Ignore the alarmist title! A prominent neuropsychiatrist reviews and interprets a broad spectrum of experimental scientific studies on the interaction of food and behavior in infants and children. Included are classic studies on sugar, hyperactivity and aggression, breakfast composition, artificial sweeteners, critiques of fads (the Feingold diet, and megavitamin therapy), and general issues, e.g., food allergies. Conners's "Behavior Problem Checklist" integrates research with practice, providing parents with specific at-home procedures for evaluating and improving food-behavior effects. Recommended for public libraries.
