In this completely revised edition, Ellen Satter is as warm, friendly, and entertaining as ever as she offers even more information and guidance about nutrition, feeding, child development, and parenting. She illustrates her advice with stories drawn from her extensive experience and supports it with solid research. Satter sorts through the extremes and offers parents a practical, common-sense guide to building a loving relationship with their children when it comes to food. Child of Mine emphasizes the joy, celebration, playfulness, and learning that can be found with eating and food. Ellyn Satter's expertise and her engaging and supportive style have made Child of Mine a must for parenting bookshelves and an essential reference for nutritionists, educators, and mental health professionals.

"This is the book that parents have been waiting for. It expertly combines solid nutrition theory with practical advice for feeding infants and toddlers... ."---Journal of Nutrition Education

    Couldn't ask for a better guide for feeding your child!

    Great book about feeding your child--from newborn to teenager. Also should read 'Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family'

    Comprehensive Baby/Child Nutrition Information

    This book was given to me as a gift from my clinical dietitian sister when I gave birth to my first child. The information has helped me in countless ways. Whenever I am concerned about what or how to feed my child, I refer to the book. I don't worry about quantity of food consumed and I make sure that healthy food are always available. This is a must-read for all parents who are concerned about nutrition for their baby -preschooler.
