Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating 2021
Written by a family doctor specializing in childhood feeding and a speech pathologist, they teach counselors how to help families assure a child’s healthy nutrition and growth, while ending mealtime anxiety and stress. Use with children who only eat dry foods not wet ones, only tortilla chips and other crisp foods, only white foods, or only fast food hamburgers regularly.
A masterpiece of practical strategies, compassion, and reassurance… Jessica Setnick, MS, RD, CEDRD
