"This is an amazing resource for the practitioner. The emphasis on nutrition and feeding approaches for the autism spectrum child, along with mindful parenting approaches for the caregiver--complete with dialogue and activities--enable the practitioner to address the needs of the whole family. I have been increasingly seeing this type of patient in my clinics. This resource will be highly beneficial to my practice and the providers I work with.”

--JoAnna Siciliano, RD, LDN, Children's Hospital University of Illinois (CHUI)

“As a feeding specialist, I found this book to be an invaluable resource for those professionals wanting to widen their breadth of practice with parent coaching and new food exposures for their clients. The practical advice given to help parents navigate the feeding relationship coupled with the clever feeding activities will enrich any practice with feeding therapy.”

--Lea Peyton Gebhardt, Phd, RDN, LDN, Pediatric Feeding Specialist and Owner, Pantry Medicine, http://pantrymedicine.com

This book welcomes the whole family to the table, and breaks down the steps to getting your clients to better participate in mealtimes, and to interact with foods in a variety of ways.”
