Reader’s Reviews (posted on Amazon)

“This well written book looks at picky eating from a different angle than I have read anywhere else, yet it makes perfect sense”

“This is a fantastic book full of passages that made me go "Ahhh... That makes complete sense.” 

“Short but packed with really practical information. Really liked the summaries - key points are very clear. If like me you're also interested in theoretical background and research evidence - that's also there. Strongly recommended.”

“This book has really given me the confidence to take a new approach to feeding my daughter. I am 3 weeks in to taking the advice this book gives and already meal times are no longer unpleasant but much more enjoyable.”

“Oh this is just spot on. Clear and easy to read. It's so hard having a fussy eater and I think the issue will persist into the future, but it is no longer a battle.”

“Thank you Jo, you have made such a difference to our family.”

“War and Peas absolutely transformed supper time at our house.”

 “ I would recommend this book to any parent who dreams of peaceful meals with kids.”

“If you struggle at the table with your children, and feel like giving up. Read this book. If you stick to it, you will be pleasantly surprised at the results.”

“I thought this book was insightful and made me look at feeding my kids in a completely different way. It's about teaching life long habits for my children. It's a short book and a quick read, but every word has purpose.”
