Sometimes learning to feed our children correctly seems
harder than learning to teach them to walk, talk or tie
their shoes. Not only must we overcome our own bad eating
habits, but learn about basic child psychology just to get
them to eat a carrot. It can be exhausting, and thatís when
it becomes oh, so easy to reach for the junk food.
Thatís when ďThe Brazelton WayĒ comes to the rescue, this
time with a book called Feeding Your Child, devoted entirely
to the proper feeding of children from birth to age five.
Americaís most trusted pediatrician, T. Berry Brazelton, has
once again teamed up with Harvard Medical School professor
of psychiatry Joshua D. Sparrow to offer parents all the
information they need to get children to eat the right
foods, at the right times, with minimal fuss.
Not only does this book detail the different food needs of
children from birth to childhood, but it also provides great
techniques for getting children to try new things, adapt to
feeding times, overcome food fears and so much more. AND
there is even a ton of info on how to avoid, and deal with,
food allergies and stomach ailments so typical in little
Chapters include "A Parentís First Job," "The Touchpoints of
Feeding," "Feeding Problems and Solutions," and cover just
about anything food-related you can imagine, including
breastfeeding, moving to solid foods, gagging and stomach
upsets, allergic reactions, vitamin supplementation and food
Once again, when it comes to raising children, nobody does
it better than the Brazelton team, and Feeding Your Child is
another great addition to any parentís bookshelf. Believe
me, it will get used.
