Debbie Saroufim is a Body Acceptance Coach. Debbie was introduced to the idea of “good” and “bad” bodies by her mother, who struggled with an eating disorder, and by her tweens, Debbie had also developed one. After years of recovery and boundless personal growth, Debbie now works with women, teens, and tweens to help them make peace with their body, and build up their immunity to diet culture. Her newly published book, Fat and Beautiful: A book about why you can be both, is changing the way people speak to their children (and themselves!) about their bodies.

Nanny Neutrality: How to Stop the Cycle of Body Trauma in Our Youth

If you’ve ever said to a child “Eat your veggies so you can grow big and strong!”, this session is for you. Debbie Saroufim, a Body Acceptance Coach, is going to challenge us to think about how our choice of words about food impacts inner dialogue about bodies. She’ll also share how to identify body bias, actionable tools that can be used when we find ourselves or our kiddos triggered by body talk, and a game plan for moving forward into more peaceful mealtimes.
