Child-led dietary diversification

Original Title

Petites mains, grande assiette La diversification alimentaire menée par l'enfant

A new revised and expanded edition of this dietary approach in which babies feed themselves, without going through the mashed food stage.

With child-led dietary diversification (CLD), we say #byebyepurees! As soon as solids are introduced, babies eat foods cut into pieces for them, on their own, without help. They feed themselves at the table at the same time as other members of the family and share the same balanced meals. Infants thus develop their abilities at their own speed and learn to recognize when they are hungry and when they are full. With this approach and the active participation of those around them, babies adopt healthy food habits they can maintain throughout life. This guide will assist parents, families, friends, early childhood educators and healthcare professionals in the great CLD adventure by answering a range of questions, including:

• What are the advantages and fears associated with CLD?
• What are the different stages of CLD?
• How do you limit the risk of choking?
• How do you offer a balanced diet?
• What are the medical issues to watch out for?

This new edition of the 2016 best-seller paints the most complete picture possible of CLD and takes stock of current knowledge. It includes all the elements essential to a thorough understanding of this approach, as well as a variety of information on infant diet and development. More than just a technique, it's a comprehensive approach centred on baby's self-sufficiency!

•A new format and refreshed layout, in colour.
•An additional 48 pages providing for a complete update of this best-selling method. •Thirty photos illustrating 60 delicious recipes, and useful material to make it easier to implement CLD. See complete product information (French)
