This book makes it clear what kid's need & what they don't need. I found the explanation of which vitamins/minerals can be too much - blocking absorption of other necessary nutrients - very helpful. Everyone I have turned on to the book has loved it!
Another thing I found helpful was the chapter on what to start feeding your 6 month - 1 yr. old. It lists what to start them on & what to hold off on & explains why. This is far more detailed than our pediatrician's information. The prenatal chapter is good as well & I wish I had this book when I was pregnant.
Especially easy & helpful is the information on which supplements are beneficail for your child's specific needs/problems like hyperactivey, yeast infections, eczema, cradle cap, fatigue, diabetes ect..
It's really not that hard. It's very basic nutritional information just well explained. It's really not difficult to feed your kids & yourself basic whole foods. Read the labels! You may quickly realize these are lifestyle changes that you want to make since it is so beneficial to your child's health & development of their brain, eyes, etc.
Great format & an easy read.
THIS IS THE BEST BOOK I HAVE FOUND ON ECZEMA FOR CHILDREN OR ADULTS.
I also recommend:
Chemical-Free Kids: How to Safeguard Your Child's Diet and Environment by Allan Magaziner, Linda Bonvie, and Anthony Zolezzi
This book better explains the importance of organic foods among other things.
Another great format & an easy read.
I have noticed a significant difference in my 18 month old son's health verses other children his age. He has never had an ear infection and his colds don't amount to much. But I am also making these changes for his future healthy immune system as well.
I refer to this book often, it's not a one time read. It also has recipes that incorporate the healthy foods that they recommend you feed your kids.
I also like the book, because it's not a weird "guru-type" nutrition book. These ideas for a healthy immune system are just a healthy lifestyle for EVERYONE...not just the "health food nut". This book is a good reference tool if you are interested in making a change in your child's overall health and well being.
I wanted to mention that some of the things are just not do-able with young kids. Much of what he asks us to feed our kids, is not stuff they would eat...especially a child who is 2 years old. ie: liver, seafood stew, oysters, etc. He also tells you to limit sugar to 1 tsp a day total, no added salt on stuff, no fast food restaurants or pizzarias, and no hydrogenated oils etc. These thing may be well and good, but also very difficult for the average mom or dad to pull off EVERY day, especially with todays "supermarket" foods. The book has some good recipes, and some good helpful hints, it even got us eating tofu... but please be aware that you may come away from this book feeling overwhelmed by what you should do and guilty by what you are, or are not doing.
I read it as a helpful tool that helped me make MANY healthy changes and decisions...but not something that I took on as "religion" or something I can do as an EVERY day occurance.
sick since. I have given this book away many times.
