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 .

At last! Sound, professional advice on how children can build a healthy relationship to food. The best ideas always seem to be simple and here is a concept that appears blindingly obvious but is actually new: Emotionally Aware Feeding. Supported by research and observations within her own and other families, Jo Cormack explains clearly not just how mealtimes don't have to be a battleground but the importance of Emotionally Aware parenting generally, particularly of babies and young children. This alone makes it a must read. I love the conversational language, the technique of putting more detailed information in grey boxes and summarising crucial points at the end of each chapter. I find myself agreeing with her from my own experience and it struck home when I had to admit to having used every one of the 7 methods she lists for encouraging babies and children to eat (chapter 3, appropriately entitled 'Attention, please!') Even if you don't have children, this book will enlighten you on how your own attitude to food developed from infancy. The stress and strong emotions associated with meals when children are overly fussy or reject all attempts to introduce new foods is overwhelming. Emotionally charged mealtimes can become the norm. Now imagine a pleasant, sociable meal with your well behaved children, where they are enjoying their food and the atmosphere is relaxed. This may seem utopian to you now but by applying the techniques and principles from this book you have a hope of achieving it. NO MORE WAR and more peas please! (Note: this is NOT a book about your child's diet/what type of food to serve) War & Peas

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.

I'm not a fan of parenting books, simply because, as a parent of 3, I find I don't have the time or ware withal to plough through heavy-going books filled with detailed information, do's and don't's, examples etc... I rarely finish 2 pages before my eyelids are drooping and I find I would much rather spend my precious 'me-time' having a quick nap! This book, however, did not have that effect! It is interesting and informative. the chapters are short and concise which makes it easy to follow and everything is summed up at the end of the chapter and again at the end of the book. As a family, we are trying out the EAF method, particularly with our middle child, who is a very emotional soul at the best of times, so finding a way to separate eating and emotion appeals to me. Applying some basic rules at the table too, has also been useful for imposing good manners for all 3 kids. I definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting some help and some basic guidelines to good eating practice.

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.

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.

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.
