Definitive text on childhood eating

You are going to hear me refer to this book a LOT! I am becoming an even bigger fan of Sarah Ockwell-Smith with each new book she releases. But this Gentle Eating one is truly fantastic.

She takes you through every stage - including why and how we eat - from breastfeeding, breastmilk-feeding a formula-feeding, through introducing solids (including BLW) to selctive and picky toddler eating (and why a lot of that is perfectly normal) through school aged children and teens. She talks about parents own experiences around food and body image and how that can impact on our children and much more.

I have the audio book on the go in the car and bought the e-book as well so I can highlight and copy passages to share, because there is just so much evidence-based wisdom in here

Read this book.
