Ellyn Satter provides helpful, straightforward advice on feeding children, from prenatals to preteens. This invaluable guide features black-and-white illustrations, charts, tables and an appendix dealing with specific problems.

Editorial Reviews

"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
