If you are a parent, I’m sure some version of the words “why won’t my child eat???” have escaped your lips on at least one occasion. In my case, it’s way too often. Max, who is almost 4, is a terribly picky eater. Some examples of what he will eat: any breakfast food that resembles bread or pancakes, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, a variety of things with peanut butter and jelly on them, cereal. Examples of things he won’t eat: pasta, even mac & cheese; any sort of raw vegetable. And other people wi ...more

a really useful work for understanding and expanding my picky toddler's eating habits. i won't say he's quite eating like a french kid yet, but we've expanded the amount of vegetables he eats in a week, and things he'll try overall, so i'm sure he'll be pounding escargots and stinky cheese in no time. ...more

A helpful book. My son was having some digestive issues and this book helped to clear many of my concerns. A great reminder for myself to model good eating habits as your toddler will naturally follow what you do and eat.

Helped me to realized that my picky 15 month old is completely normal. Really helped me to understand just how much food he needs to be eating (a lot less than I thought). I loved all the tips and food suggestions that I was able to start implementing right away. It has only been a week and I already feel like my son's eating has improved and he seems to be gaining weight again. Highly recommended! ...more

I loved this book! It made me feel empowered about feeding my 17 month old, and made me realize that she is normal and not to expect too much from her. I also loved the different and easy ideas for lunch, breakfast, dinner, and snacks, because I often times get in a rut of feeding my daughter the same foods. Easy to read and understand; I recommend it to all moms of toddlers! I will probably purchase a copy of this book someday.

A good reference to what kids should be eating when. Nothing super original or any magic bullets on how to get kids to try new food (offering it a dozen times or more, etc), but some good hints on distracting kids when they say they are done/don't want it (ignore them and change the conversation to keep them in their seats).

I do appreciate the quick product recommendations (not just foods, but specific brands/items that she's vetted).

Looking forward to improving Evan's diet this year!

Has excellent background info on proper nutrition which is reassuring to know what is healthy or not. Also provides ideas on dealing with "picky eaters". More detail than I would have liked. Good skim read. ...more

Lots of good advice about getting a toddler to enjoy eating a variety of foods, with sound nutritional guidelines that aren't overwhelming. After reading this, I actually felt like I am raising a champion eater and have no reason to be anxious, but I will definitely use some of the suggestions. ...more
