This week, Amy shares her evolution on how she feeds her own kids —from waging war on Goldfish crackers and packing "better" food for her first kiddo to bring to daycare (where lunch was provided) to her current kitchen where Goldfish and applesauce pouches live happily next to bananas and homemade snacks. She's still pretty OCD about cooking (it i…

NOTE: We recorded this episode before the murder of George Floyd and subsequent protests, so you won't hear that discussed here.

We're on pandemic hiatus, but rebroadcasting some of our favorite episodes — that seem super useful right now! Why do most men do so little at home — and especially in the kitchen?

M&Ms for going potty; a lollipop at the end of soccer practice; dessert for eating dinner; a pizza party prize from the PTA — these are just a few of the ways that parents and teachers use treat foods to reward kids for good behavior.
