About “Feeding with Love & Good Sense”:

An excellent source of solid nutritional information. In addition, it espouses a philosophy of moderation and common sense that fosters good health, good eating habits and, most of all, a loving relationship between parents and children.
– The Washington Post

This is a uniquely comforting, now-I’m-on-the-right-track sort of book…a warm, sensible, professional and expert approach to what is, after all, a universal set of situations.
– Family Journal

We recommend this book for its superb nutrition information, particularly the discussion of solid foods and toddler eating.
– Journal of Human Lactation

A wealth of practical and solidly researched information for parents and professionals of all levels of experience. [Satter’s] casual, personalized writing style engages the reader and transforms potentially confusing and technical data into understandable and applicable guidelines. It is quite a relief to finally read such a rational, healthy approach to child nutrition.
– Journal of Pediatric Nursing
