Resumen

BLACK, Maureen M  y  CREED-KANASHIRO, Hilary M. How to feed children? Healthy eating behaviors starting at childhood. Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica [online]. 2012, vol.29, n.3, pp. 373-378. ISSN 1726-4634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1726-46342012000300013.

Interventions to prevent malnutrition or overweight in children focus on the diet, and give little attention to the behaviors of their caretakers. In their first two years of life, children adopt practices that are embedded in their environment and the behaviors of their caretakers, thus turning into nutrition patterns that will persist during their lifetimes. Therefore, children and caretakers establish a relationship in which they recognize, construe and respond to verbal and non verbal communication signs. Feeding a child by adopting a “responsive” behavior in which caretakers provide guidance and structure, and respond to children’s signs of hunger and satiety promotes self-regulation and children’s awareness of healthy nutrition. In this article, we give recommendations to include responsive nutrition and model healthy eating behaviors in nutritional interventions
