The Food Doctor

I have just finished reading "The Food Doctor for Babies and Children". It is a book worth reading as it reveals how to ensure that your child is optimally nourished from his food. It looks at each age group and identifies the key nutritional requirements at that age group e.g. 0-6 months , 7-18 months etc.
It also deals with weight problems, fussy eating behavior ,food allergies and intolerances. It gives the top 40 foods for children which I really found useful. And I just can't wait to try out the recipes given at the end of the book....they are healthy and yummy at the same time. The book is practical and the principles of good eating are easy to apply....worth reading especially when you can make a difference in your child's health and development.

Wow...I want to have a look at that book. Does it deal with under-weight children?

It does provide information on underweight children and it gives some info of which the majority of people are unaware of. For example I knew that rapid spine development takes place in the womb but I did not know that there is another period of rapid spine development which is precisely the age group which Ibnat is in and which Adi will soon enter (2-3 years).
