Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

From the foremost authority on children's health--
a comprehensive guide to making peace at the table, feeding your baby, and creating healthy eating habits for the whole family

The American Academy of Pediatrics knows that the real challenge for parents isn't being aware of what to feed kids--it's getting children to actually eat those foods. From the preeminent organization in the field, the Guide to Your Child's Nutrition is a source of reassuring advice to help parents raise healthy children. Beyond simple guidelines describing the dietary needs of children from birth through adolescence, the Academy gives tips on:

¸ choosing what's best for your newborn
¸ introducing solid foods
¸ feeding toddlers and picky eaters
¸ reducing fat and salt for children of any age
¸ keeping adolescents eating well
¸ identifying allergies in children

The AAP Guide to Your Child's Nutrition uses a two-color format to make its information easy to use and quick to find. Sidebars offer low-fat snacks and menus, help for allergy sufferers, and a plethora of suggestions to make mealtimes easier and healthier for everyone.

I was excited about this book, but I have found that not much of it is relevant for the age of my little one (4 years old). They list a lot of good information for babies and a lot of good information for older kids, but the information for toddlers and preschoolers was lacking, in my opinion.

I am a public health nurse and teach health and nutrition courses to parents. This book is a constant resource for me. It is easy to follow and full of useful tables, growth charts, etc. I have found this to be one of the most practical books in my library

I was a brand new mom when I got this book, and I found it very helpful. Many, if not most, of the books available for new parents are written by other parents based on their opinions. I found this book based on science and doctors' recommendations to be very refreshing. I used it as a constant reference in the first few years of my child's life.

Another excellent book about nutrition for the adults in the family is Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy.
