Good Food for My Baby.
Pizzo, Peggy Daly; Pizzo, Philip
Prenatal and infant nutritional needs and eating patterns are described and illustrated (in picture-book style) in this brief story about a mother and her infant son. Balanced diets, vitamin supplements, breast feeding, weaning, and infant food preparation are discussed. Mothers are encouraged to breast feed because it is cheaper and "the best food for babies." Tips for mothers who must deal with children's pleas for snack foods are given. The final section of the booklet presents abstracts of research concerning prenatal nutrition, the effects of maternal smoking on babies, breast feeding, infant feeding, infant obesity, infant tooth decay, and food faddism.
