Eating Behaviors of the Young Child: Prenatal and Postnatal Influences for Healthy Eating by William Dietz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Feeding an infant or toddler a varied, healthful diet is one of the most important - and often most challenging - tasks of early parenting. The research tells us that most parents and children learn this dance well - and their children transition smoothly from breast and bottle feeding to solid foods and a sound family diet. But an increasing number of parents and children falter, resulting in poor eating habits for a lifetime.Developed by national and international child health and nutrition experts, the new "Eating Behaviors of the Young Child" represents the most recent advances in knowledge of the factors that influence early eating patterns. Designed for pediatricians and other child health care professionals who treat children, this handy resource provides educational tools for parents and caregivers to help children develop healthier eating behaviors during their early years of life.The topics addressed include: Breastfeeding vs Bottle; The Transition to Table Food; Food Preferences Among Young Children; Cultural Influences on Children's Food Preferences; Changes in Eating Environments; and Intervening to Prevent Obesity and Shape Healthy Diets.
