Foodie Friday: Interesting article on kids and eating

Posted on
Categories Feeding, Feeding Older Children, Foodie Fridays

The New York Times had an interesting article last week which identified six food “mistakes” that parents commonly make. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, check it out! I always enjoy gathering more information about the tricky topic of feeding and kids—-even if (or maybe especially if?) the information just confirms what I already know.

And, to see some ideas on cooking with kids, check out this older Foodie Friday post. Since writing that, we have started letting our 17 month old twins “help” cook—it’s too funny how excited they get to dump the flour in the bowl.

  1. A really good book on the same topic is “How to Get Your Kid to Eat: But Not Too Much” by Ellyn Satter. It goes into more detail about the topics listed above as well as providing information for people feeding kids with special issues (failure to thrive, obesity, oral aversions, etc.)

  2. I second the Ellyn Satter recommendation. Our kids have always been “good eaters”, but she has so many more great suggestions for adults and kids alike. I changed the way I offer food after reading her and the girls seem to enjoy eating even more.
