Journal Entry 4 by wingfuturecatwing from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Wednesday, January 18, 2006

6 out of 10

I was a "Plunket Baby", and my mother (like many young mothers of the time) lived half in terror and half in awe of the all-powerful Plunket Nurses and their little blue books (much to my Granny's disgust, who thought they were underfeeding me - a family story relates how she used to sneakily give me chocolate to stop me crying when I was hungry between official feed times. Hmm, wonder if that's got any connection to a serious chocolate addiction today - thanks Granny!) So having been brought up to think of Plunket Nurses as busy-body ogres, it was interesting to read about how the Plunket Society was founded, and how much it did do to improve the health of children in New Zealand.

While the subject matter was interesting, the book was a bit of a disappointment overall - the chapters seemed to jump back and forth all over the place, and a lot of the conclusions the author came to seemed based on very flimsy evidence.
