More About the Author

I am a mother, author, and registered dietitian. My passion is nutrition, especially when it comes to helping women (and men!) prepare to have the healthiest babies well before they conceive, and to coaching moms about how to feed their growing families while nurturing themselves, too. As a mother, I know that most of us act as the "gate keepers," of the household (my apologies to the dads out there who do the same), deciding what foods to buy and to prepare. Our job is one of the most important of all because we're setting the stage for our child's health, in the short-term and the long run. Like most working moms, I'm busy, and I am always looking for great tips and simple solutions for feeding my family the most nutritious foods, and that's the stuff of all of my books, including my latest, Expect the Best, Your Guide to Healthy Eating Before, During, and After Pregnancy. If you're looking for tasty and delicious recipes, Expect the Best has 50 of them that the entire family will love. And, check out my blog at dietchallenge.usatoday.com for a new family-friendly recipe every week.

As a new grandma, I just love this book(If only it had been around when I was wrestling with my own kids!) I'm sending it to my daughter right away. Her's a reality check on how normal kids learn to eat. It's a fun, relaxed, and practical guide to conquering the anxieties that make feeding a baby such a hassle. Very soothing. If you want to know "Why?", there's solid science dished out in tasty little bites that new parents can enjoy. But the bulk of the advice is simple, hands-on information about getting from breast to full-fledged meals from a nutrition pro who must have kids of her own.

As a pediatrician and mother of three, I know how confusing all the nutrition advice that mothers hear can be to sort through and make sense of. This book presents good, sound advice in a logical, easy-to-follow, stepwise fashion, and also tells us the science behind the recommendations for those who are interested. And as an added bonus, the book has many great, quick recipes that even us non-Martha Stewart-types with real lives can handle.

After 20 years as a pediatric dietitian, I have probably heard most every question a parent can think of. In this book I have seen the answers presented in a logical parent friendly easy to read style. This book offers more than just the basic what to eat. It's an easy to swallow guide of good nutrition for kids. And the recipes are perfect for time challenged famillies. A great stocking stuffer for the new parent.

Format: Paperback
As a pediatrician, I'm constantly on the lookout for resources for parents. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Feeding Your Baby and Toddler is an excellent resource that packs a ton of important information into an easy-to-read reference.

The first part is geared toward starting infants under a year on solids and provides step-by-step instructions for parents just starting to make their own baby food or feed their infant from a jar. The rest of the book focuses mainly on toddlers who eat table foods. Along with important nutrition details about vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats, I found the cooking tips included in the second half of the book to be most useful. The chapter called "Supermarket Savvy" shares great ideas to make store-bought/convenience foods healthier (such as adding apple juice and chopped raisins and celery to stuffing mix or mixing instant oatmeal into refrigerated cookie dough). The recipe section is better than most cookbooks I've seen for kids because it includes healthy recipes for foods that kids will actually eat (such as apple crisp, meatballs, pudding popsicles, blueberry muffins, chips made from pita bread, and macaroni and cheese).

This Complete Idiot's Guide does a wonderful job of making feeding and nutrition easy for parents--without making you *feel* like a complete idiot. I highly recommend it and refer to it often myself when making meals and snacks for my own family!

This book provides actual recipes and tips for getting even finicky eaters to try foods. What I love is that it spells everything out for you in a fun-to-read format. It underscores what vitamins and minerals are essential for your baby's needs and how to get aorund the most picky of eaters, of which my son is one. At least there are many options, so that if one recipe doesn't work, there are dozens more to try. I highly recommend this one.

Just what I was looking for. This book referenced all of my concerns and shared a few good recipes too. Whenever I need inspiration, I pull it from the shelf.

I recently purchased The Complete Guide to Feeding your Baby and Toddler for a baby shower gift, and I wish it had been available when I was a first time mother. It is simple, well organized, and it is NOT filled with impossible to make baby foods. I especially like the supermarket section. I highly recommend this book to first time moms and for moms who have picky children.
