Thanks for enjoying the Plum Pantry. On this page I share books I personally use, love, and recommend. As an Amazon Associate I earn a small percentage from qualifying purchases.

Born to Eat is my favorite food-related/feeding book. It’s written by two amazing dietitians. It contains all the practical info parents need when starting solids including texture, size, amount, gagging, choking and SO much more.

Both of Janet Lansbury’s books are favorites of mine. I read her first book when my first baby was a few months old and it helped me so much to understand my facilitator role as “mum”. The books helped me develop patience and understanding, they really saved me from so many frustrations that would have driven me nuts.

This one is also a favorite of mine. In some ways, geared towards older kids (I’ll read this again when I have preteens and teens!) I read this when my first was 2 years old and found so much of it applicable. Love the Buddhist aspect.

Hi, I'm Thalia the Dietitian 👋 I help parents overcome picky eating challenges, conquer mealtime battles and raise happy & healthy eaters. My unique approach to parenting at mealtimes uses elements of the “division of responsibility”, but goes even further when it comes to restricting (or not restricting) foods like dessert. I help parents through my courses and 1-1 coaching program approach mealtime situations from a place of respect, curiosity, and understanding to achieve their desired results. It’s my belief that every child deserves a healthy relationship with food, and every parent can give this gift to their child. I have a Master’s Degree in clinical nutrition and dietetics and I'm mum to two little ladies (and a retired guide dog lab.)
