Attwood, whose Crowley, Louisiana, pediatric practice is reputedly one of the largest in the country, argues that switching children to a low-fat diet will spare them from disease and early death.

"Coronary heart disease starts during childhood, and its prevention must likewise start at this time," according to pediatrician Attwood. He emphasizes that unhealthy eating patterns established in childhood are dangerous in themselves because of their potential to influence eating habits over a lifetime, contributing to the development of heart disease and certain cancers in adulthood. Attwood demolishes 12 common myths about low-fat diets and child development. Practical tips are offered on making low-fat diets acceptable to children, coping with eating out and school meals, and shopping smart. This combination of scientific proof of the beginnings of heart disease in children and family-tested menus and recipes provides reader with facts about nutrition and a course of action.
