My list of recommended websites.


adoption nutritionAdoption Nutrition. Many adopted children have eating issues as a result of food deprivation, restriction issues (restricted variety of foods, restricted times for meals) and other reasons. Parents and professionals need to understand that forcing protocols about food on adopted children can be a point of contention that may interfere with the child’s development in the adoptive family, including bonding. I recommend reviewing the information at the Spoon Foundation’s Adoption Nutrition website. You can order a free, downloadable booklet as well (professionals can order print copies for training purposes as well).




Donaldson Adoption Institute. For current policy papers, research, and advocacy on adoption.
