In his private practice, Joel Fuhrman, M.D. works with many families to turn around their health and eating habits and helps children with recurrent medial problems recover their health with nutritional interventions, avoiding the need for further medication.
Backed up by a multitude of scientific studies, Dr. Fuhrman explains how eating particular foods (and avoiding others) can have a significant impact on your child’s resistance to dangerous infections and have a dramatic effect on reducing the occurrence of illnesses like ear infections, asthma, and allergies. The right foods introduced early in life can also positively impact your child’s IQ and success in school.
Dr. Fuhrman presents the fascinating science that demonstrates that the current epidemic of adult cancers and other diseases is closely linked to what we eat in the first quarter of life. He explains how eating right in childhood is the most powerful weapon against developing cancer, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune disorders in the future.
His nutrient-rich dietary recommendations give parents the information they need to ensure that their children are eating right to maintain a healthy mind and body. Moreover, he will give parents guidelines on how to get even the pickiest eater to learn to love healthy food. Also featured are his child-tested, kid-friendly recipes that are delicious, easy-to-prepare, and great for the whole family.
Every parent needs this book so that they can make sure that they are doing everything they can for their children’s health.
