I had high hopes for this book. Such a cute idea--such a cute cover. But it just sort of falls short. Very light on usable information or tips and sometimes felt judgey about anything you might be doing. For example, if you have fed your child jarred baby food there is page after page of listing how bad that is and then a few lines like "Is it really so hard to steam some veggies and blend them?" Compared to opening a jar? Well, it's not hard but yes, it is more time consuming. And then when it talks about family meal time and how important it is, the advice is something like "Can't you rearrange your child's schedule to fit this in?" What like put them to bed at 10? Or when you're on road trips, you CAN stop for fast food but it's far healthier to stop by a roadside fruit stand. Don't get me wrong. It's good information that she discusses and the studies are all correct. But it all left me feeling really hopeless about food and nutrition. And I just don't think a book should make you feel that way. We've all had a conversation or two with a fellow parent who wrinkles his/her nose and says "Oh you feed your child JUICE? My child only drinks water or milk." Well, bully for you. That's what this book felt like. A long conversation with one of those friends.
