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

I bought this book having read other books on the subject. My son's eating had become so limited and I sought advice from netmums. This book was recommended and I have to say it really has helped me and my son. It's not a huge tome and only took me a night to read but the advice inside is invaluable. It sets out a clear strategy that makes so much sense and the writer has a website and blog where you can seek advice also. We've changed our mealtimes using her ideas and things have really improved, after only a week. We even went out for lunch altogether and it was enjoyable! It's all about making eating a function and not a drama and this really is helping my son and me, after all I was the one making meals such a big deal!

I was looking for suggestions to help expand the range of foods that my 6 and 4 year olds eat. This book has been brilliant. It's full of interesting theory as well as practical suggestions, and is very quick and easy to read. Ideas can be implemented straight away and I have already seen improvements in what my children will eat. Very grateful to the author, and I hope to be able to maintain her ideas for the long term.

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.

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.

There is nothing not to like about this book. It is clearly written, easy to read and has exactly the right, evidence based advice. I work within infant and child nutrition and will be recommending this book to colleagues and families alike.
If you have a child who is a fussy eater - read the book, if you have toddlers - read the book and you will probably avoid many common pitfalls that face parents trying to feed their children.

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.

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 ›
