Essential new strategies for parents to feed their baby-no matter baby's appetite-from groundbreaking research, introduced here for the first time Parents recognize that all children have different appetites: Some are voracious eaters, others are picky; some refuse to eat when they're cranky, others overeat. Despite this intuitive understanding, feeding recommendations have taken a one-size-fits-all approach. So, how can a parent know which type of eater they're dealing with, and how to ensure their child gets the nutrients they need? World-renowned, leading researchers Drs. Llewellyn and Syrad have discovered the answers to these questions and more-and now they present their discoveries in this parent-friendly handbook. An Appetite for Life demystifies the ways a child's food preferences develop in their first 1,000 days-in utero through their second birthday. Laying out essential nutrition guidelines, it describes ways to feed children with varying eating styles at every crucial stage of development-from milk-feeding to weaning to eating with the family. With evidence-based tips throughout, this book helps parents make informed choices about feeding their child during those critical early years, ultimately preparing them for lifelong good health.
