The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood
By William Sears, M.D. and Martha Sears, R.N.
It’s hardly a secret that too many American children don’t eat right. The frequency and severity of childhood illnesses—from depression to diabetes, from limited attention spans to cholesterol imbalance—have reached an all-time high, and this alarming situation can be directly linked to the food kids eat. With ubiquitous fast-food restaurants, junk food in schools, and high-risk sweeteners and trans-fats in snacks marketed directly to children, parents need help!
This book provides help in the form of an eating plan that’s already proved effective for countless American families. Their plan identifies foods and eating habits that can counter or prevent many common illnesses. It explains how parents can shape young tastes to crave the right proportions of healthy foods, and how young metabolisms can be programmed to make the most of the nutrients kids consume while their bodies and brains are growing.
