"All in all, Strengthening Young Bodies, Building the Nation is without doubt a valuable tool and an excellent guide for the social history of public health and the construction of childhood, successfully fulfilling its main purpose; namely, to convey 'the many political meanings attached to children’s care' and to reveal 'the continuities and discontinuities of the efforts undertaken' regarding children’s health and welfare in Greece during the years 1890–1940."
