Reviews

"Considering all the pseudoscientific mumbo-jumbo that passes for nutritional advice these days, I can't help being enthusiastic when a really good guide based on solid research shows up in bookstores...you can bet I'm going to recommend it to every parent I know. I'm talking about Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health...should be required reading for anyone with children under the age of six." --Christine Gorman, Time magazine "A very intelligent approach to the feeding of young children." --T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., author of Touchpoints "At last a book that not only tells parents what their children need to eat but provides a realistic and reassuring approach to how to feed them. This is a book every parent will want to have on their bedside--or kitchen--table." --Annie Pleschette Murphy, Editor-at-Large, Parents magazine "I have not seen another publication anywhere in the world that addresses this field in such a way. This book is truly brilliant...meticulously anchored in the science of nutrition, infant and young child behavior and development, and completely up-to-date. It is also full of warm, humanely written practical applications and guidance....An excellent guide for pregnant mothers, parents, health workers, nutritionists, nurses, physicians, and pediatricians." --Graeme A. Clugston, M.B., Ph.D., Director, Nutrition for Health and Development, World Health Organization "Heart disease begins in childhood--and so does a healthy way of eating. Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health shows why it's never too early--or too late--to discover the power and joy of healthy nutrition. This book may save your child's life." --Dean Ornish, M.D., author of Love & Survival and Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease "This book deserves to be read by every pregnant woman across America. It is a relief to find such evenhanded treatment of many controversial issues that trouble new parents and the practical, clearheaded guidance for every stage between birth and six years." --Barbara J. Moore, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Shape Up America! "A 'how-to' with the science to back it up, this comprehensive, innovative book is a godsend to those who want children to be healthy and appropriately nourished, through each developmental stage." --M. Edward Keenan, M.D., Past President, American Academy of Pediatrics
