While I’m on a mission to gather and share resources that are useful for the parent of the selective eater, there is one book in particular that is absolutely essential reading.
Love Me, Feed Me: The Adoptive Parent’s Guide to Ending the Worry About Weight, Picky Eating, Power Struggles and More
“…and more” there certainly is, and don’t let the “Adoptive Parent’s Guide” fool you. Inside, Dr. Katja Rowell shares her gentle, no-pressure feeding approach through families that have overcome mealtime challenges with their adopted children, many of whom had experienced severe neglect and starvation. As a physician specializing in feeding, Dr. Rowell provides sensible and encouraging insight on selective eating, under/over weight concerns, and day-to-day feeding challenges that can all be resolved by building trust in the parent-child feeding relationship.
From the bottom of our hearts, all of us here at the Hostage Homestead extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Katja Rowell for supporting us when we were most desperate for guidance and help. I speak from experience when I say that this is the book that will give you all the tools you need to feed your family with confidence, and put the enjoyment back in mealtimes.
