More Peas Please: Solutions for Feeding Fussy Eaters

Author(s): Kate Di Prima

Food for Children

The number of children with feeding problems, food fussiness or food group avoidance who are seeing health professionals has doubled in the last two years. Apart from a dislike of certain foods and an aversion to trying new things, some children refuse to eat 'lumpy' or 'slimy' foods. Not many people know there's a strong relationship between learning to chew and swallow and learning to talk. Likewise, there is a little-known connection between poor appetite, fussy eating habits and constipation. More Peas Please provides an across-the-board guide to helping children learn to happily eat a variety of healthy foods. It examines the importance of feeding kids a balanced diet, helping them overcome negative responses to certain foods, and the significance of early feeding experiences on speech development. It also contains loads of easy, fuss-free recipes for delicious, family-friendly meals.
