Lecture Overview

Although toddlers are a delightful and trying challenge, food provides a perfect medium for the struggle for independence. Many toddlers use food to test their power, but others can create scenarios that gradually restrict their diet by avoiding new foods, or creating meal times that are a nightmare for the whole family.

A great presentation. I particularly liked the anecdotes of patients or family members in regard to eating. Some great tips!

I recommend this education to every single person who has to try to feed a child. It should be part of prenatal care
