Devanshi J. Patel: Fit Families, Thriving Kids — Tackling Childhood Obesity | Raising Parents #51

In today's discussion, we're tackling the complexities of defining and promoting health within families, especially when bombarded with conflicting messages and expectations.

From navigating various fitness regimens to deciphering nutritional advice, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about what truly constitutes a healthy lifestyle, especially when it comes to setting examples for our children.

Joining us in this enlightening conversation is Devanshi J. Patel, a clinical psychology doctoral candidate, joining us. Devanshi is currently in her final year of training, with her work focusing on social perceptions of parenting and investigating stigma towards parents, particularly those of children with "obesity."

With extensive experience in weight management clinics and individual work with parents and children, Devanshi brings valuable insights into addressing weight stigma and promoting positive family dynamics.

Stay tuned as we delve into practical strategies and targeted interventions to support families in fostering healthy habits and attitudes.
