Happy Mealtimes with Happy Kids:
How to Teach Your Child About the Joy of Food!
"Happy Mealtimes" is written by Melanie Potock, MA, CCC-SLP, a certified speech language pathologist who has devoted much of her career to working with young children with feeding difficulties. "Happy Mealtimes" is a unique guidebook for new and not-so-new parents. Melanie created an easy to follow feeding guidebook that provides not only the basics such as proper positioning in a high chair and learning to drink from a straw, but professional secrets on how to encourage your child to eat a variety of foods while fostering enjoyable mealtimes.
Parenting two preschoolers while attending graduate school taught Melanie one very obvious fact; parents have very little extra time to read anything more than a few pages! Designed to be read a few pages at a time, Happy Mealtimes provides efficient delivery of helpful tips that every parent can benefit from.
