Tasting the problematic rainbow of Kids Eat in Color. Plus: Are baggy, black clothes comfy or fatphobic? It's March Extra Butter!

Welcome to Indulgence Gospel After Dark!

It’s time for your March Extra Butter. This month we’re answering a reader question about baggy, black clothes. Then Virginia takes Corinne down a rabbit hole to unpack the rainbow produce, and subtle food- and fat-shaming, of Kids Eat in Color.

To listen to the full episode and read the full transcript, you’ll need to join Extra Butter, our premium subscription tier.

Extra Butter now costs just $99 per year.

If you are current paid subscriber, the remaining value of your subscription will be deducted from that total. We’ve had some (very understandable!) confusion about this, so I asked Substack to break it down:
  • If you JUST subscribed (like, yesterday) for $50, you’ll take that full $50 off the Extra Butter price.

  • If you’re halfway through your annual membership, you’ll get $25 off the Extra Butter price.

  • If you’re at some other point in your subscription, or paying monthly, your mileage will vary, but you’ll still get some kind of discount.

  • No matter when you joined us, upgrading to Extra Butter extends your subscription by a full year. So you’ll be renewing your membership AND getting more content.

In addition to these monthly episodes (where we get into juicy stuff like the anti-diet to alt-right pipeline, a truly bonkers TikTok diet and my post-divorce body), you’ll also get a comp to and access to our monthly live thread discussions — our next one is next Wednesday at 12pm Eastern!
Plus Extra Butter ensures that the Burnt Toast community can always stay an ad- and sponsor-free space—which is crucial for body liberation journalism. Join us here!

Okay, we're going to start today with a listener question, and then we're going to dive into one of the influencers that you all ask us about most often. 


You might call her the Ballerina Farm of kid food influencing. I'm really proud of that little teaser there, just so you know.
