What should a parent do with a child who wants to snack continuously? Or a young teen who has declared herself a vegetarian and refuses to eat any type of meat and only a few vegetables? Or a child who claims he doesn''t like what''s been prepared, only to turn around and eat the exact thing at his friend''s house?

Satter addresses these concerns and many others surrounding the relationship between parents, children, and food in a warm, friendly, and supportive way. How to Get Your Kid to Eat... is easy to read and packed full of helpful information.

— American Health

"What I need is a Fairy Godmother of nutrition who can change mealtimes from high-powered negotiation into exquisite exercises in balance. I think I found her. She is Ellyn Satter."
