en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – February 2012
Parents everywhere worry when their baby or toddler doesn't seem to eat as much as they think he should. Carlos Gonzalez, a paediatrician and father, sets those fears to rest as he explores the reasons why a child refuses food, the pitfalls of growth charts, and the ways that growth and activity affect a child's caloric needs. He discusses how eating problems start and how they can be avoided. My Child Won't Eat includes mother's stories of the anguish and torment they have gone through in trying to get their children to eat. Carlos Gonzalez reassures parents that children know how much they need to eat and explains why a parent's only involvement should be providing healthy food choices. Forcing a child to eat more than he needs can only lead to teats, tantrums, and eventually, possibly even obesity. Questions Carlos Gonzalez answers include: Why won't my child eat? How much does a child need to eat? Why don't children like vegetables? What does it mean to breastfeed on demand? When should my baby start to eat solid foods?
