Overview

Who worries about heart attack risks in a four-year old, adult-onset type diabetes in a twelve-year old, or cancer risks from the food we eat? Well, perhaps we should be concerned. According to Dr. Christine Wood the risk of developing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can be significantly reduced through proper nutrition beginning in childhood.

How to Get Kids to Eat Great and Love It is divided into three basic sections:
  • The first section discusses health trends, the toxic environment, and how instilling lifelong healthy eating habits in our kids will help them with these issues.
  • The second section specifically outlines easy-to-implement tips for parents to encourage good nutrition from birth through adolescence.
  • The final section provides research on the relationship of diet and additional nutrients on the risks of common diseases such as allergies, asthma, ear infections, eczema and ADD.

Read an Excerpt

What parent wouldn�t want to give the gift of good health and a lifetime of good eating habits to his or her children? As a parent and a pediatrician I feel very strongly that we, as parents, have a job to do in protecting and nurturing our kids. We suffer as much as our child does with every cold, fever, cut, bruise, ache, and pain. We do our best to protect them by using car seats and bike helmets, and by being watchful parents.
