    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!
