about the authors

After seeing too many children who have struggled and even “failed” feeding therapies, Katja Rowell and Jenny McGlothlin 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  a Speech Language Pathologist whose responsive feeding program at the UT Dallas Callier Center combines oral-motor and sensory treatments with parent education. 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 preventive medicine.”

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 writer. 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!”

Jenny McGlothlin MS, CCC-SLP is a Speech-Language Pathologist partnering with families as a feeding therapist. She developed the STEPS feeding program at the UT Dallas Callier Center to support and promote feeding development in children,and provides training for graduate students, therapists, teachers, and parents. McGlothlin lives in Dallas with her husband and their three young children, and enjoys reading, spending time with friends, and rough-housing with her kids.
