This is the first in a series of five stage-related booklets on feeding children. The primary target audience is parents in the private sector. Unlike parents who qualify for WIC, Head Start, or SNAP, these parents receive little or no consistent, authoritative, and useful feeding and nutrition information.

1. Where you are going with feeding. Think of your child as a future toddler. By 8 to 18 months, your tiny baby will be a good eater and ready to join in when you have family-friendly meals.

2. Follow the division of responsibility. To raise a good eater, do your jobs with feeding and parenting, then trust your child to do her jobs with eating, moving, and growing.

3. Understand your child’s development and temperament. Being able to recognize stages in development and understand temperament lets you trust and enjoy your child and parent in the best way.

4. How to feed your newborn and infant. Your baby eats best and feels best about you—and about eating—when you pay attention to her and do what she wants.

5. How to feed your older baby and toddler. Start and progress solid foods based on what your baby can do, not how old he is. Rules about when and what to feed make you ignore your baby and doubt your judgment.

6. What to feed your child: step by step. Your child might progress from starting solids to joining in with family meals in a couple of months, or it may take a year or more. Go as fast or as slowly as is right for her.

7. Solve feeding problems. The too-big  or too-small child, the picky eater, the child who eats poorly, the child who won’t drink milk or eat vegetables, the child with special needs.

8. What you have learned. Feeding is parenting in all ways. You have to do your jobs, but then you have to let go. Throughout the growing-up years, maintain a division of responsibility in feeding.
