4.0 out of 5 stars Loved most of the message, June 26, 2008

This review is from: Let Them Eat Cake!:: The Case Against Controlling What Your Children Eat (Hardcover)
I think this is an excellent book, really makes a bold statement about the importance of trusting children when it comes to food. However, I think that it could backfire simply because in the midst of this great argument about how damaging it is to over control food, there is a ton of information about how many calories, vitamins, minerals, and how much fat kids could be expected to take in ... which I think the folks who over control food in the first place would probably use to create MORE rules for themselves and their children. It could be very easy to read this book and ignore all the times that they explain that the daily guidelines are simply that, guidelines based on averages, which have almost nothing to do with the actual day to day needs of each individual child.

I could go on and on about being a picky eater as an adult and having a picky toddler now. Control issues at mealtime are terribly destructive. Listening to parents trying to win food battles drives me nuts. Please read this book and stop the madness!

4.0 out of 5 stars A relaxed approach to feeding your children, October 6, 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Let Them Eat Cake!:: The Case Against Controlling What Your Children Eat (Hardcover)
The doctors who wrote this book make an excellent case for NOT controlling your child's diet, but instead respecting his autonomy.
