"There are very few things that cause more anxiety for parents than their child's diet. Is my child eating health promoting foods? Is his weight gain adequate? Is her weight gain too much? Why does he gag whenever he gets a new food? In "Give Peas a Chance" Kate Samela provides an easy-to-understand, scientifically valid approach to feeding picky toddlers. Parents will now have a ready guide to the nutritional care of this challenging group, and can enjoy their child's culinary development rather than go crazy in the process." - Jeffrey S. Hyams, MD, Head of Digestive Diseases at Connecticut Children's Medical Center and Professor of Pediatrics at University of Connecticut School of Medicine
"As a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, I welcome this book. As a mother of two young girls, including a picky eater, I appreciate this book. As a former colleague, I celebrate this book. Kate is a gifted clinician who brings a wealth of knowledge on nutrition, growth and development and parenting support with humor and insight. She does so in a way we can all access, no matter what our role. Please pass the peas! " - Tracy S. Brundage, MOT, OTR/L, IBCLC, CIIM

Give Peas a Chance gives sound advice for everyday eating dilemmas: what to do when someone provides donut holes, why you shouldn't label your child a picky eater and the top 10 foods your toddler should be exposed to.
