Description

This practical guide enables those working with young children to better understand, manage and support children's relationship with food. Revealing the different ways in which children can relate to food, it gives accessible guidance and advice about how to help children to develop psychologically healthy eating habits and behaviours, and how to tackle feeding issues such as picky eating, obesity and food anxiety. Included is an easy-to-use reference section for trouble-shooting, which contains advice on how special needs such as autism can affect children's feelings about food.

Reviews

'If we are to tackle the obesity epidemic and, more importantly, build self-esteem and body confidence, we need to start working with young people from a very early age ... Cormack provides many practical ways to provide this nurturance, offering creative solutions to eating problems in young children and embedding these solutions within the practice of early years professionals. Case studies bring the book to life, making it accessible and very user-friendly. While it is aimed at professionals, I would recommend it to parents too.'
- Dr Nicola Davies, Health Psychologist, Counsellor, and Author

'Comprehensive guidance that will support the personal, social and emotional development of young children ... Both early years professionals and parents would benefit from reading this book.'

'Jo Cormack's book Helping Children Develop a Positive Relationship with Food does just that! [It] makes caring for children easier and more satisfying, and children will eat better for it. It's a win-win.'

'As a pediatric dietitian working with families on a variety of feeding issues, I am so thrilled Jo's book is now available ... I hope to see this timely resource on the desk of each child-minder, preschool and nursery teacher in the UK and beyond.'
