Item description for Just Take a Bite by Lori Ernsperger, Tania Stegen-Hanson & Temple Grandin...
Is your child a "picky" eater or a full-fledged resistant eater? Does he or she eat only 3-20 foods, refusing all others? Eat from only one food group? Gag, tantrum, or become anxious if you introduce new foods? If so, you have a resistant eater. Learn the possible causes, when you need professional help, and how to deal with the behavior at home. Learn why "Don't play with your food!" and "Clean your plate!" - along with many other old saws - are just plain wrong. And who said you have to eat dessert last? Get ready to have some stereotypes shattered!

Reviews - What do customers think about Just Take a Bite?
Good book especially for children with aversion to eating Jun 11, 2008
This book talks more about the environment and social issues dealing with food. I was looking more for techniques to try with my 2 year old that doesn't like to eat solid foods...this book is more for 3 or 4 years old and older. Still a good reference for older children.
good choice May 22, 2008
I bought this book becasue my son has a gtube. And he has a big oral aversion and very sensitve to tastes and textures. Book provided a good understanding and how to cope and deal with this sitaution. A lot of good information and tips!!
A good start May 2, 2008
This book offers simple solutions that may help parents of children with straightforward eating problems. It does not reflect the potential complexity of these problems and is unlikely to offer support to those with the most serious problems
Disorganized but some good information Apr 14, 2008
This book has good information, but the format is very hard to follow. With the help of a good editor, I think the authors have valuable things to share that could benefit parents and professionals working with children who have feeding difficulties. The format alone made me close the book after 20 minutes and return it to this site. Too bad, because the authors have a lot of experience with putting these ideas into practice with real-life children.
EXCELLENT! Apr 5, 2008
I WISH I HAD KNOWN ABOUT THIS BOOK A LOOONG TIME AGO! RECOMMENDED BY OUR OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST, IT'S GREAT FOR PARENTS WHO HAVE CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES! A MUST FOR NEW PARENTS, BECAUSE EARLY INTERVENTION IS THE KEY!! EASY TO READ, VERY INFORMATIVE, GREAT TO GO BACK & REFERENCE!! PROUD PARENT OF A 6YR OLD WITH AUTISM!
