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

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.

Format: Paperback
My son has always been extremely fussy when it comes to food and when it came to tackling it, I was going round in circles with no real strategy. That's when I came across Jo's book. She gives clear steps on how to deal with and how to allow your child to overcome their picky eating as well as dealing with the psycology behind it all.

This is not for children with medical issues behind their fussiness but Jo clearly sets this out at the beginning of the book. This is for those whose children have become stuck at that fussy toddler stage and need some practical advice about how to push their child past this in a loving way.

I have only been following the EAF (emotionally aware feeding) strategy for 2 days and already my son has eaten a carrot! Something he just would not touch before. I will report back in a few months to let you know how much further we have come!

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.

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.

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 would highly recommend this book, it is one of those 'I wish the health visitors would have given me a copy of this in the first few weeks of motherhood' type of books. Our 'fussy' eater is 5 and has always been tiny and skinny only just being within the normal healthy weight. After reading this book in one session we are implementing a few of the recommended changes. We believe that by trial and error we were already for the most part on the right track, now keeping meals relaxed with not (much) nagging on our part, and already having the 'no complaints about food' rule implemented a few weeks ago, however for the most part we were as a family (temporarily) only eating foods that our eldest and only fussy eater would tolerate (after sitting with her and making a list of tolerable foods out of sheer frustration and of course these mainly included pasta and chicken nuggets which I would rather avoid or at least see as an occasionally ok meal). Today we made a start on the new regime (we already explained a few weeks ago we were going to expand the foods to make it fair for everyone else and because she is getting so grown-up) and we had a very good day. I served two meals made up of previously rejected healthy cooked from scratch foods (including a Karmel recipe made up of chicken (which was always 'too chewy', basil ('I don't like it), parma ham ('I dont like bacon') and so we would have again been having buttered toast instead, and today, without a single complaint, only a few cooked cherry tomatoes remained on the plate of one of the meals. The others got cleared by all 4 of us which is a first! No comments about food at all at the dinner table, we just talked about the days events and I think my daughter didn't even notice she was eating at all....Read more ›
