Fearless Feeding: How to Raise Healthy Eaters From High Chair to High School (Paperback)
From deciding when to introduce solids to helping vegetarian teens make healthy choices, parents confront many issues when trying to get their children to eat healthy meals. This comprehensive book by Jill Castle and Maryann Jacobsen ― both pediatric and family nutrition experts ― explains how eating relates to a child's overall development, how to make balanced food choices (and help children make them too), and how to end feeding struggles forever.
Castle and Jacobsen outline an inclusive approach to healthy feeding centered around the three Fearless Feeding Fundamentals: WHAT, HOW, and WHY.
This newly updated and revised edition of Fearless Feeding explores feeding children at every stage of development in order to maximize health and growth and prevent unhealthy attitudes about food later in life.
