Review

“An excellent source of solid nutrition information. . . . it espouses a philosophy of moderation and common sense that fosters good health, good eating habits, and, most of all, a loving relationship between parents and children.” —Washington Post
“This can be a uniquely comforting, now-I’m-on-the-right-track sort of book…a warm, sensible, professional and expert approach to what’s, in spite of everything, a universal set of situations.” —Family Journal
“We recommend this book for its superb nutrition information, particularly the discussion of solid foods and toddler eating.” —Journal of Human Lactation
“A wealth of practical and solidly researched information for parents and professionals of all levels of experience. [Satter’s] casual, personalized writing style engages the reader and transforms potentially confusing and technical data into understandable and applicable guidelines. It is moderately a relief to in the end read the sort of rational, healthy approach to child nutrition.” —Journal of Pediatric Nursing
