Research basis for SDOR: Resist Interference with Children’s Eating


A webinar for professionals by Ellyn Satter, MS, MSSW

To resist interference with fdSatter and the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding, you must understand the theoretical and practical flaws in today’s child-deficit research. This body of research characterizes children as having inborn obesogenic, health-obstructing characteristics such as being negative and impulsive with eating, being resistant to eating “healthy” food, and spontaneously eating too much and gaining too much weight. This child-deficit research says children eat more than they need when portions are big or food is high in fat and sugar. Such thinking contradicts sDOR and obligates parents to use direct and indirect means to get children to eat “healthy” food, restrict portion sizes, and avoid high-calorie foods. Child-deficit thinking produces common errors in feeding including misinterpreting normal eating and growth, cultivating agendas for what and/or how much children should eat, failing to provide leadership with feeding, and overlooking the impact of stress on eating and feeding. Ellyn Satter helps you figure out the logical mind-benders in this research, renews your trust in sDOR, and gives ample time for your questions and observations. Upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive 1.5 Level III CEUs from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

As the result of taking this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify common thinking that misinterprets and undermines children’s normal capabilities with eating and growth.
  • Describe how agendas for what and how much children eat interferes with their ability to eat as much as they need of a variety of food.
  • Recognize errors in feeding that are promoted by the theoretical and practical flaws in today’s child-deficit based research.
  • Recognize the relationship between stress and feeding dynamics.
