    Dialogues on...Children at Every Stage: Healthy Eating or Eating Disorders?

    Wednesday, April 10, 2013

    "Dialogues on...Children at Every Stage: Healthy Eating or Eating Disorders?" with Susan Sherkow, M.D.

    Because there is nothing more intrinsic to development than eating, parents can become pre-occupied from the moment their child is born with how, what, and when to feed their baby. Often, the concerns about how, what, and when to feed their children persist throughout the developmental stages of toddlerhood, the grammar school years, and adolescence. What can experts teach us about how much control parents have in promoting healthy eating habits and avoid eating disturbances?
