My Child Won’t Eat
Parents everywhere worry when their baby or toddler doesn't seem to eat as much as they think he should. Carlos González, a paediatrician and father, sets those fears to rest as he explores the reasons why a child refuses food, the pitfalls of growth charts, and the ways that growth and activity affect a child's calorific needs. He discusses how eating problems start and how they can be avoided.
My Child Won't Eat includes mothers' stories of the anguish and torment they have gone through in trying to get their children to eat. Carlos González reassures parents that children know how much they need to eat and explains why a parent's only involvement should be in providing healthy food choices. Forcing a child to eat more than he needs can only lead to tears, tantrums and, eventually, possibly even obesity.
Questions Carlos González answers include:
- Why won’t my child eat?
- How much does a child need to eat?
- Why don’t children like vegetables?
- What does it mean to breastfeed on demand?
- When should my baby start to eat solid foods?
