About the Authors
After seeing too many children who have struggled and even “failed” feeding therapies, Katja Rowell MD and Jenny McGlothlin MS, SLP stopped wishing there was a go-to resource for parents of children with extreme picky eating and wrote it themselves. Katja is a medical doctor with expertise in relational and responsive feeding, and Jenny is an award-winning Speech Language Pathologist whose feeding program at the UT Dallas Callier Center combines oral-motor and sensory treatments with parent education on responsive feeding. Too many parents said, “It feels like our choice is fight over every bite, 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.”
“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!”
