Aimee Ferrell, MD, and Melissa Gonzalez, PhD, join our host Stephanie to talk about the importance of children developing good eating habits early for a lifetime of health. From babies to toddlers and even to teenagers, parents can influence the choices their children make and ensure that they receive the proper nutrition needed for development.

Some of the questions answered in this episode:

  • How can parents develop good eating habits in children?
  • How does a parent know if there is a "feeding problem"?
  • What is normal pickiness in a child when it comes to eating?
  • How can parents avoid power struggles over eating?
  • What foods should parents monitor or restrict?
