    How to Get Your “Binge Eating” Picky Toddler to Eat

    I originally wrote this as an ebook that I planned to sell. As a newbie with few skills, and with content that I truly believe is crucial for every parent to have, I decided to go ahead and put this on my site for free. My goal is to help you and your toddler as much as possible. The formatting certainly isn’t pretty, but why keep it to myself just to make a couple of bucks?

    This document speaks to parents and caregivers who are struggling with the eating habits and behaviors of toddlers. Toddlers are notorious for being picky, for binge eating, and for mysterious changes in eating habits. This book is based on my many years of professional experience working day-by-day as a social worker. It is also based on my years of experience as a parent — both working full-time and, later, staying-at-home. These are the strategies I have found that work for people of all income levels, in all environments. They are also the strategies that have worked with my own three daughters as they test my parenting skills every day.

    Please know that the information in this book is in no way medical advice or a substitute for any doctor’s instructions. Your relationship with your child’s pediatrician is of the utmost importance during the next years as you raise your child. I hope you will share the details with your pediatrician, and discuss with him/her any questions you have about parenting.

    At times your child might need special intervention. If you have a child with special needs, or if special circumstances arise, there may be medications, special nutrients, or procedures that are needed. If you have not already done so, please find yourself not only a pediatrician but also a team of people whom you trust - and let them help you. I encourage you to keep asking questions, and keep looking for the methods that are the most natural and least intrusive in providing treatment.

    It’s quite likely that you will need more information as you try to get your picky toddler to eat, and there are two books that I highly recommend. The first is Jessica Seinfeld’s book, . The second is less well-known but has more info on nutrition: . Both are excellent guides with lots of recipes.

    If I can help in any ways as a part of your team, please feel welcome to email me and let me know. If you have questions, comments, or thoughts you’d like to let me know I encourage you to email me. You can reach me directly at liz@HealthNutMom.com.
    I look forward to hearing from you!
