Book Review from a Nutritionist

This week I am pleased to publish the review on my book done by a nutritionist and published on her website.  (see below link)  
I promise to get back to all of you soon on the usual issues around food, kids and eating! 


Get Rid of Child Eating Problems Once and For All
This month’s book review we are focusing on books dedicated to child eating problems and solutions (and one on Omega-3 Fatty Acids which also affects kids).

Take the Fight Out of Food: How to Prevent and Solve Your Child’s Eating Problems by Donna Fish, MS, LCSWThis book begins by encouraging parents to examine their own relationship with food. Fish says everyone has a “food legacy” that is all too easily passed down from one generation to the next. Fish also explains how the developmental stage and individual eating style of children affects eating. When the reader understands these important components of child eating problems, they are then taken through four steps for “eating for life.

”Taking the Fight Out of Food is more complex (which you may like or dislike depending on your preferences) thanSecrets in how it deals with feeding children – and the focus is more on the psychological aspects. I was really impressed with Fish’s strategies on how to resolve various eating problems in children – and it really opened up my eyes. The nutrition information is outdated because the book was published in 2005 right as the new dietary guidelines came out. The book is perfect for families with “problem eaters” whether they be finicky, controlling or overeaters – Fish will help you diagnose the problem.
