Helping Children Develop a Positive Relationship with Food

By Jo Cormack (Jessica Kingsley, £14.99)


About a quarter of children are considered ‘picky eaters’, while obesity is on the rise. This book uses evidence to give practical guidance about how to support children’s physical and psychological health when it comes to food, explaining the different ways children relate to food, and how eating is often treated as a behaviour to be controlled rather than trusting the child to learn to understand and respond to the signals from their body and brain. Includes advice on understanding our own relationship with food, nutrition, autism, and staff training. Also features a reference section for trouble-shooting.
