More-Love.org is an online resource that empowers parents to raise kids who are free from body hate, disordered eating, and eating disorders. We educate parents about weight, food, and mental health and seek to reduce the fear and shame parents feel when their child has a problem with body hate, disordered eating, or an eating disorder. We believe full recovery from an eating disorder is possible, and we support a Health at Every Size approach.
We write articles to help parents understand body hate, disordered eating, and eating disorders. We hope these articles help parents have compassion for themselves and their children. You can view our articles HERE.
