Food Fights is practical, funny, down to earth instruction book that all parents should read- preferably when their kids are young, so they will grow up with life-long healthy eating habits. This book reads like your best girlfriend chatting with you about shared challenges with your kids, not like some ivory-towered medical advice from doctors with no kids. What other book addresses the '5 Second Rule'? It's obvious both authors have first hand experience with real life 'food fights'- and this is a fabulous way to share their combined 'mommy' and 'doctor' knowledge. Make this your standard baby shower gift- especially for the second kid in a family, because this gift will last far longer than a cute outfit.
