In this groundbreaking book, two leading pediatric nutritionists–and experienced parents!–introduce exciting new research into “metabolic programming” and make it accessible and practical for every busy parent. They explain:
How the foods you choose can optimize your baby’s future development, IQ bone strength, and immunity
The eight key nutrients to focus on
Scientifically based “smart strategies” for working with your child’s inborn instincts to build healthy eating habits
Food solutions for common problems–including colic, constipation, poor sleep, and hyperactivity
How to prevent or deal with food allergies or obesity
Easy ways to adapt family meals for kids–with menus and portion sizes for every stage from birth through age six, plus essential tips for food safety
What’s more, you can teach your child to enjoy these healthy foods and banish food battles and picky eating forever.This book tastes great and it’s good for you, too. Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health: Birth Through Age Six is based on the principle of “metabolic programming,” the scientifically rooted idea that foods eaten in early childhood directly affect the function of individual cells that control strength, intelligence, the immune system, and other vital functions. Think of it as a convoluted molecular take on the old maxim “You are what you eat.” Genetics and other external factors also play a role, of course, but those factors are beyond our control. What goes on the dinner table, however, is not. The point of this book is to help parents teach their kids to like healthful foods, thus getting them into a lifelong habit of eating well and staying healthy.
There is a fair amount of science in this book, but the clear writing and good organization make it go down easy. Particularly helpful are the numerous graphs and boxes that highlight such topics as the best sources of calcium and iron (and why too much iron is dangerous), the differences between breast milk and formula, the eight key nutrients for different ages, and how to identify and even prevent allergies and intolerance to certain foods. The recipes, sample meals, healthy snacks, and tips for dealing with finicky eaters are alone worth the price of the book. Feeding Your Child for Lifelong Health is an invaluable guide to ensuring that not only will your kids eat their vegetables, they’ll even ask for seconds. –Shawn Carkonen
