There is a fair amount of science in this book, but the clear writing and good organization make it go down easy. Particularly helpful are the numerous graphs and boxes that highlight such topics as the best sources of calcium and iron (and why too much iron is dangerous), the differences between breast milk and formula, the eight key nutrients for different ages, and how to identify and even prevent allergies and intolerance to certain foods. The recipes, sample meals, healthy snacks, and tips for dealing with finicky eaters are alone worth the price of the book. Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health is an invaluable guide to ensuring that not only will your kids eat their vegetables, they'll even ask for seconds. --Shawn Carkonen

As a scientist working on obesity and a parent of two young children I found this excellent book worked well at two different levels. First it satisfied my scientific curiosity about why certain things were important in a very readable and understandable way, but second it actually showed me how to put the theory into practice with my own children. It is this latter reason why this book is such a winner. It is all very well to tell people that children should eat more vegetables and less sweets - this book shows you how to achieve it.
At just over 12$ the value for money is just amazing. I have absolutely no hesitation in saying that if you have children under 6, or are planning a family this will be the best 12$ you ever spent. BUY IT NOW. There arn't enough stars in the amazon.com system to recommend it.
