Emotional eating occurs when we use food as a coping mechanism to deal with the stresses in life. Oftentimes, feelings of shame and regret follow patterns of emotional eating.

Drs. Gene Beresin and Steven Schlozman break down what emotional eating is, where it comes from, and how parents can help their children learn how to use healthy coping mechanisms when faced with stress.
