"Ifyou eat your dinner, you can have pudding." How many people remember that bribe as a child? And how many repeat it to their own offspring? Yet an apparently innocent remark like that can be the start of a vicious circle of feeding difficulties in children.
Food Fights looks at parents' attitude towards children's eating habits by focusing on one family, the Marklews.
Their 3-year-old son [text removed] has eaten very little for the last year and his parents are particularly anxious because he has had a heart operation.
This documentary picks up the Marklews' story with their first visit to psychologist
Gill Harris , whose advice seems to contradict fundamental beliefs.

As if this was a nightmarish, real-life episode of Columbo, we know "whodunit" at the outset.
Chicago building contractor
John Wayne Gacy was executed by lethal injection in May, having been on Death Row since 1980.
He was charged with an unprecedented series of murders of young men - 33 in all - carried out in the 1970s.
Most of the victims were buried beneath his suburban house.
Some of them, employed by Gacy to cut trenches for underground pipework, had actually been digging their own graves before being tortured and strangled.
This two-part thriller, concluded tomorrow at
9.30pm, sees Detective Joe Kozenczak beginning a grisly cat-and-mouse game with Gacy when the latter, a pillar of the community and tireless charity worker, is connected with the latest disappearance.
The film is cased very closely on the Gacy case and was made while he was still in prison. It is built around a remarkable and icy performance by Brian Dennehy as the "regular guy" who was concealing the most horrid of secret lives.

"There are no neon-lit steps. It's just the comedian, his comedy and the audience," promises Claudia Lloyd, producer of this pilot programme which provides a new showcase for stand-up comedians. Barry Cryer introduces the cream of the club circuit's entertainers, most of whom are making their first appearance on network television. Tonight's stand-up stars are Phill Jupitus, "Bernard Right-On" (John Thompson as a politically correct version of Bernard Manning) and Phil Kay.

With all the familiar pageantry, the Commonwealth uames - the Friendly Games - open in Victoria, Canada, today. It was Canada that hosted the very first such celebration of Commonwealth sport in 1930, when Hamilton was the venue.
This year there will be much interest in the return of South
Africa to Commonwealth competition, and followers of the teams from Britain will hope that stars such as England's Linford Christie and Sally Gunnell and Wales's Colin
Jackson have enough in the energy bank for such an important event after a particularly busy season.
England top the all-time medal table with 1,156 (420 of them gold) but this could change in Canada - Australia's bag since 1930 is just three medals lighter. Introduced by Sue Barker. Executive producer Martin Hopkins Editor Brian Barwick
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
