From the Back Cover
Grounded in cutting-edge science and filled with case studies that read like medical mysteries, What’s Eating Your Child? reveals the hidden connections between nutrition and chronic childhood ailments, and gives parents the simple, straightforward solutions they need to help their children thrive.
Discover the importance of zinc. The panoply of problems caused by gluten- and casein-intolerance. How to cure sleep disorders with melatonin, hyperactivity with magnesium, anxiety with fish oil.
Ms. Dorfman, a nutritionist whose typical patient arrives at her practice after seeing three or more specialists, offers parents the tools to become nutrition detectives themselves; to recalibrate their children’s diets through the easy E.A.T. program; and finally, to get their kids off drugs―antibiotics, laxatives, Prozac, Ritalin―and back to a natural state of well-being.

Thank you Kelly Dorfman for writing your books! I wish you would come out with a book with recipes, meal plans, or food product suggestions which will help parents in implementing your food suggestions.
When he was four, we put him on the Feingold program. It has been around since the 70s and is known to help kids with ADHD and ODD, which I suspected he had. That program eliminates artificial color, sweetener, flavoring, and petroleum based preservatives. For two years we followed the program exactly, with very little improvement. His eczema got a little better, but was still painful. His behavior improved slightly, but we still got notes home from teachers and he never had a "green" (problem free) day at school.
I have long suspected that either dairy or gluten might be something problem for Henry, but the thought of eliminating these from our diet is overwhelming. I know just enough about nutrition and how to read labels to know that either dairy or gluten is hiding in just about everything, in some form. I work full time, I have other kids and I am 8 months pregnant - there are only so many hours in the day!
A friend recommended this book, and I downloaded it immediately. I am so very glad I did.
Kelly has written this book in such a way that it calmed this overextended mother's fears about the amount of work that will go into an elimination trial.
She recommends a six week trial of what you suspect your child's problem food is. She stresses that you don't have to go all out, in most cases. For example, if you are eliminating dairy, don't stress about the small amount of milk that is in bread.Read more ›
