Welcome - we’ve got you!
Hi parents, we are so glad you’re here. Just to set the tone from the outset – this is a guilt-free zone. There are no “should”s or shame here. We’re all doing our best (us included).
There’s no doubt about it, building a more positive body image in our kids can feel completely overwhelming. We’re here to make life easier with a range of resources to help you help your kids Embrace their bodies.
So, where to begin?
Take your kids to see the Embrace Kids film for an injection of inspiration, and then direct them to the sections for young people on the Embrace Hub. We have created developmentally-appropriate resources to empower kids to fuel, move, appreciate and be kind to their bodies in separate sections for younger tweens (9-12 year olds) and adolescents (13+ years). And just for you, we’ve recorded a podcast and written the Embrace Kids book!
Parents are a powerful influence on the way kids feel about themselves, and many of us know just how damaging it can be to feel shame about our bodies. We want something different for our kids – and the Embrace Hub is here to help you create this change.

Embrace Kids: The Book
Embrace Kids is the inspiring and practical new book from our very own dynamic duo, Taryn Brumfitt and Dr Zali Yager.
Embrace Kids is divided into two parts. The first section helps parents accept and appreciate their own bodies so they can role-model this to their kids. Part two combines stories and science to cover all the major areas of concern for parents, like managing the food environment and the influence of social media, peer drama and bullying.
This is a book for every parent who wants to do everything they can to help their kids be confident in who they are and how they look.
