Overview

"I've worked side by side with Dr. Pescatore for many years. In this book—which I heartily recommend—Dr. Pescatore teaches you how to bring health and nutrition to the next generation."—Robert C. Atkins, M.D., author of the multimillion copy bestseller Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution.

"Feed Your Kids Well offers a sensible approach to the difficult problem of childhood obesity—and many other children's health problems. Dr. Pescatore provides parents with excellent strategies for dealing with their children in a positive, sensitive way."—Carol Colman, coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Melatonin Miracle.

"Feed Your Kids Well is an excellent book that explains the importance of a well-balanced diet. It exposes the dangers associated with high-sugar foods and reveals the true cause of childhood obesity."—Joyce and Gene Daoust, authors of 40-30-30 Fat Burning Nutrition.

"I helped nutritionally vet Adelle Davis's book, Let's Have Healthy Children. In my opinion, Feed Your Kids Well replaces that important work."—Fran Gare, nutrition expert, CBS-TV.

Today, one-third of North American children and teenagers are overweight. And despite decades of medical and scientific breakthroughs, the percentage of children with health problems today is the highest in history.

Feed Your Kids Well will be a revelation for millions of worried parents. Dr. Fred Pescatore, who was overweight and asthmatic as a child, brings an empathetic and hopeful tone to this groundbreaking guide to achieving optimum nutrition, ideal health, and self-confidence.

Building on the low-carbohydrate principles of the hugely popular Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution—which has helped millions of adults lose weight permanently—Dr. Pescatore applies the Atkins Center's proven nutritional program to children and teenagers. Thoroughly tested over years of exhaustive research, his Next Generation Diet is the first health program to recognize that simply applying adult diet plans to children is ineffective—and often dangerous. The author argues that the real culprit behind dietary problems is not fat, but sugars and starches. Feed Your Kids Well brings something new to the table: sane and practical guidance for parents concerned not only about weight loss, but also about general wellness and the prevention of disease—from asthma to ADD, from earaches to allergies.

After explaining how your child's body and metabolism work, Dr. Pescatore clearly outlines a straightforward nutritional lifestyle program that helps parents shape the important building blocks—proteins, fats, and carbohydrates—into complete, well-balanced meals. Packed with easy-to-follow sample menus for every day of the week, this book provides delicious, healthy alternatives. Kids will love the dozens of simple, step-by-step recipes for a variety of dishes, including pancakes with strawberry topping, chicken fingers, beef tacos, fudgy brownie squares, and peanut butter cookies. Some recipes are easy enough for kids to make themselves!

Parents will also learn how to integrate effective nutrition with various vitamin supplements, complementary medical treatments, and a regular exercise program, which can help heal and even prevent childhood ailments. With fascinating case studies, Dr. Pescatore demonstrates how to treat these problems simply by monitoring nutrient deficiencies and sugar overload.

In childhood, the all-important seeds of our adult selves are planted—from our personalities to our eating habits. Feed Your Kids Well helps parents prepare their children for healthy, happy lives.

    A wonderful nutrition course for parents!

    This book is wonderful. It should be on the required reading list for parents. It gave me the knowledge I needed to feed my kids well. There were moments every day when my kids would ask, 'Can I have candy (or chips, or whatever)?' I would waffle back and forth between 'what harm is a little candy doing them' and 'NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT! ALL YOU DO IS EAT CANDY!!!' I never had a knowledge base of accurate information on which to base my decisions. That's what this book gave me, and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has questions about what is healthy for their kids. All of my kids have benefited from what I have learned. My 11 year old daughter had a 30 pound weight loss in front of her. Thus far, with the help of this book, she has lost 15 pounds and is very happy with the plan! My other two daughters are eating much healthier now. They all have more energy, are better behaved, and are not the same couch potatoes they were 3 months ago. Thank you Dr. Pescatore! This is one of the most valuable parenting books I have EVER read.
