In this “speed round” of “The Parent Pep Talk,” a new podcast from Safe Kids Worldwide, dietician Deanna Busteed focuses on a variety of nutritional issues and answers questions about healthy eating habits such as: What to do if your kid won’t eat vegetables? Is fast food okay? Is organic food worth the expense?

Deanna Busteed is a registered dietitian with a Board Certification in Sports Nutrition. She brings more than 20 years of experience developing health and wellness programs as well as providing cutting-edge nutrition, fitness and wellness services to a wide variety of individuals and groups.

Also in the podcast, a teen panel answers a question about what to do if your child doesn’t want to try new foods, and one mom shares a story about her toddler’s favorite food: water. Plus, the Safe Kids Tip of the Week will get your kids excited about nutrition and keep them safe.

”The Parent Pep Talk” is a heartfelt and humorous podcast filled with advice and understanding from empathetic experts, honest parents and teens who are willing to talk. It’s for all parents looking for a little perspective, a few well-tested tips and the feeling that you’re probably doing a lot better than you think, even if it doesn’t always feel like it.
