Overview

Why treat your child with drugs when you can cure your child with food?

Grounded in cutting-edge science and filled with case studies that read like medical mysteries, What’s Eating Your Child? reveals the hidden connections between nutrition and chronic childhood ailments, and gives parents the simple, straightforward solutions they need to help their children thrive.

Discover the importance of zinc. The panoply of problems caused by gluten- and casein-intolerance. How to cure sleep disorders with melatonin, hyperactivity with magnesium, anxiety with fish oil.

Ms. Dorfman, a nutritionist whose typical patient arrives at her practice after seeing three or more specialists, offers parents the tools to become nutrition detectives themselves; to recalibrate their children’s diets through the easy E.A.T. program; and finally, to get their kids off drugs—antibiotics, laxatives, Prozac, Ritalin—and back to a natural state of well-being.

    Terrific read - couldn't put it down!

    The book really opened my eyes to the foods responsible for allergies, mood swings and learning issues in kids. The book was presented in a clever detective format which made it hard to put down. Each case study was a mystery waiting to be solved by the author. Wonderfully told and well written, I truly enjoyed it.
    I have recommended it to all my friends who
    Personally, it turned my 10 year old around and he is more focused and a better student in class since I've followed this book's advice.
    I think it probably applies to adults as well as kids. I 've lost 8 pounds in two weeks since I've followed the books healthy snack suggestions.
    Take a read. The book made a big difference in my family's health.

    This book is a must read for every parent! I wish doctors would read it too. I saw her give a presentation and have put my child on a multi vitamin and some fish oil supplements that she recommends and have seen a difference. It's so well written, easy read.

    I was blown away by how common these food issues are, as "triggers" for childhood issues, I wasn't open to looking into food as a source of some issues with my child... Kelly's warm, engaging approach and clinical medical background put me at ease and kept my attention. I was blown AWAY by how common these issues are, and how treatable / preventable so many of the things I was worried about can truly be, with changes to diet.
