OSORIO E., Jessica; WEISSTAUB N., Gerardo  y  CASTILLO D., Carlos. DEVELOPMENT OF FEEDING BEHAVIOR IN CHILDHOOD AND ITS ALTERATIONS. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2002, vol.29, n.3, pp.280-285. ISSN 0717-7518.

Development of eating behavior and associated skills during infancy is a complex process which involves the physiological regulation of intake; growth; body weight; psychological aspects of the child, parents, and family as a whole, and social and cultural influences. Alterations of eating behavior are commonly observed, and may be associated with failure to thrive, food aversions and difficulties in family life. Management of these alterations must be based on a preventive education to the mother during the infant's first 2 years of life, in behavioral induction of changes in family environment, and as a last resort, with the use of orexigenic medications

Palabras clave : appetite; eating behavior; infancy.
