What's Eating Your Child? Book Review and Giveaway!


Do you ever wonder what could be causing your child recurrent ear infections? constipation? allergies? or other health problems?

Did you ever think that the food they eat or better yet what they are eating affects all those factors? I have on many occasions. I guess that's why as I gotten older and have 2 different age groups of kids I decide to try a more natural approach to treating my kids.

This is another reason why I jumped at the opportunity to get to review this book!

What’s Eating Your Child? is about the connections between common ailments such as chronic ear infections, reflux, tummy aches, picky eating, poor growth, mood and behavior problems and your child’s diet. Most people agree that a good diet is important but few know how to decipher the effect food has on their health. What’s Eating Your Child? will help parents, medical professionals, teachers and caretakers identify possible dietary links and address the problem.

Kelly Dorfman, the author of this wonderful book, is a health program planner and nutritionist with twenty-nine years of clinical experience. Her specialty is developing nutrition and lifestyle strategies to address complex health problems from autism to bone loss to rare genetic disorders. Physicians and other medical professionals refer cases to her for insight when traditional methods do not attain optimal results.

I can't say enough about this book as it has so much material to read and insight. She gives you the tools to use to be a nutritional detective so you as a parent can help pin point the problem. It really makes you think. I was just in awe over the whole book. I learned a lot. I really recommend this a must read to any parent that is facing health concerns with their children.

I think this is a definite must read book!

  2. Really fantastic information you have posted here. A child’s body doesn’t have the time to figure out if it’s growing improperly: it just needs to grow. It needs to get bigger, stronger, faster, and it’s going to do it whether the conditions for growth are potent or not.

  3. I didn't know about the connection between Spring Allergies and ADHD behavior -- 'His research found that two thirds of kids with ADHD had some level of behavior/academic deterioration in the spring, linking pollen reactions to the regressive behaviors.'

  12. I learned that increasing fiber can actually make constipation worse in children.

    Thanks for the great giveaway - I could really use this with my almost 2 year old who still has moderate eczema!
