Review Quotes




"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 quite a relief to finally read such a rational, healthy approach to child nutrition." --Journal of Pediatric Nursing

"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 is a uniquely comforting, now-I'm-on-the-right-track sort of book...a warm, sensible, professional and expert approach to what is, after all, 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
