Overview

A groundbreaking approach to picky eating, by the originators of the technique: Initially developed by co-author Cheri Fraker, in the course of raising an 11 year old who ate nothing but peanut butter and breads and drank milk, the food-chaining technique was subsequently developed into a comprehensive, non-threatening treatment approach that can be used by parents, no matter what the nature of their child’s picky-eating.

A comprehensive guide to the approach—which also includes a preventive component, for keeping children from developing into picky eaters: Food chaining emphasizes the relationship between food items in regard to taste, temperature and texture. Targeted food items are selected that are very similar to foods the child currently accepts without difficulty and adds variety to the diet gradually expanding out to all food groups. Also covered is the concept of pre-chaining, which works to prevent food aversions before they can develop.

Food-chaining is already being recognized as a media-worthy development: In 2005 articles focusing on the technique appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune and Self magazine—as journalists recognized this as a breakthrough approach for dealing with picky eating in children (as well as adults).

    Excellent resource. Focuses on infants and toddlers with helpful suggestions for teens too.

    I bought this book after reading an excellent article in Parent's magazine regarding picky eaters. I have a 14 year old picky eater. I wish I'd had this book 13 years ago.

    Food chaining is so logical. I wish I'd thought of it! I like how the authors cover every aspect of picky eaters. They include many professionals in the feeding team. (They themselves are most of the professionals that make up a feeding team). That didn't work for me as the feeding team in the neighboring large city only works with infants and toddlers, not teens. However, the first stop is the Pediatrician and our Ped. worked with us and with lab results I have a solid start.

    The examples and case scenarios in the book were detailed enough that I am able to start a few food chains on my own and we have had more progress in the last week than in the last couple of years. If you have any concerns about your child's eating habits, I would absolutely recommend this book. The sooner you read it and get started, the better!
