Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Written by one of the world's top nutritional physicians, Eat, Play, and Be Healthy gives scientifically sound and kitchen-tested advice on creating lifelong healthy eating habits. This book is a solution to the growing epidemic of nutrition-related health and behavior problems in children."

--William Sears, M.D., author of The Baby Book

"An excellent guide for parents who want to provide the best possible nutritional health for their growing children."

--Ronald Kleinman, M.D., former chairman of the Committee on Nutrition, American Academy of Pediatrics

With so much conflicting advice coming from the media, your friends, and parenting guides, it's hard to know whether you're making the right food choices for your kids. Written by a leading authority on pediatric nutrition, Eat, Play, and Be Healthy provides answers to all your childhood nutrition questions--and much more.

Eat, Play, and Be Healthy shows you how to feed your children to ensure that their young bodies and minds enjoy full and healthy growth at every stage of development. Picking up where Dr. Walter C. Willett's international bestseller Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy left off, W. Allan Walker, M.D., shows how to apply the research-based Healthy Eating Pyramid to a child's unique needs. Drawing on his forty years of clinical research, as well as the latest scientific findings, he:

  • Offers a scientifically proven alternative to the FDA food pyramid
  • Helps you shape your kids' eating habits from the start
  • Provides fun, delicious recipes for healthy foods kids will want to eat

Synopsis:

A new prescription for healthy eating for kids by one of the world's most respected pediatricians.
