"I have been reading the blog It’s Not About Nutrition and it has really changed the way I think about childhood nutrition and eating. If you have a picky eater I highly recommend that you check it out but know that it will challenge conventions like the “just two more bites” and using dessert as a reward for finishing dinner/cleaning ones plate.

"So, forgive me if you’re already a fan, but I just discovered It's Not About Nutrition, a blog written by Dina R. Rose, a mom with a PhD in sociology from Duke University who teaches workshops and provides private counseling on kid and food issues.   The blog covers “the art and science of teaching kids to eat right.”  It has a lot of advice on combatting pickiness but is a great resource for other food and nutrition issues as well.  Last night, as I was cruising around her site, I found myself nodding and thinking “amen, sister!” over and over again..."

"Dr Dina Rose argues at her blog, itsnotaboutnutrition.com, that our nutritional problems lie in our eating behaviors that are actually lifestyle patterns beginning in childhood.  And I would say that it's a bit of both I believe she is spot on about lifestyle nutritional behavior patterns being 80% of our nutritional problem..." Read more.  Dr Bill Dean.com, October 16, 2010.
