Parents everywhere worry about what their babies and toddlers will and won't eat, and whether they are getting the nutrients they need. In My Child Won't Eat Dr Carlos Gonzalez, a renowned paediatrician and father of three, tackles these fears, exploring why some children refuse food, the pitfalls of growth charts, and how growth and activity affect a child's appetite and nutritional needs. He explains how eating problems start and how they can be avoided, and reassures parents that their only job is to provide healthy food choices: trying to force a child to eat more is a recipe for disaster and can lead to tears and tantrums and even health problems in later life. With real-life case studies, and a calm and practical tone, My Child Won't Eat will answer many questions parents have about feeding their young children, from breastfeeding and introducing solid foods, to encouraging older children to eat vegetables.
