Pediatric nutritionist and first-time author Piette provides a concise and helpful guide to parents of young children who are picky about what they'll eat. She advocates a whole child approach, arguing that several factors influence children who fuss, including development; biology; personality and life experience; family, friends and peers; and society. A chapter dedicated to helping parents separate what is normal from what should raise alarms is an informative prelude to Piette's strategies for helping children eat, from babies who may need help learning to suck and chew, to willful preschoolers who go through stages of interest and disgust at new foods, to dealing with a child who has learned to vomit at will. Nutritionally balanced recipes designed to appeal to young palates, additional reading suggestions and an eating habits quiz round out the book. Piette's accessible writing makes this an excellent supplement to any program a parent has begun with a pediatric nutritionist.
