This has been my most requested post for awhile. I’ve delayed writing it because feeding a toddler has gone like:
1. child asks for a popsicle
2. you give child a popsicle
3. child cries that you gave them a popsicle
4. parent confused
The short answer to how we’re feeding Jojo: Ellyn Satter. Ellyn offers a succinct explanation of feeding kids of all ages. I’m gonna be sharing more of the long-winded reality of feeding toddlers. We don’t follow everything recommended by Satter, but if you’re looking for how to maintain your child’s intuitive eating nature and raise a child who trusts their body, Ellyn and the below resources are great.
