masticated foods are just too gross to consume?

Hillary Frank of WNYC's parenting podcast The Longest Shortest Time is disgusted by Dan's answers, but Dan remains undeterred. He talks with Arun Venugopal of WNYC's Micropolis about the role of eating with your hands in Indian culture and how it can help parents find prized morsels in the post-meal detritus.

Plus, former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner discusses the scraps he most enjoys eating from his toddler's high chair, and Dan's own daughters demonstrate how they eat and share food with the grown-ups in a special Sporkful video. 

Hungry for more on eating while parenting? Join The Longest Shortest Time's Google+ Hangout on July 16, 2014. Hillary Frank will be moderating. Dan and pediatric dietitian Heidi Kecskemethy will be fielding your questions. Submit your questions and find out more here.
