I bought this for my 18-month-old boy. However I don't read it often or read only the first 2-3 pages. The reason, my son is not eating into the yucky things mentioned the book. And after reading this book, he was a bit confused and later wanted to try. This book might be good for i-will-put-everything-in-my-mouth kids but not for the picky eaters. A good book, just not right for me.
