- The impact on children of public health programs and initiatives such as school nutrition curriculum, posters, media focusing on weight, and messaging in doctor’s offices, that are inherently weight-biased.
- Advice for parents of larger bodied children who might be concerned about their child’s weight and eating.
- Ways to navigate comments from other parents, family members, or healthcare professionals who judge parenting through a weight-biased lens.
- Things a parent can do or say if their child expresses concern about their body, or asks if they’re fat.
- How parents and caregivers can promote weight inclusivity and body positivity in their homes.
