Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Nutrition plays a key role in everyone’s health, especially that of our children. Because of their active lifestyles and rapidly growing bodies, it is essential that young people receive adequate amounts of all the nutrients they require for optimal growth and development.

Nothing can replace the value of regular exercise and an active lifestyle, complemented with sound nutrition through a carefully balanced diet. This is the way Nature intended it to be. Unfortunately, children (and adults) in today’s high-stress world face a dearth of beneficial physical activity and a steady diet of meals on the run, fast-food restaurants and processed foods, devoid of nutritional value. It is the exception, rather than the rule, that kids today will sit down to home-cooked meals with fresh-from-the-garden fruits and vegetables served up with loving care. Even for those fortunate enough to do so, there is no guarantee that they are receiving all the nutrients they need.

The Comparative Guide to Children's Nutritionals examines the science of nutrition for infants, children and adolescents, including a full discussion of degenerative disease, which often has its beginnings in childhood. Over 160 retail, mail-order and multi-level-marketing products are compared to our Adjusted Blended Standard. The product scoring is adapted for children from the Blended Standard and includes the same fourteen vital criteria as our Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements for adult supplements.

Format: Paperback
Like it's companion publication, the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements, this guide takes a hard look at North American lifestyles--in this case, that of our children. However, rather than simply lament the obesity epidemic sweeping our nations, author Lyle MacWilliam provides solid advice on mitigating the damage through lifestyle change, better nutrition and supplementation.

The guide also includes graphical comparisons of multiple vitamin and mineral products, based on the published recommendations of nutritional experts. The graphs and scoring criteria make it easy to choose a supplement that is right for your child.

Highly recommended for parents, grandparents and parents-to-be.

What is the only thing more important than our health? The health of our children. MacWilliam has given us a great way to find althernatives to the vitamn-laced candy we find on the shelves. With studies showing that 30-50% of the children in this country are going to grow up with nutrition-linked diseases such as diabetes, we need every tool we can get to combat this epidemic. MacWilliam has given us a well researched guide that we can trust.

The research conducted is quite impressive and detailed. Given the reputation which Lyle MacWilliam has established for himself in the areas of nutrition supplements, this comparative guide is not to be missed. Strongly recommended to use this comparative guide for those parents who are seriously searching for good quality supplements to cater the growth and needs of their children.
