Kids, Carrots, and Candy: A Practical, Positive Approach to Raising Children Free of Food and Weight Problems by Jane R. HirschmannThis book introduces the self-demand feeding method for all ages. The ideas in here go against what feels like good parenting, but the authors are knowledgeable and are backed up by current research. The jest of it is that kids should eat when they are hungry foods of their choice and stop eating when they are full. Sounds simple enough, but it really isnt for so many of us, especially those concerned about sugar and healthy foods. I had heard about this book years ago, but figured I already understood the ideas and didnt need to read it. I realized recently, though, that I was too involved (aka controlling) in my youngest sons food choices. This book was just what I needed, as I gives reasons for the self-demand feeding approach and suggestions for how to handle everyday situations we will likely encounter using it. I highly recommended it to parents of kids of any age, especially if you have any food issues yourself.
