Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Pediatrician Sears and his wife, Martha Sears, R.N., have written another handbook in the Sears Parenting Library, this time coauthoring with two of their sons, pediatricians James and Robert. The Searses are concerned about children's nutrition, as they see an increase in obesity and other typically "adult" conditions: Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Their "Ten Ways" are not difficult to follow, although parents will possibly need to break some of their own bad habits first. Many tips deal with choosing only the healthiest foods: fresh produce, optimal carbohydrates, and the correct fats. Parents are encouraged to use each grocery trip as an educational field trip and are told how to convince their children to try new, healthy foods. Though the "Ten Ways" are for the most part easy to follow, the Searses understand that putting this information into practice will take time and effort on the part of parents. This text would be a wonderful addition to any public library's consumer health collection. Even smaller branch libraries would do well to own it.-Rachel M.
