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.
