Anna Lutz and Elizabeth Davenport chat with McCall Dempsey, founder of Southern Smash, about parents who have their own history of an eating disorder and the ways in which that can make feeding a family challenging. 

They discuss:

  • The unique challenges faced by someone who has recovered from an eating disorder when feeding their children.
  • How being relaxed about sugar and processed foods can make feeding kids easier, and helps raise intuitive eaters.
  • The power of letting your kids know that it’s ok to not be ok.
  • Advice for parents who have struggled with an eating disorder and are afraid that their child will also develop an eating disorder. 


McCall Dempsey is a writer, speaker and founder of Southern Smash, a program of the National Alliance for Eating Disorders. McCall is an eating disorder survivor and passionate recovery advocate.
