From the Publisher

"This book is just great . . . Bravo!"  —T. Berry Brazelton, MD

"[Her book] can help you feed your child well while avoiding . . . food-centered struggles that can affect the parent-child relationship." —Woman's Day

"There's advice on: the kid who won't eat, the kid who overeats, the kid who demands peanut butter and jelly sandwiches three times a day, the kid who gets hungry after you've cleared away the dishes . . . [Ellyn Satter] helps parents give their children the ultimate gift; a healthy attitude toward food." —American Health

"What I need is a Fairy Godmother of nutrition who can change mealtimes from high-powered negotiation into exquisite exercises in balance. I think I found her. She is Ellyn Satter." —Carla K. Johnson, The Spokesman-Review & Spokane Chronicle

This book is helpful with practical feeding information as well as with tips on the power struggles that develop all too often when feeding children of any age. It lets you know that your job as a good parent is to provide your children with the food that they need. You are not required to force them to eat the food. It provides suggestions on ways to make the feeding process go more smoothly. Definitely a helpful resource in raising children who test the limits!
