It seems like there are reports issued almost daily about the childhood obesity epidemic in America and new findings regarding nutritional choices. This 2nd edition of Nutrition: What Every Parent Needs to Know helps any concerned parent cut through the clutter of conflicting information with solid facts, research and suggestions from editors associated with the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Whether a parent is dealing with concerns over food additives, kids who pick what's put on their plates, the need for vitamin supplements or how different foods react to medications, this book gives a definitive answer. This volume is designed to be an often-used guide for navigating what's increasingly become muddy waters when it comes to choosing the rights foods and dietary choices for children.

Book has a lot of information from birth to teens. It's pretty helpful but since I'm a first time mom I'm still uncertain about things and would love more information. It is a good overview of each stage though.
