Product Description


Giving children a healthy start in life is a fantastic inheritance to pass on. This book tells you how. But it is very unusual.  Not only is it full of the latest scientific information, but it is also written by a psychologist who is a mother of two children. This means it is incredibly useful and packed with easy to follow tips and advice as well as authoritative science rather than passing fads. I recommend it strongly. — Stephen Scott FRCP FRCPsych CBE, Director, National Academy for Parenting Research Institute of Psychiatry, Kings′s College London This book understands the challenges today′s parents face. It provides in–depth and practical information that will help children grow up with healthy eating habits – and is also an extremely interesting and enjoyable read. — Kim Roberts, Chief Executive, HENRY (Health, Exercise, Nutrition for the Really Young) Jane Ogden brings her decades of knowledge and expertise together in a clear and accessible way in this important book. This wonderfully practical guide will help parents and families to lead healthier lives in which food plays a valuable role at the heart of the family without leading either to overweight or anxiety. — Prof Harry Rutter, founder, National Obesity Observatory for England

From the Back Cover

Why is feeding a child so difficult? This book answers a question that many parents find themselves asking on a daily basis. Hunger is a basic biological drive and eating should be an easy and delicious part of family life. Too often, it is anything but that. Based on 25 years of research into eating behavior, Jane Ogden offers straightforward advice for how to encourage children to develop a healthy, unproblematic approach to eating from birth through young adulthood. The book describes current theory and research and turns this into practical tips for use in every day family life.  It covers how children learn to like food, how habits are formed and can be changed, what children should be eating and how this can be helped to happen without making food into an issue.    She discusses common problems that parents face such as picky eating, under–eating, over eating, obesity, eating disorders and how to deal with a child who thinks they are fat. She also provides practical tips and solutions and some simple ways to feed a family a healthy diet. With insightful advice for one of the most complicated adventures in parenting, this guide is a must–have for any parent who wants their child’s relationship with food to thrive.
