How to Practice Mindful Eating During the Holidays

I want my children to eat healthily and grow up with a healthy relationship with food. My youngest prefers fruits and veggies over sweets while my oldest would be happy to eat only chicken and bread for an eternity. Parenting both ends of the spectrum, at the same table, can be really tough. We had a meltdown one night at dinner. Afterwards, I was replaying the scene in my head, “why is it that one of my kids always says no to new foods while the other would nosh through almost anything and proudly ask for seconds or even thirds?” Is one behavior actually better than the other?
