The Parents' Guide to Eating Over the Sink

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Dan Pashman not only eats over the sink; he eats food that's been gummed by his baby

We all know that getting kids to eat healthy meals can be messy. But what about how YOU eat once you have kids? Dan Pashman of the Sporkful podcast tells host Hillary Frank how to make those 2.5 minutes scarfing down food over the sink as delicious as possible. But grosses her out in the process.

 He even has a ranking system for post-meal detritus.

Now that you've had a chance to reflect on your own eating habits, be sure to check out our Google+ Hangout on how to make mealtime happier. We'll be joined by Dan Pashman and pediatric dietitian Heidi Kecskemethy to help solve all of your kid + parent eating conundrums. You can submit questions here.
