Overview

Why treat your child with drugs when you can cure your child with food?

Grounded in cutting-edge science and filled with case studies that read like medical mysteries, What’s Eating Your Child? reveals the hidden connections between nutrition and chronic childhood ailments, and gives parents the simple, straightforward solutions they need to help their children thrive.

Discover the importance of zinc. The panoply of problems caused by gluten- and casein-intolerance. How to cure sleep disorders with melatonin, hyperactivity with magnesium, anxiety with fish oil.

Ms. Dorfman, a nutritionist whose typical patient arrives at her practice after seeing three or more specialists, offers parents the tools to become nutrition detectives themselves; to recalibrate their children’s diets through the easy E.A.T. program; and finally, to get their kids off drugs—antibiotics, laxatives, Prozac, Ritalin—and back to a natural state of well-being.
