The Nourish Series: Baby Nutrition by Kim Bruno, Dan Gentle
The stats are in and nutritionally unhealthy babies (over fed but undernourished by use of processed foods) tend to grow up to be unhealthy adults. The Nourish Series: Baby Nutrition is a clear, concise and accurate book to better nutrition for your baby which can lead to better health for a lifetime. As a physician and mom, Dr. Bruno, the Baby Food Doctor, knows all too well and understands how frustrating the varying information parents receive on the topics of infant food introduction, first baby food, baby nutrition and early childhood supplements. This book is a research supported resource for parents which will serve to give them the proper information on these topics, not just more opinions. Topics covered are food introduction, including a comprehensive food introduction chart and top super foods for babies, dispelling the myths of nutrition such as the use of rice cereal for baby’s first food and its link between this and childhood obesity. The importance of organic and how to do it on a budget, plus tips and tricks on how making baby food can be a reality for most practically any parent.
Dr. Kim Bruno, an integrative nutritionist and functional healthcare provider is the creator of the online resource: www.BabyFoodDoctor.com. As a nationally renowned expert in the field of functional pediatric nutrition, Dr. Bruno uses nutrition to optimize health of both children and adults. Dr. Bruno’s journey to developing the Baby Food Doctor and dedicating her career to children started shortly after the birth of her own daughter. From her playgroup to her office, she was made acutely aware that parents were being given poor and misguided information, often lacking any substantial evidence about nutrition for their babies and children. This awareness, coupled with a lack of support and quality resources for parents, impassioned her to devote her career to educating and supporting families. By co-founding The Nourish Series with Dr. Gina Sirchio, Dr. Bruno can now reach a larger audience and provide valuable resources to parents and caregivers of the next generation. As the owner of the Colorado Center of Health and Nutrition, an integrative health clinic in Northern Colorado, Dr. Bruno’s practice is dedicated to working with female and pediatric clients with health and nutritional issues. She also works to promote prevention as a model of health care for all of her patients. She is well known in her field for successful treatment of gastrointestinal issues, auto-immune conditions, hormone, thyroid and adrenal balance, childhood allergies and skin issues. She believes that nutrition is the foundation of health and if we can build a strong foundation in our children we will have healthier and more vibrant adults.
