A scientific approach to diet and meal planning

The book is very well organized and the chapters are designed to provide specific scenario based information. The experience of the author on this subject is reflected in each of the finer details provided throughout the book which are practically very helpful. Especially meal planning for infants and kids and the diets to be given during fevers/infection provides great insights to the readers
