About the Authors

After seeing too many children who have struggled and even “failed” feeding therapies, Katja Rowell MD and Jenny McGlothlin MS, SLP decided to stop wishing there was a go-to resource for parents of children with extreme picky eating and write it themselves. They bring a unique pairing of a medical doctor with expertise in relational and responsive feeding and an award-winning Speech Language Pathologist whose feeding program at the UT Dallas Callier Center combines oral-motor and sensory specific treatments with parent education about responsive feeding. Too many parents said, “It feels like our choice is fight to get him to eat, or give up and just serve his safe foods.”  Helping Your Child With Extreme Picky Eating shows you another way.

“Helping children feel good about food and their bodies is the best preventive medicine there is.”

Katja Rowell MD is a family doctor and childhood feeding specialist. Described as “academic, but warm and down to earth,” she is a popular speaker and blogger, writes on the intersection of feeding and wellness, and has appeared in numerous publications. Her first book is Love Me, Feed Me: the Adoptive Parents Guide to Ending the Worry About Weight, Picky Eating, Power Struggles and More.  Rowell enjoys camping with her family and cooking.

“The ultimate goal for me and for the parents I work with is this: trusting the child, reading her cues, and helping her trust you. The rest is just gravy!”
