Overview

For every parent, the revolutionary new eating plan in Feed Your Kids Bright will help turn problem kids around, transform dull kids to bright kids and bright kids to brighter kids. It supplies all the nutrients essential to kids' peak brain power from preconception through pregnancy and breastfeeding and up to adolescence. Based on a unique list of The 265 Best Foods for Kids' Brains, it features inspired recipes for healthful versions of the junk foods kids love-burgers, frozen dinners, chicken nuggets, ice cream, thick shakes, and many, many more. Best of all, you don't have to make separate meals for the kids, since this ingenious-and utterly delicious-eating plan is as right for adults as it's bright for kids.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Cerebral allergens, preclinical pellagra, brain ``brown out,'' goitrogens: it's enough to turn any parent's blood cold. Can the ``wrong'' foods hurt a child's brain? Can the ``right'' foods increase an IQ? Readers should proceed with caution through this minefield of sensational, suggestive material aimed at anxious parents who are determined to raise the smartest kid on the block. The Princes (he's a biochemist; they both write diet books) warn that ``your child could become hyperactive'' from salicylates that, purportedly, sharply reduce the amounts of vitamin C as well as other nutrients in children's brains. The authors discuss a child whose violent temper tantrums were traced to a lack of zinc. Does that mean every child's tantrums are caused by zinc deficiency? If children are badly nourished, their IQ rises when they eat proper food, as Head Start and other programs prove, but that doesn't mean a basically healthy child will also gain 35 points with an improved diet, as the authors imply. The Princes present important research, a sensible diet plan and lots of nutritious recipes, all of which are highly commendable. But the premise of their work remains specious and questionable although undoubtedly marketable. Better Homes and Gardens Book Club and Prentice-Hall Book Clubs alternates; author tour. (February)
