Book Blurb -Eat.Delete.Junior by Pooja Makhija

For parents who have a lot on their plate. Children are question marks. Bawling, cooing, spit-blowing question marks. How long should you breastfeed your baby? Will he sleep through the night? How should you start your child off on solid foods? Will she grow up into a responsible adult? While many of life’s riddles are difficult to solve, celebrity nutritionist Pooja Makhija addresses one vital question with an insight, and humour, few others have: the question of child nutrition. What you feed your children is only one aspect of nourishment; how they eat is another. Focused on the psychology of eating and keeping a child’s unique bio-individuality in mind, this sequel to Pooja’s best-selling Eat Delete sheds light on how a child’s palate develops, methods to keep junk food at bay, and the habits needed to prevent ill-health and obesity. It also teaches you that while correct eating is paramount, it’s okay to bend the rules occasionally if you keep in mind the big picture: that if you teach kids good nutritional habits when they are young, they will take nutritionally responsible decisions as adults. Woven through with fables and fairy tales, and separating the facts from family myth, Eat Delete Junior will help parents emerge victorious over the ultimate child-rearing battleground: the dinner table.

Book Review – Eat.Delete.Junior by Pooja Makhija

With an engaging language and refreshing sense of humour, the author covers a gamut of issues related to child nutrition. She provides her version of easily implementable solutions and not so easily achievable nutrition goals. The eventual agenda is to slowly transform our practices to ensure nutrition. Eat.Delete.Junior is almost like a reference bible for people like me who are scared of and confused by the ocean of information available online.

What I liked most about this book is that it gives you the liberty of using the best-fit practices and not always the best practices. The author also touches upon peripheral issues that impact food choices and kids behaviour in the modern times.

A lot of our frustrations and dilemmas are put in a perspective, when we are assured by a dietician and specialist of Pooja Makhija’s repute that as kids grow up their environment expands beyond their home and parents. Thus we cannot do too much to control their eating habits. And thus providing advice and work plans that are a best probable work arounds towards healthy eating practices.

P.S. – This book is a ready reference guide with very practical tips of how we as parents can induce nutrition into our kid’s diet at various life stages.  Go for it if you are also looking for some light hearted parent confessions in this regard.Pooja Makhija
