Harris and Shea have produced a fantastic resource for parents and professionals alike. Not only does this book give great advice to help children with food refusal and avoidant eating, but also covers the evidence base about the reasons underlying these behaviours in an accessible and enlightening way.

An important book full of information for professionals and parents who deal with 'fussy eaters' (many of them are on the autism spectrum). A useful read if you want to learn more about why some children (and adults) have problems related to food and the best strategies to successfully manage this.
This excellent book provides parents with detailed advice on how to help children with a restricted food range achieve a healthier and more balanced diet... The authors, who have both worked extensively with children with food refusal disorders, show the reader how to work with the condition in a child-centred way and gradually increase the food range a child can eat, with different interventions recommended according to age.
