Lots of Great info, even for adults!!! I wish there were something like this when I was raising my family. I bought for my grandkids, and I read it first before passing onto my daughter. It does not disappoint if you are serious about making healthy choices.
I found this book extremely helpful and wish it had been available when my children were small. These two doctors (a family practice doctor and a pediatrician) who have 60+ years of experience between them offer their years of experience as MDs and using homeopathic methods when possible.
For those looking for a sensible vaccine schedule, here it is. Trying to wade through all the food choices? They offer guidance with years of clinical experience.
This is a good book. I had read Seven Pillars of Health and was looking for a kids version that I could read with my child. This was not it. So a little dissappointed simply because my expectations was something else. Still helpful.
yes it talks about nutrients absorbed. yes it talks about living food (vegetables) and dead food (processed chemical laden foods)
but it focused a lot more attention on breastfeeding vs formula feeding. what types of water to BUY. kinds of supplements to give them.
Also the book talks about eating a low fat plant based diet. It says that bananas, coconut oil, and dried fruit just to name a few that cause inflamation. These authors are very off in selling this to parents as a guide to help their kids eat well.
There are no meal plan ideas or recipes. No examples of how to eat this way other than eat a plant based diet. I will keep the book and reread it hoping I missed something but I doubt I did. I read reviews online of this book after I bought/read it and I saw I'm not the only mom frustrated with the book.
I don't recommend this book because it doesn't seem like anything more than colorfully, well laid out collection online articles rather than a guide to feeding our children.
