Most parents worry about their child's eating at some point. Common concerns include picky eating in toddlerhood, sweet cravings and vegetable avoidance in the early school years and dieting and worries about weight in the tween and teenage years.

The Gentle Eating Book will help parents to understand their child's eating habits at each age. Starting from birth, the book covers how to start your child off with the most positive approach to eating, whether they are breast or bottle-fed. Parents of older babies will find information about introducing solids, feeding at daycare and when to wean off of breast or formula milk.

For parents with toddlers and older children, Sarah includes advice on picky eating and food refusal, overeating, snacking and navigating eating at school, while parents of tweens and teens will find information on dieting, peer pressure, promoting a positive body image and preparing children for future eating independence.

At each age The Gentle Eating Book will help parents to feed their child in a manner that will set up positive eating habits for life.

Should be in your collection!


I loved this book- easy to read and interesting. My only 'downside' is I purchased as I have all her books. I feel like lots in the book is just an extended version of 'gentle parenting'- Sarah's general topic book. We haven't had any feed based issues yet but I wanted to finish my collection and be aware of possible future problems. In hindsight i'd wait until this was an issue and buy the book since i have the other ones. If you DO have issues BUY THIS NOW. Great read overall.
