Overview

Stop thinking about nutrition and start thinking about your child’s eating habits instead.


You already know how to give your kids healthy food. But the hard part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working with parents, Dina Rose, discovered a powerful truth: When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids—surprisingly—eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught—they learn to eat right.


Every child can learn to eat well—but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits—proportion, variety, and moderation—all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills. All children can learn:


• How to confidently explore strange, new foods

• How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full

• What to do when they say they’re “starving”—and about to attend a birthday party

• How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures: savory, tangy, runny, crunchy.

• How to engage in open and honest talk about food without yelling “I don’t like it!”


With It's Not About the Broccoli, you can teach your children how to eat, and give them the skills they need for a lifetime of health and vitality.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/16/2013
Sociologist Rose takes an innovative approach to children’s eating; her premise is that the more parents focus on nutrition, the less healthfully kids eat. The mother of a 12-year-old daughter, Rose points out that most American children eat poorly in spite—or perhaps because of—what she calls the “nutrition mindset” of many parents. “Agony” over nutrition, she asserts, can lead to overeating, picky or junky eating, and stress. Rose presents a thoughtfully crafted plan (the Teaching Approach) to form basic habits that focus on proportion, variety, and moderation. She helps parents identify their own eating hang ups when it comes to feeding their children (i.e. nurturer, food police, nutritionista) and then provides methods of helping children establish habits they can carry into adulthood. “The Big Fix,” for instance, calls for “Eating Zones” (times when eating takes place), “The Rotation Rule” (no food served two days in a row with the exception of milk), and giving children choices. Rose walks readers through her Teaching Approach step-by-step, using scenarios that illustrate issues and hands-on solutions. Creative and clever, Rose comes to the table with a fresh perspective and a practical plan for teaching kids lifelong healthy eating habits. Agent: Betsy Amster, Betsy Amster Literary Enterprises.
