Baby Knows Best: How to Prevent Childhood Obesity from Day Oneby Herbert Goldman
Synopses & Reviews
Ten percent of American children are overweight by their fifth birthday, and over 15 percent between the ages of 6 and 19 are too heavy. Many more are at risk of joining the ranks of the nearly 60 percent of American adults who are overweight. New parents are left wondering how to keep their child from becoming a part of these grim statistics, but they often don’t have a clear understanding of childhood obesity’s root causes. Though many factors contribute to this growing problem, the most fundamental factor is also the hardest to change: the way we eat. In Baby Knows Best, Dr. Herbert Goldman draws from his 35 years of experience in childhood nutrition and obesity prevention to help parents over this hurdle. Through his proven, easy-to-follow methods, parents learn how to instill healthy eating patterns that stave off children’s weight problems — not only while they’re young but for life.
In BABY KNOWS BEST, Dr. Herbert Goldman writes about an area to which he has dedicated much of his long career; infant and childhood nutrition and the prevention of obesity. Citing studies he has carried out as well as other compelling evidence, Dr. Goldman sheds light on ways to prevent excess weight gain and obesity. With his easy-to-follow, tested and proven method, Dr. Goldman teaches parents how to create healthy eating patterns that keep children thin.
