Description

Baby Food Matters makes feeding your child easier. This book sorts through the conflicting advice and includes practical, easy-to-follow guidance on what and how to feed your baby in those all-important first thousand days - from pregnancy to their second birthday. The quality of nutrition a child receives and the way they are fed can have a lasting impact on their future health. Dr Clare Llewellyn and Dr Hayley Syrad, both scientific leaders in this field having published over 100 scientific papers on the topic, separate the myths from the facts and draw on the very latest research to help you decide what is best for your child when it comes to developing healthy eating habits. Baby Food Matters lays out essential nutrition for all infants and toddlers, and describes ways of feeding children with varying eating styles at every crucial stage - from milk-feeding to weaning to eating with the family. Clare and Hayley debate the benefits of breast milk vs. formula milk, explain how to introduce solid foods to your child in a way that will help foster healthy food preferences, suggest strategies for managing fussy eaters and eager eaters, and offer portion size guidance. This important book will help parents make informed choices about how and what to feed their child - and reassure them each step of the way.

Author Biography

Dr Clare Llewellyn is a Chartered Psychologist and Lecturer in Behavioural Obesity Research at University College London, where she leads the Obesity research group, and the Gemini twin study. She has a long-standing fascination with eating behaviour, which probably stems from having been a notoriously fussy eater as a child. A decade ago she helped establish Gemini, the largest twin study ever set up to explore the 'nature and nurture' of eating behaviour from the beginning of life. She has published more than 70 scientific papers and book chapters on this topic, and has given over 40 invited talks worldwide at prestigious organisations, such as the Royal Society of Medicine. She has won a number of international awards for her research from organisations such as the UK Association for the Study of Obesity, the European Association for the Study of Obesity, and The Obesity Society in the US. Dr Hayley Syrad is a chartered Psychologist. She gained a First Class Psychology Bachelors Degree at The University of Southampton in 2007, and a PhD in behavioural nutrition at the Health Behaviour Research Centre, University College London in 2016. Her research has focused on the role of appetite in relation to what and how young children eat, and she has published a number of articles on infant and toddler feeding in high impact journals. Her work has received a huge amount of media interest.
