Tuesday Toddler Tip - Set Your Child Up For Nutritional Success

It's still January, the month of food-based resolutions everywhere. It's not too late to consider how you can resolve to improve your little ones relationship with food. Want to foster a healthy relationship to food in your child?

Follow Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility concept: You, the parent, control the WHAT & the WHEN. The child controls the HOW MUCH?, and the “IF, AT ALL”!

Fundamental to parents’ job around the issue of the feeding relationship is trusting children to decide HOW much and WHETHER to eat. If parents do their jobs with feeding, children do their jobs with eating. They eat best when we give them the control we can!
