Getting to YUM is a practical and engaging guide for parents eager to get past their children's food resistance—or avoid it altogether. It introduces 7 Secrets of Raising Eager Eaters (Secret 1: Teach your child to eat, just like you teach them to read! or Secret 6: Teach me to do it myself: kid participation is every parent's secret weapon).
“Any parent eager to get kids to eat vegetables must read this instant classic right now. Getting to YUM celebrates the fun and joy of parenting—even of picky eaters. This book makes it a pleasure to teach kids about delicious food, encourage healthier eating habits, and counter the relentless marketing of junk food, without ever turning the dinner table into a battlefield.” — MARION NESTLE, author of Eat Drink Vote: An Illustrated Guide to Food Politics
“Get ready for children who have healthy attitudes toward food and not only eat their veggies but like them, too. I absolutely love the idea of teaching them to eat well through the Taste Training program—a true ‘fix’ for picky eaters!” — LISA LEAKE, author of 100 Days of Real Food
