Book Description

8 Jan 2014
If you are worried about your child’s picky eating, War & Peas has the answers you need. Therapist Jo Cormack turns conventional parenting techniques on their head, introducing readers to EAF (emotionally aware feeding). This is not a book about what to feed children, but how. EAF is a simple approach based on research and psychological theory. It will revolutionise the way you look at mealtimes and give you clear principles to follow. Once you understand the emotional and behavioural side of picky eating, you’re on the road to making mealtimes happy again. Who the book is for: War & Peas is primarily written for the parents of young children aged 18 months to eight years. It is aimed at families where there are no complex medical reasons for problematic eating but somehow feeding has gone awry.

Product Description

About the Author

Jo Cormack is a therapist specialising in working with children and adolescents. She is also mum to three daughters and has been a registered foster carer. Her interest in picky eating began when her eldest child was a toddler. Jo noticed striking parallels in the way in which her young daughter and her teenage clients with eating disorders used food to challenge boundaries and strive for control. She began to explore ways of disentangling food from feelings, and EAF was born. Jo blogs about picky eating at http://www.ea-feeding.com .

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 16 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Short but packed with really practical information. Really liked the summaries - key points are very clear. If like me you're also interested in theoretical background and research evidence - that's also there. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd read this a few years ago. 20 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book full of passages that made me go "Ahhh... That makes complete sense."

Just lots of things that I hadn't really thought about when it comes to child mealtimes, and I'm very glad that I have now.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This deserves a 5 star rating 15 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is topical at a time when children snack all the time and obesity levels are worrying. It is carefully researched and clearly written with chapters short enough for busy parents to read, and most useful summaries at the end of each chapter.

I have witnessed these hints in practice having seen Jo Cormack's young daughters eat their lunch without fuss or comment and with one asking for a second helping of cabbage.

The book deserves to be read by parents, grandparents, as well as nursery and infant teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for anyone you know with a small child! 23 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This well written book looks at picky eating from a different angle than I have read anywhere else, yet it makes perfect sense. It considers a subject that causes a lot of stress in many homes with young children and offers really sensible, practical guidance and solutions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 6 May 2014
By Fraser
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd definitely recommend this book. It's concise, clear and easy to understand and the key messages are repeated at the end of each chapter, which I liked. It has a good mixture of theoretical information and practical solutions and there's an accompanying blog which is also very useful.
