"Feeding is a metaphor for the parent/child relationship overall," says Ellyn Satter, author of How to Get Your Kid to Eat ... But Not Too Much. Satter stresses her "Golden Rule" of parenting: parents are responsible for what is presented to eat and the manner in which it is presented. Children are responsible for how much or even whether they eat. Early chapters describe basic feeding principals. Satter then stresses ways to develop and maintain normal eating patterns from birth through adolescence, and provides solid information (and information on "solids") to both empower and relieve all parents worried about how their child eats. Later sections focus on feeding problems, obesity, special needs children, and eating disorders. How to Get Your Kid to Eat ... But Not Too Much may be the most sensible and accessible book on childhood feeding on the market.

Unlike the other books I got, I was able to read the whole book inside of a week, and was also able to read the specific chapters without needing to constantly reference others.
We have incorporated the philosophy and recommendations with our daughter and while she has only added one fruit to her diet on a regular basis, she is now at least willing to try a new food.
The one con I found was that Ms Satter referenced her other book "Child of Mine" quite often in the early chapters, and I felt that including a basic summary of it in its own chapter would have been very helpful.
