What's Eating Your Child?: The Hidden Connection Between Food and Childhood Ailments: Anziety, Recurrent Ear Infections, Stomachaces, Picky Eathi Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's a book for every parent whose child suffers from mood swings, allergies, ear infections, eczema, anxiety, tantrums, ADD/ADHD, picky eating, lack of growth, and a host of other physical, behavioral, or developmental problems.

This is an important book! Written by Kelly Dorfman, a sought-after nutritionist whose typical family in her practice comes to her after already having seen three or more medical specialists, What's Eating Your Child? brilliantly reveals the hidden connections between nutrition and chronic childhood ailments while giving parents simple, straightforward tools to understand and solve their children's problems.

Grounded in cutting-edge science and filled with case studies that read like medical thrillers, What's Eating Your Child? reveals that what children eat affects how they thrive. There's in-depth information on the surprising problems caused by gluten-intolerance, and--short of full-blown celiac disease--how difficult it is to diagnose. On why artificial sweeteners are worse than sugar, and why soy milk is a poor substitute for cow's milk. On how to cure sleep disorders with melatonin, hyperactivity with magnesium, anxiety with fish oil. Parents learn quickly how to become their own nutrition detectives, and how to implement the very simple EAT program to recalibrate their children's diets. They'll understand, at last, how to talk with a doctor about nutrition; why to choose organic; how to pick quality vitamins, minerals, probiotics and supplements; and how to get their children off drugs--antiobiotics, laxatives, Prozac, Ritalin--and back to a natural state of well-being.

Review:

"Dorfman, a nutritionist who specializes in working with children and who calls herself a 'nutrition detective,' reveals that many common childhood ailments are avoidable or can be dealt with nutritionally. The author advises parents to observe, analyze, and be curious, and laments that most pediatricians are not especially 'food savvy.' Using the 'binary law of nutrition' (something is either missing from or irritating the body), Dorfman follows clues to uncover the hidden causes of various problems. In one chapter, a child diagnosed with bipolar disorder turns out to be reacting to gluten; in another, chronic ear infections are linked to the milk protein casein. In another, a picky eater is found to have a zinc deficiency, which can cause foods to taste unpleasant. Dorfman explains the difference between allergies and reactions or sensitivities; introduces the 'E.A.T. Program' (eliminate, add, try), a method for rounding out the diets of fussy eaters; and emphasizes the importance of eating organic and avoiding pesticides, additives, and food coloring. This fascinating and potentially life-changing advice reveals that nutrition isn't a simple matter of finishing one's broccoli. Food has a significant impact on a child's health and well-being, and Dorfman helps parents ensure that the impact is positive. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
