According to a new book entitled How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It! by Christine Wood, M.D., the risk of developing degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes and obesity can be significantly reduced through proper nutrition beginning in childhood and continuing through adulthood.
Wood, a practicing pediatrician for 14 years and a leading spokesperson on children’s nutrition, also outlines in this book ways of dealing with other non-degenerative diseases such as allergies, asthma, ear infections and attention deficit disorder (ADD) with preventative measures and with nutritional supplementation and a balanced childhood diet.
Wood’s book, a result of her years of reviewing nutritional research, is divided into three basic sections.
The first section identifies the toxic conditions present in our environment today and why instilling lifelong healthy eating habits in our kids will help them battle the environment’s negative effects on their bodies.
The second section specifically outlines proper nutrition for every age group: infants, toddlers, preschoolers, school age children, and teens.
The final section provides research, case studies and tips on how environmental measures and in some cases, proper nutritional supplementation may reduce symptoms of common diseases such as allergies, asthma, ear infections, and ADD. She also presents compelling research on why certain nutrients may have an impact on our children’s future risk of degenerative diseases of aging, like heart disease and cancer. This is information that the parents who read this book will be able to apply to themselves.
In addition to providing nutritional information, guidelines and case studies, How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It! also includes several related appendixes with charts, tables and additional resource information.
“My goal for writing this book was to create an easy to understand, simple, but thorough, guide that instructs parents on how to teach their children to enjoy eating a balanced diet and living a healthy lifestyle. “
“As parents, we hope that our kids will be healthy and stay healthy. By understanding how to use nutritional supplements as protection against today’s environmental dangers and teaching a lifestyle of healthy eating habits and exercise, we can give them this gift,” Wood said.
