Default food aggression?

i think maddalynn who is only 9 weeks old is starting to show food aggression. if jayson walks past her while shes eating she freezes and starts to growl. how can i stop it from progressing? i havent delt with this kind of thing since with jayson i can stick my hand in his bowl and he will just lick my hand then continue eating.

While this article is geared more towards adult dogs, there is a good bit at the end on desensitizing a dog to having people near the food bowl:

You're welcome! You can also check out Jean Donaldson's book Mine! It's available as an e-book I'm pretty sure.
