Children's LiteratureThis is the third book by Lucy Burney, a qualified Nutrition Consultant and children's health specialist. Burney gives parents realistic advice on children's nutrition and health for all ages. Stating some common symptoms and the possible ways to increase a child's immune system, her proven techniques are offered so that adults and children's immune systems may improve. For example, someone who has frequent colds and infections may possibly have an antioxidant deficiency (lacking vitamins A, C, or E, or, possibly, zinc or selenium). Burney then offers an explanation of what specific foods should be increased and decreased and recipes that can help are included. The recipes are simple and easy to follow, such as Chicken in a Pot, smoothies, and Family Macaroni Cheese. The book is divided into sections: "The First Six Months," "Six to Nine Months," through "Thirteen to Eighteen Years." The professional advice and information is not just for children, but is suitable for adults as well. Burney explains how the immune system works, allergies, antibiotics, and vaccinations. The book offers sound advice for adults and children. 2005, Newmarket Press, Ages 16 up.
