FINALLY! The nutrition resource I've been STARVED for!
Another great book from the Dr. Sears series of parenting books, 'The Family Nutrition Book'. I'm sure that nutrition goes a lot more in depth than this book covers, but it goes pretty deep into all the different nutrients, fats, cholesterol, carbs, etc. So far I've only read the first chapter while taking notes (browsed the rest of the book). It goes so far as to explain all the different kinds of fats, which ones are good/bad, which ones you don't need to eat because your body creates it's own, how much of your diet should come from fat (broken into groups for infants, toddlers, children and adults), what foods to eat to get those fats. If the rest of the book goes into as much detail as the fat chapter, for the first time EVER in my life I'll have the EXACT recipe for healthy eating! And I'm so excited! In all my treatment with eating disorders, one thing I'd ask my nutritionists and dieticians for over and over again is a way to know what my diet should be comprised of...and they'd always just give me a 'diet' to follow, but not the science behind it. Now I have it...and I truly am so excited to read this book and be able to apply the science of nutrition to feeding my family. How wonderful to have the tools to know exactly what a body needs to learn and grow and be the best body it can be! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who's interested in being able to provide the best nutrition possible to themselves and their families!!!! HURRAY!!! For Dr. Sears and his wonderful approach to parenting and ability to write a good book!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Inspired us to change
I got this book hoping it would help me get inspired to eat right. Boy did it ever. I changed so many of my eating habits and so did my Mom and three of my sisters. This is sound nutritional advice and very interesting. Everyone should read this.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Take it from a nutrition neophyte, this book is just wonderful!
Last time I checked, there were still 4 basic food groups! (In other words, I am NOT the most knowledgable girl in town when it comes to nutrition) But listen, this book is so well-written, and so practical and honestly, so fascinating, I've truly changed the way I think about food for our 18-month son and also for my husband and me. Dr. Sears says that after seeing thousands of kids in his practice, he came to the inescapable conclusion that kids who ate well, also had better temperaments, did better in school, were healthier, and the list goes on and on. And this book is (I can barely believe I'm saying this!) a lot of fun to read. Do everyone in your family a favor, buy this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
