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.

"A wealth of practical and solidly researched information for parents and professionals of all levels of experience.

It is quite a relief to finally read such a rational, healthy approach to child nutrition." —Journal of Pediatric Nursing
