    Want Better Eating Habits while keeping your child safe?

    A definte page turner. Took me about a day and a half to fully read the whole book. I would read it for about three hours whenever my 2 year old would let me. Learned more than I would of if someone would of just told me what would be of a better choice to give to her over actually experiencing it after trying some of the ideas that are in the book. A must read for those that think that they know what is best. Think again!
