At last someone has written one volume that Kiwi parents need. Healthy Start is the healthy start you need to give your children. It is conveniently organised into five main sections: a quick guide to the common things that ail a child's body and mind; a section on keeping your child well; a more detailed section on managing common illnesses; a guide to common medicines used to treat children's ailments; and a resource section, including a guide to health services and assistance with the costs of illness.
