Reading this book has made me totally reassess how I feed my son and has taken the stress out of family mealtimes. The key messages in the book are:
Never force your child to eat
Offer him healthy food
Trust your child to eat what he *needs* to eat
I am now much more relaxed at mealtimes and my son actually eats more, with no tears or tantrums. Thoroughly recommended!

Understandably a little out of date but good ideas. Wish I'd read it while my first was still a baby as would have helped with breastfeeding and BLW
As with all gentle parenting books it's about managing your expectations rather than expecting miracles

With a 16 month old first child, meal times have been a big concern. Is he eating enough, is he eating the right things...grr he has refused vegetables again. This book cuts right to the point and I feel a lot more relaxed now.

My daughter eats nothing for real and she is 16 months old. This book helps me a lot to undertsand her and to learn what really a child needs. It makes me feel much better and releases my stress

Was disappointed as this book is really aimed at those thinking about conceiving a child through to weening. Had hoped it would help with school aged children that I look after but it didn't cover that age group.

The author takes a pretty condescending attitude towards parents who have concerns over their child's eating habits. As fas as he is concerned there is no problem, it is all in the mother's head (it is usually a mother that he cites) and children will eat if they are just left to get on with it. I'm sure this book would be fine if your child actually does eat and all you want is some reassurance that he/she is eating normally. All the examples in the book are of children who do eat good quantities albeit their mothers may be concerned if it is not enough or not of the "right" types of food. None of this resonated with me. My daughter does not like food. She was 15 months before she started eating solid food and now at 30 months she will eat enough to satisfy her hunger and then no more without persuasion. Enough to satisfy her hunger is a few teaspoons. Left to get on with it as the author suggests, my daughter will just lose weight (as has happened on numerous occasions) - not something that he has any suggestions for dealing with other than "take her to the doctor". I have and in the absence of any medical diagnosis I was looking for advice on how to deal with a child who actually won't eat. All I got was 180 patronising pages essentially telling me the problem was all mine and not my daughter's. I wouldn't recommend this if your child has a genuine problem with eating.

really interesting book about eating. not much practical advice but I lot of things to think about. I wish I had bought it before starting to feed my children as I think I would have done it differently. Author sets a nice reassuring tone which is not judgemental.

This has really helped me to look at my child's approach to food in a different light, one that is making our lives much happier. There are some excellent points regarding growth and development that I needed to know and the recent changes in our society expectations with regard to how much children eat is well covered. I recommend this to anyone who thinks their child is not eating enough.
