When my mother-in-law gave me this book, I was a bit skeptical. Some of her past suggestions included directions on how to pick the proper switch for your child. Thankfully this book wasn’t like that – or at least it was not as outspoken about punitive ideas. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was highly punitive, but luckily that doesn’t change most of what a person would write about healthy eating.
Overall I agree with this book. She has some great ideas and I think it gives a good kick-in-the-pants for parents who have slacked off in the food department. She comes across a bit militant, but thatâ€™s easy to ignore 😉
My main complaint is that I was not at all impressed with her recipe for â€œformulaâ€. It reminded me of something L. Ron Hubbard would suggest.Iâ€™m not sorry that I read it, but I would only suggest it to my friends who know enough about nutrition to ignore her bad advice and formula recipe.
