Preventing Child Overweight and Obesity:  

Raising Children to be Competent Eaters

Ellyn Satter, MS, RD, LCSW, BCD

 

Description

Child overweight can be prevented from birth through preteen years with optimum, stage-related feeding based on Satter’s Division of Responsibility with feeding. Child weight acceleration can be neutralized by correcting feeding problems and restoring optimum feeding. Optimum feeding raises children to be competent eaters, to enjoy eating, to have positive food acceptance and food regulation skills, and to participate happily in family meals.

  • Understand the connection between eating competence and child obesity prevention.
  • Learn how to incorporate positive, practical obesity prevention strategies into routine education and practice.
