Maryann Jacobsen puts forward such simple and SMART ideas for creating healthy mealtime practices and household norms around eating. As a society, we have over complicated eating. Jacobsen reminds us of the family meal foundations that are important on so many levels. I highly recommend this book.
Since reading How to Raise a Mindful Eater, I've read Jacoben's What to Make for Dinner with Kids and Fearless Feeding. All are outstanding resources for anyone who feeds children. All of these books have been empowering and truly helpful.
This book was an “aha” moment for me- it answered so many questions that I had and also gave a new perspective that I had not seen before. It made me rethink the way I relate to food and has helped me start to work toward an intuitive eating mindset vs good/ bad foods.
The book in combination with the authors website and willingness to answer questions from her blog would be a gift for any parent struggling with these issues.
I was really beginning to worry that my kid might be heading toward the all-too-common slide into obesity. Restricting access to food only made it worse. And he is clearly struggling with this in his pre-pubescent age which is already tormented in a million other ways. But within a month he's starting to talk about how food makes him feel, helps him to think, fuels his activities.
We've only just started this learning period for both of us, but I'm finally optimistic.
