Great tips for parents with babies - toddlers

Better than expected. With a wide range of tips and actions to help your baby, toddler o kid eat a wide range of HEALTHY foods. Wish it came with a written resume of the recipes, it is hard to go back and try to find a specific recipe, that's why I gave an average 4 stars. Would hear again when toddler grows to re-hear other stages.

Not for parents of picky eaters

I listened to this entire book and the “section”
on picky eaters literally just says to call and expert. Thanks a lot. I live in an area where there aren’t toddler eating experts around to hire. This might work for people without kids or kids who are willing to eat anything and everything.

Too long and detailed

I found myself skipping much of this book- it was narrated well and had some great ideas and strategies.. but there were just so many chapters that weren’t relevant to me.
