Feeding with Love and Good Sense 18 Months through 6 Years
Feeding with Love and Good Sense: 18 months through 6 years “I can’t believe it is so simple,” says a parent who adopted Satter’s methods instead of putting her toddler on a diet. “The very day, the very first meal that I followed your advice, everything was better,” says another. Ellyn Satter has helped countless parents through the toddler and preschool phases in feeding with her best-selling books, videos, presentations, media events, and website publications. Feeding Your Toddler and Preschooler is the second of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series written by Ellyn Satter, Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized authority on child nutrition and feeding. In this remarkable book, Satter shows parents how to give themselves a break, head off feeding problems before they start, and raise healthy children who are a joy to feed. One in three children has feeding problems: s/he is a seriously picky eater, grows too fast or too slowly, has poor mealtime behavior, doesn’t eat fruits and vegetables or drink milk, or has special needs with feeding. Studies show that almost all parents pressure, reward, threaten, and bribe their children to eat. Many parents run themselves ragged to get food into their children, preparing special foods or separate meals or letting their children drink special formulas or eat junk food. There is a better and far simpler way. For decades, parents have found that feeding is simple and rewarding when they follow Satter’s Division of Responsibility. In the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series, Satter shows parents in words, pictures, and feeding stories how to do their jobs with feeding and let their children do their jobs with eating.
This booklet helps you master a kinder, gentler way of eating. It does for you what my colleagues, trainees, and I have often done in our respective practices with people who struggle with eating: help you become eating competent. Being a competent eater is feeling good about eating and doing a fine job with it-being relaxed and confident about taking good care of yourself with food. Throughout this booklet, I am careful to give you permission to eat as much as you want of food you enjoy. My Ellyn Satter Institute (ESI) colleagues, who are expert with eating competence and with helping with eating, contributed content and reviewed this manuscript again and again. Throughout, our emphasis is to give you strong permission to eat. At the same time, we carefully what we wrote to get rid of critical words and phrases-those that decode as "don't eat so much; don't eat what you enjoy."
This completely revised edition offers helpful, accessible advice to parents on feeding their children, from pre-natals to preteens, with a special section covering specific problems. Illustrations. Charts and tables.
