About the Book
Laid out in an easy-to-navigate question and answer style, this book provides practical advice and support from Sarah Remmer and Cara Rosenbloom, two trusted registered dietitians (and moms). With an empathetic tone and hint of we’ve-been-there-too humor, Food to Grow On is packed with hard-earned parenting wisdom and the very latest research in pediatric nutrition, so you will feel supported, understood, and ready to help your child thrive.
Included inside are answers to pressing questions like:
- Can I eat peanuts while pregnant?
- How often should I breastfeed or bottle-feed?
- Should I spoon-feed or try baby-led weaning?
- What do I need to know about raising a vegan child?
- My toddler is a picky eater, what should I do?
- How can I make school lunches my child will eat?
