Stop thinking about nutrition and start thinking about
your child's eating habits instead.
You already know how to give your kids healthy food. But the hard
part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working
with parents, Dina Rose, discovered a powerful truth: When parents
focus solely on nutrition, their kidssurprisinglyeat poorly. But
when families shift their emphasis to behaviors the skills and
habits kids are taughtthey learn to eat right.
Every child can learn to eat wellbut only if you show them how to
do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habitsproportion, variety, and
moderationall kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical
ways to teach these food skills. All children can learn:
How to confidently explore strange, new foods
How to know when they're hungry and when they're full
What to do when they say they're starving"and about to attend
a birthday party
How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more
mature tastes and textures: savory, tangy, runny, crunchy.
How to engage in open and honest talk about food without yelling
I don't like it!"
With It''s Not About the Broccoli, you can teach your
children how to eat, and give them the skills they need for a
lifetime of health and vitality.
