About the Author

Katja Rowell, MD, is a graduate of the University of Michigan medical school and served as a family physician in urban, rural, and university student health settings. During her time in practice, she was struck by the prevalence of disordered eating and feeding, and related health problems. Rowell works with parents to provide personalized solutions and support for feeding and weight concerns, from selective eating to food preoccupation. She is the author of Love Me, Feed Me: The Adoptive Parent's Guide to Ending the Worry About Weight, Picky Eating, Power Struggles and More. Rowell teaches the importance of a healthy feeding relationship to health care providers, family therapists and childcare staff and consults with corporate clients, nutrition education and public health projects. She has appeared in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Betty Crocker Blog, Parents Magazine, Brain Child Magazine, The Utne Reader, and Mommy MD Guides, among others.

She developed and supervises the STEPS feeding program (2005 present); is a clinical lecturer who is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association; and specializes in pediatric motor speech disorders (apraxia, dysarthria), pediatric feeding/swallowing disorders (dysphagia), craniofacial disorders, supportive treatment of eating in preschoolers (STEPS), speech production research, and newborn/infant feeding.

Reviews

"With the persistent challenge of classification and treatment of feeding problems, eating disorder professionals are increasingly charged with treating children with feeding difficulties, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) cases, and selective eating. This book is an invaluable resource for eating disorder (ED) professionals in need of a thorough introduction to the spectrum of selective eating issues that may be outside their primary area of expertise, from typical 'picky' eating to more pervasive food aversions. The authors' expert handling of this topic will empower both professionals and parents to better understand and support their selective eaters."
--Katherine Zavodni, MPH, RD, LDN, registered dietitian specializing in outpatient nutrition therapy for eating disorders, family nutrition and childhood feeding, and intuitive eating
"Lots of books promise to help solve 'picky eating' problems, but this one actually does! Rowell and McGlothlin have put together a comprehensive masterpiece."
--Skye Van Zetten, blogger at mealtimehostage.com
"Finally, there's a solid resource for families who struggle with extreme picky eating! Rowell and McGlothlin leave no stone unturned as they help parents navigate all aspects of their child's eating, from the 'how' of family dinners to decisions about feeding therapy. I will recommend this book again and again."
--Maryann Jacobsen, MS, RD, author, blogger, speaker, and coauthor of Fearless Feeding
"What I appreciate most about Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating is its respectful approach for both parents and children. It offers parents hope, understanding, and practical strategies that really work. Based on sound research and a true understanding of children, it gently but confidently guides families through the steps of building a healthy relationship with food."
--Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, EdD, licensed teacher, parent educator, and author of Raising Your Spirited Child
"Finally, an antidote to the infuriating trend of books about tricking children into eating. Rowell and McGlothlin expertly illuminate the complex emotional world of children with extreme picky eating and the caregivers who struggle to feed them. Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating is a masterpiece of practical strategies, compassion, and reassurance that's perfect for parents, pediatricians, and anyone who remembers hating 'just one more bite.'"
--Jessica Setnick, MS, RD, CEDRD, pediatric eating disorder specialist, cofounder of the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians, and author of The Eating Disorders Clinical Pocket Guide
"Katja Rowell and Jenny McGlothlin get the anxiety and many challenges both children and families feel when children are highly selective eaters! They offer sensitive, thoughtful, and practical suggestions to support families in their journey toward happier and healthier mealtimes."
--Marsha Dunn Klein, MEd, OTR/L, FAOTA, pediatric therapist, educator, author, and co-owner of Mealtime Connections, a pediatric therapy clinic in Tucson, AZ
"Finally! Not just an acknowledgment, but an exploration and even a 'how-to manual' on dealing with the long-neglected missing piece of pediatric feeding therapy--the emotional dynamic for both the child and the parent! Let's face it, eating is not just about nutrition. It's also about enjoyment and family relationships. This gets lost amidst health and medical concerns when a child severely limits his eating. Katja Rowell and Jenny McGlothlin have given us a map for restoring and healing these components as well. Parents and therapists alike will be profoundly grateful."
--Jennifer Meyer, MA, CCC-SLP, cocreator of care-to-collaborate.com, and popular international speaker in the areas of pediatric dysphagia and neonatal therapy
"A wonderful, parent-friendly resource that is easy to read and full of practical suggestions to help your child 'come to the table!'"
--Catherine S. Shaker, MS/CCC-SLP, BCS-S, pediatric speech-language pathologist at the Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando, FL, and coauthor of "The Early Feeding Skills Assessment Tool for NICU Infants"
"Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating is wonderful! I currently work with a young male client who struggles with eating, and I can honestly say that this information is so crucial for even mental health therapists who are working to help families dealing with feeding issues. I wish all school counselors could have access to this material. The material in this book has assisted me in helping my client's family in a way that I was struggling to before reading! Thank you for writing this tremendously helpful text!"
--Christine J. Schimmel, EdD, NCC, LPC, assistant professor of counseling at West Virginia University and author of numerous texts and articles on impact therapy, a multisensory, creative approach to counseling and group counseling
