Parents everywhere worry when their baby or toddler doesn't seem to eat as much as they
think he should. The author sets those fears to rest as he explores the reasons why a child
refuses food, the pitfalls of growth charts, and the ways that growth and activity affect a
child's calorific needs. He discusses how eating problems start, how they can be avoided and includes mothers' stories of the anguish they have gone through in trying to get
their children to eat.
