Children in these years develop assertive independence and have a reputation for being fussy eaters. At no other age is there such a potential for small changes in diet to significantly impact on health. However, they know when they are hungry and when they are not, and if we respect this and apply a few simple rules, good nutrition at this age is easy. The authors, Dr Patricia McVeagh and Eve Reed, specialise in children's health and nutrition, and on a daily basis, answer queries and concerns from parents. In this book they draw on their collective experience to provide parents with important medical and nutritional information - and simple, clear options for feeding toddlers and preschoolers.
