Overview

From deciding when to introduce solids to helping vegetarian teens make healthy choices, parents confront many issues when trying toget their children to eathealthy meals. This comprehensive book by Jill Castle and Maryann Jacobsen—both pediatric and family nutrition experts, bloggers, and mothers—explains how eating relates to a child's overall development, how to help children make good food choices, and how to end feeding struggles forever.

Castle and Jacobsen outline an inclusive approach to healthy feeding centered around the three Fearless Feeding Fundamentals: WHAT, HOW, and WHY. Fearless Feeding is an essential guide for parents of children of any age who want to

Understand how children's eating habits relate to their stage of physical and emotional development

Address specific concerns about picky eating, weight problems, eating disorders, food allergies, and more

Relax about feeding and take a "whole family" approach to meals

Fearless Feeding explores feeding kids at every stage of development in order to maximize health and growth and prevent unhealthy attitudes about food later in life.

"This book is a gold mine. Not only does it encompass everything parents need to know about feeding their children, it's written in a very accessible way. I will keep my copy handy and recommend it often."
Christopher Duggan, MD, MPH; director, Center for Nutrition at Boston Children's Hospital

"The authors consistently distinguish between parents' jobs in feeding and children's jobs with eating to give trustworthy advice that helps parents feed wisely and lovingly and raise children who are competent with eating. 'Satter's Division of Responsibility' in feeding is in good hands with these authors."
Ellyn Satter, author, Child of Mine: Feeding with Love and Good Sense
