    Comprehensive and Well Done

    Growing Up Green, by Deirdre Imus, is a well-researched and comprehensive book on how to make your child's world eco-friendly to keep them healthy. Imus presents to problem in the introduction: 'The World Health Organization estimates that we could prevent more than 80 percent of all chronic illnesses by improving our lifestyles in simple ways, like working to reduce our exposure to environmental pollutants and eating a healthier diet. Eighty percent! So why aren't we doing more to protect our children?' In chapter two, Imus addresses the role of the environment in children's health. Specifically, she writes about the health issues caused by pollution including learning disabilities, headaches, hyperactivity, asthma, allergies, obesity, diabetes, autism, pediatric cancer and more. 'Prevention is the best cure,' Imus says. With prevention is the best cure in mind, the remaining chapters focus on way to keep your kids healthy, beginning with preparation for pregnancy. This chapter includes information on greening your home by replacing toxic chemicals with safe products. She also discusses green building and specific green tips for the nursery. The following chapter shows the expectant mother how to eat healthy for two. Next, Imus describes how to develop a healthy eating 'palate' for your baby, which includes organic and healthy food. Imus writes about all green aspects of your child's life, including safe toys and personal care products. One of my favorite tips was to use apple cider vinegar in the bath, as it boosts mood and is relaxing for children. Add bubbles to the vinegar in the bath and you get amazing and fun foam! The chapter on pediatrics was excellent and covers vaccinations, antibiotic overload, natural homeopathic cures and more. Imus even includes a section on getting the schools to go green. Finally, the book includes a list of basic foods for your kitchen, healthy breakfast recipes and easy recipes, recommended reading and resources. The book is health insurance for your kids.

    Not as good as the "Green This" green cleaning one

    It is not as thorough as the first book in the series. It also has edition errors, repeated lines and that type of error which feel disrespectful to the reader. Much more opinion and much less fact than the first book.
