“Broccoli Boot Camp is a comprehensive guide for parents of children who are selective or picky eaters, and can be used with children with or without special needs (e.g, autism or Down syndrome). It presents common sense behavioral interventions to successfully expand children’s diet variety and preferences for healthy foods.
“The book starts with the simple premise that when children are encouraged to taste and consume tiny portions of new foods, repeatedly and with lessening resistance, they learn to accept and enjoy the foods as part of their regular diets. Real-life, compelling case studies and abundant research findings support the authors’ advice on how to overcome a child’s selective eating. The book describes ways to increase compliance, factors to consider when choosing an intervention, and strategies to shape behavior.” -publisher
