My Child Wont Eat: How to Prevent and Solve the Problem by Carlos GonzalezLa madre se dispone a dar de comer a su hijo mientras lo distrae con un juguete. Logra que se tome unas cucharadas y, de pronto, el nino pone en marcha su plan estrategico contra el exceso de comida: la primera linea de defensa consiste en cerrar la boca y girar la cabeza.Esta situacion, mas propia de un campo de batalla que de una actividad cotidiana, ilustra con humor la tesis central de este libro: la inapetencia es un problema de equilibrio entre lo que un nino come y lo que su madre espera que coma. Jamas hay que obligarle. Ni sobornos, ni estimulantes del apetito ni castigos. El nino sabe muy bien lo que necesita. Huyendo de los topicos sobre el tema, el pediatra Carlos Gonzalez, fundador y presidente de la Asociacion Catalana Pro Lactancia, desdramatiza el problema y, proporcionandonos claras pautas de conducta, tranquiliza a aquellas madres que sufren porque creen que su hijo no come correctamente.
