Its simple method for dividing responsability in feeding makes everyone's life easier. Our favorite expression derives from the theories in this book: At the table we say "Eat it, Don't Eat it, Don't talk about it." Our kids know that this means that they don't have to eat anything they don't want but that no special meals will be made for them. We have desert every night and yes they get desert even if they don't eat dinner. Because there is no pressure or special reward, however, they usually choose to eat what is served, or some portion of it. The last things parents need is to battle with kids over food. This book will help you stop!
Since reading this book I have had 3 more children. And though they each have their eating preferences no one would ever call my children "picky eaters". I am constantly amazed at the great lengths my friends go to to get their children to eat or drink certain things. They seem to be equally amazed that I don't have to do the same with my own children.
This book gave me the strength and the "know-how" to get my kids to eat healthy without having to force them to.
Unlike the other books I got, I was able to read the whole book inside of a week, and was also able to read the specific chapters without needing to constantly reference others.
We have incorporated the philosophy and recommendations with our daughter and while she has only added one fruit to her diet on a regular basis, she is now at least willing to try a new food.
The one con I found was that Ms Satter referenced her other book "Child of Mine" quite often in the early chapters, and I felt that including a basic summary of it in its own chapter would have been very helpful.
I was not interested in having the rest of my life turned into a food battle ground, and this book helped permanently defuse any conflict. My parenting style is relaxed. My husband's style is old school. And my son is willful. Satter's recommendations worked for all of us.
