"Written by one of the world's top nutritional physicians, "Eat, Play, and Be Healthy" gives scientifically sound and kitchen-tested advice on creating lifelong healthy eating habits. This book is a solution to the growing epidemic of nutrition-related health and behavior problems in children' - William Sears, M.D., author of "The Baby Book". 'An excellent guide for parents who want to provide the best possible nutritional health for their growing children' - Ronald Kleinman, M.D., former chairman of the Committee on Nutrition, American Academy of Pediatrics. With so much conflicting advice coming from the media, your friends, and parenting guides, it's hard to know whether you're making the right food choices for your kids. Written by a leading authority on pediatric nutrition, "Eat, Play, and Be Healthy" provides answers to all your childhood nutrition questions - and much more. "Eat, Play, and Be Healthy" shows you how to feed your children to ensure that their young bodies and minds enjoy full and healthy growth at every stage of development. Picking up where Dr. Walter C. Willett's international bestseller "Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy" left off, W. Allan Walker, M.D., shows how to apply the research-based Healthy Eating Pyramid to a child's unique needs. Drawing on his forty years of clinical research, as well as the latest scientific findings, he: offers a scientifically proven alternative to the FDA food pyramid; helps you shape your kids' eating habits from the start; and, provides fun, delicious recipes for healthy foods kids will want to eat.

Book Description McGraw-Hill, 2005. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: As a more scientifically proven alternative to the FDA food pyramid, Harvard professor Walter C. Willett, M.D., developed the Healthy Eating pyramid, which has gained wide acceptance through his bestselling book Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy. Now one of the world's top experts in pediatrics and nutrition, W. Allan Walker, M.D., shows how to apply the Healthy Eating pyramid and the latest nutrition research to meet the special nutritional needs of children. Eat, Play, and Be Healthy is an innovative look at how the right nutrition helps ensure full and healthy growth at every stage of development, and helps parents guide their children to proper nutrition from the very start. Dr. Walker sets the record straight on food issues that often confuse parents: Do kids need to eat a very low-fat diet? (Kids need fat, but they need to eat healthy fats, not saturated or trans fats.) Should kids avoid dairy and drink soy milk or rice milk? (Milk is good for most children.) Eat, Play, and Be Healthy also includes: Nutrition advice for children's changing needs from birth through age eight Menus and recipes for healthy foods kids will want to eat Recommendations for how much and what kind of meat and milk are best for your child With endorsements by Dr. William Sears, author of The Baby Book, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, and Dr. Nancy Krebs, former president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Eat, Play, and Be Healthy is poised to set the record straight on children's nutrition.
