Interviewer: Dr. Jones, we see a lot of kids today under yet and it seem to be very large, is that a problem? Interviewee: I think that the kid under a year and that is worried about.

Interviewee: One of the important lessons that really parents have to learn to kids I think already know it, is to allow there kids to regulate there own intake. So one of the beauties of breast milk in that the child stops feeding when he is really and we have no idea how much she’s last downs. And what we do is train our kids to eat more because we want them to clean there plate or empty there bottle. I think that we want to kids and what I usually tell parents is always put a half an ounce more in the bottle than your child finishes. In that way he can tell you when is finish and you needed to listen to these kids. Interviewer: So the great approaches never use food as a reward and never use food as a measurement if you are good parents because your kids gaining by the growth calculations we do properly. That’s the best reward parent, is it? Interviewee: That’s correct. One has to remove all the extra attention we give the food, food is a natural, eating is a natural phenomenon, eating most people know how to regulate themselves and we have to encourage that self regulation.
