Picky Eating: The Division of Responsibility

Ellyn Satter is a dietitian and family therapist. Her mission is to show parents how to make feeding practical, positive, and joyful for them and their children. We want our children to eat well and grow up to be healthy. The way to achieve children’s wellness is to let them feel good about their eating.

When you follow the division of responsibility in feeding, your child will become and remain capable with eating. The division of responsibility encourages you to take leadership with the whatwhen, and where of feeding and let your child determine how much and whether to eat of what you provide
