“Pediatrician Nimali Fernando and feeding therapist Melanie Potock take compassion and camaraderie to arm parents with knowledge and techniques” ---Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior

"With wisdom, wit, and candor, Dr. Nimali Fernando and Melanie Potock will take you on a fascinating journey into the mind and sensory system of your fickle eaters, helping you to understand why they taste, see, hear, touch, and experience the squeaky sound of a bite of broccoli differently than you do.” ---Daniel Feiten, MD, author of The Owner’s Manual for New Mothers

“Finally, a book that takes on the real root causes of picky eating. Best not to wait for picky eating to begin and read this book now, but if you already have terror at the table, help is on its way.” ---Kelly Dorfman, MS, LND, author of Cure Your Child with Food
