From Publishers Weekly
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.

I really recommend this book :)
I've been trying to find ways to work around his picky palate and get him to try new foods, and thought Just Two More Bites might be the solution. While the book had some good ideas, most of it was really common-sense advice ("Let him choose his own foods!") and repetition of ideas we've already exhausted at this point. There were a few recipes to help sneak vitamin-rich veggies in on kids, but not as many as I'd hoped. And I have to note -- there is no way in hell I'd get my son to eat "green balls" of baked spinach, cheese and bread crumbs. Seriously? My kid with the adventurous palate might even turn up her nose at those.
Overall, I think most of the advice is geared toward parents of young picky eaters -- the recommendations and hints seemed most appropriate for older babies just experimenting with textures and new foods, up to two-year-olds in their defiant stage. I don't think other parents with older kids would find much new information or helpful advice here.
