Ms Schooler covers which vegies you should be serving up, how many, and cracks a few myths along the way. Did you know that vegies make you smarter, nicer and better looking? Love it. Like I said, funny and with a solid knowledge base. Just perfect. Can't wait to pass this book on to some of my friends with their own littlies.
Oh yeah, before I forget- this book is packed full of goals, strategies and patterns for getting your fussy eater to actually eat those awesome vegies. Sorry I got side-tracked by all the other great info. Enjoy- I did!
Her main focus with this book is to get your child to eat more vegetables, every day! She shows real insight into child behavior and mental processed, and shares many tips and tricks on how to get children to eat vegetables, even when they decided they won't!
I especially loved Chapter 4, where the author addresses different common beliefs about food! Our mindset when it comes to food is critical, especially when we talk to our children! There are so many misconceptions our generation grew up with - as wonderful as our parents were and are! For example labeling children as picky eaters - not a good idea, and the author explains that labels stick, and offers a healthy alternative!
I also really enjoyed her perspective on "The Clean Plate" - really important! I grew up having to clean my plate and I still do it, independently of how hungry I am! It's critical that we give children more freedom and allow them to become aware of how much they can eat, and not force them to eat what we think they should! It's a back and forth and finding the perfect balance, while maintaining a healthy mindset about food!
I highly recommend this insightful book to get your child to eat more vegetables! Their health is important, and the author has packed this book with practical, relatable, well researched, and easy to read information, tips, tricks, and stories!
I was happy to see that Ms. Schooler addresses the emotions associated with the child as well as the parent. She writes about how the parent is afraid his/her child will be malnourished, which is something most parents are concerned about. She also discusses tantrums associated with children being hungry. She calls this a “hangry” tantrum.
There are three other things the author includes which I think are extremely important: introducing new vegetables a little at a time; making meal time a happy time; and not forcing a child to eat everything on his/her plate.
This is an excellent resource for any parent facing the age-old issue of a child not wanting to and even refusing to eat vegetables and an excellent guide to understand the importance of good nutrition.
Her style is straightforward, to the point and witty, and you feel like she really gets you and your kid(s) (which she does because everything she shares comes from her own experience and trial and error). Helping kids to eat healthy foods, especially vegetables, is critical for both short-term and long-term health, making Ms. Schooler's book a must-have and a must-read for parents.
This book addresses issues that may be influencing a child's picky eating habits such a emotions and power struggles, as well as what beliefs about food, meals, and eating that may be influencing our responses to their pickiness.
You will also gain insight into healthy benefits for children of making vegetables a regular part of their diet. You will also learn how to make a plan and implement it, as well as clever ideas to help with commitment to the plan and follow through.
While our children are adults now, we have several grand children who are younger and our diets consist mostly of vegetarian fare. It's great to have new ideas for getting the children in our life to not only try and eat healthier food, but to enjoy it too. Thank you to Julie Schooler for another great title for parents and grandparents, and anyone else who has small children in their life.
