About the Author


Katja Rowell, MD, is a family doctor and childhood feeding specialist on a mission to support parents who worry about feeding and their child’s weight or growth. Known as “the Feeding Doctor,” she is a national expert on children, feeding, and the intersection of health and wellness. Rowell believes that helping children grow up to feel good about food and their bodies is the best preventive medicine there is. Described as “academic, but warm and down to earth,” she presents workshops to parents and professionals across the country. Rowell consults with a range of clients and writes on the importance of a healthy feeding relationship for online and print media. She has shared tips on how to bring peace back to meals through DVDs, TV, and radio, and is author of Love Me, Feed Me. Rowell makes her home in the Twin Cities, where she enjoys reading, camping, cooking (most of the time) for her family, and a husband who does the dishes.
 
Jenny McGlothlin, MS, CCC-SLP, is a certified speech-language pathologist specializing in the evaluation and treatment of feeding disorders for children from birth through the teen years. McGlothlin developed the STEPS feeding program at the Callier Center for Communication Disorders at University of Texas at Dallas, where she works with families on a daily basis to foster feeding skills that will serve a child for a lifetime.   Her passion is teaching children how to eat when they just can’t figure it out on their own, and McGlothlin has been inducted into the Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Hall of Fame for her work in the field. McGlothlin has spent many years teaching graduate-level courses on feeding as well as early child development. She frequently provides feeding workshops for parents and continuing education seminars and webinars for therapists. As a mother of three young children, McGlothlin makes family meals a priority, and enjoys reading and spending time with her friends.

Foreword writer Suzanne Evans Morris, PhD, is an internationally recognized speaker and therapist for infants and children with feeding and mealtime challenges. With more than fifty years’ experience as a speech-language pathologist specializing in feeding development and disorders in children, she pioneered the development of feeding and mealtime programs in the United States. Morris is coauthor of three books: Pre-Feeding Skills, the Mealtime Participation Guide, and the Homemade Blended Formula Handbook.
