Is it responsible to follow Satter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding (sDOR)?
From the perspective of the Satter Feeding Dynamics Model, children are competent with respect to eating: They intuitively eat the amount they need to grow in the way that is right for them. As long as parents follow Satter’s division of responsibility in feeding (sDOR), children can be trusted to regulate their food intake.
At the other extreme, today’s research characterizes children as lacking self control, enjoying eating too much, and having trouble stopping, especially if portions are big or food is high in calories. Thinking along these lines means parents must supervise children to see that they don’t eat too much, restrict portion sizes, push fruits and vegetables, avoid high-calorie foods.
