Product Details


"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
