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?

"This splendid and easy-to-read book presents a common-sense approach to one of the biggest worries of parenthood. Dr. Gonzalez reminds us that children know a lot more about their nutritional needs than we give them credit for and that the problem is almost always ours, not theirs." Gill Rapley, co-author of Baby-led Weaning: Helping your baby to love good food
