What People are saying about "Hungry for Love"
"What a pleasure to find a book dealing with the profundities underlying eating and mealtimes, especially as they relate to life beyond obesity, anorexia, or calories! This is an unexpectedly important book, particularly for someone raising children." Vincent J. Felitti, MD, Co-Principal Investigator of the Adverse, Childhood Experiences Study (ACES)
“With his own authentic self-reflection, Charlie Slaughter helps parents understand how to use two of their key possessions—their power and their past—to positively impact children during mealtimes. He shows that when infused with love, care, and connection, parents’ power and past can be transformed into gifts they bring to the table in feeding their children.”
Robert C. Whitaker, MD, MPH, Professor of Public Health and Pediatrics, Temple University
