Overview

The best-selling "Food Doctor" (a leading clinical nutritionist) invites parents to become experts on kids' health and nutrition. With her menu-planning wisdom, you'll turn the kitchen table into a fun place for your children, and also promote high energy, brain growth, strong bodies, weight control, and immunity from disease. Delicious recipes, including vegetarian dishes that will actually get a hearty thumbs-up from kids, focus on youngsters' nutritional needs from birth to adolescence. Concerned parents will find abundant practical tips for handling eating problems; advice on food allergies and intolerances; solutions for behavioral problems linked to food, such as hyperactivity; and ideas for helping overweight or underweight youngsters. You'll even find out what to do when your child refuses a particular healthy food (or won't eat at all). And in addition to the tempting, varied recipes for main meals, the Food Doctor reveals some sweet and "sneaky" ways to get vitamins and minerals into snacks and desserts.
