FIND HERE: tips on getting kids to eat more veggies this year instead of donuts - photo by Anna Migeon

Happy New Year, as we start 2011 helping you improve your child’s diet and appetite together!  Let me know how I can help you.

The top five Sacred Appetite reader favorite blog posts this year don’t even include my personal favorite: How to Get Kids to Eat at the Table, Part III. It comes in response to a reader’s question about how to get her kids to quit dawdling at the table. I think it’s underrated. It sums up well a key idea that I’ve formulated this year: instead of ever pushing food on kids, look for ways to pull food away, restrict their access to food, and don’t put up with bad behavior. It’s a plan that improves both behavior and eating habits.

I think it’s got some pretty good advice, if I do say so myself.
