'The Need2Know Guides are exceptional resources for parents. The books are written by experts in their field, and contain plenty of practical advice written in a friendly and approachable fashion whilst remaining totally professional in outlook. We are all familiar with the topic of childhood nutrition but much of what we read is sensationalised. We need a sensible, down-to-earth approach and this book is exactly that. It starts with a breakdown of the food children need, and then discusses the requirements of 4 different age groups. Recipes for babies are followed by ideas for breakfasts, lunches and family dinners. All the recipes are straightforward, nutritious and based on easily obtained ingredients. help your child have a healthy start to life with this practical guide.' Parents In Touch 'I love the fact that the book covers all stages of childhood, with chapters for each age range : Birth to One, One to Five, Six to Ten and Eleven to Eighteen. So many parents buy baby books and read up on baby weaning then stop worrying about it - myself included ! - so it was really interesting to properly think about the nutritional needs of each stage of childhood. I love the case studies about real people that really put things into perspective - the vegetarian child, the boy who didn't like vegetables, the picky eater - as well as the quick tips for, amongst other things, healthy lunch box ideas, exam food or nutritious snacks.'
