This book offers a fun guide to the science of children s eating and the effective techniques for encouraging healthy eaters.
This is a practical guide for mothers in how best to feed their young children from 0-5 years of age.Full of real life examples from mothers themselves about their difficulties with feeding and what worked for them, it provides reassurance, dispels some of the myths around child feeding, and attempts to dissipate maternal guilt about feeding. Covering the years from pregnancy to primary school, the book will help readers through the most potentially problematic and worrying stages of child feeding with evidence-based solutions to common problems.
Lucy Cooke and Laura Webber are psychologists specialising in child feeding. They met at the Health Behaviour Research Centre at University College London and discovered a mutual interest in the development of children s food preferences and eating behaviour. Together they developed and tested techniques aimed at helping parents and carers of young children to foster healthy eating habits and to take the worry and stress out of mealtimes.
