Katharina  Fantl, Julia  Litschko - Your Child Eats Better Than You Think!


Finally being able to relax at the dinner table!

Starting at birth, children have a natural feeling of hunger and of being full. Many people will lose what is known as somatic intelligence early on, however. Thus for fear of not feeding their children properly, parents make so many rules that it is nearly impossible for children to stay true to their individual nutritional needs. Bad mood at mealtime, hunger from not eating, and eating habits influenced by certain emotions are just some of the things that can lead to anorexia or obesity.

Parents of course mean well: they orient themselves on food pyramids, medical recommendations, tips from other parents, or the latest scientific findings. What parents lack, however, is trust. Children are not behaving badly when they refuse to eat or want to eat at inappropriate or inconvenient times – such behaviour usually has rational explanations concerning the particular developmental stage. By accepting their children's decisions at the dinner table, parents allow their children to develop a relaxed relationship with food, which will benefit them later on in life as well.

• No more nutrition pyramids, forbidden sugars, or vegetable rules!

• The fascination of somatic intelligence: the body instinctively knows what it needs
