Helping Children Develop a Positive Relationship with Food: A Practical Guide for Early Years ProfessionalsThis practical guide enables those working with young children to better understand, manage and support children’s relationship with food. Revealing the different ways in which children can relate to food, it gives accessible guidance and advice about how to help children to develop psychologically healthy eating habits and behaviours, and how to tackle feeding issues such as picky eating, obesity and food anxiety. Included is an easy-to-use reference section for trouble-shooting, which contains advice on how special needs such as autism can affect children’s feelings about food.
From allergies and ADHD to mental illnesses and obesity, new studies show the alarming rise of chronic diseases in children. A traditionally trained paediatric neurologist and a parent herself, Dr Maya Shetreat-Klein encountered the limits of conventional medicine when her son suffered a severe episode of asthma on his first birthday and began a backward slide in his development. Treatments failed to reverse his condition, so Dr Shetreat-Klein embarked on a scientific investigation, discovering that food was at the root of her son’s illness, affecting his digestive system, immune system and brain. The solution was shockingly simple: heal the food, heal the gut, heal the brain . . . and heal the child.
Dr Shetreat-Klein shifted the focus of her practice and has since successfully helped chronically ill patients from around the world. Revealing the profound connections between food, nature and children’s health, the book explains how food is constantly changing kids’ bodies, brains and even genes – for better or for worse. She also shares success stories from her practice and tips as a working mother of three on stocking healing foods (from veggies to chocolate!), reading labels and getting even picky eaters into the new menu.£7.99

Vitamin Cure For Infant And Toddler Health Problems: How to Prevent and Treat Young Children’s Health Problems Using Nutrition and Vitamin Supplementation (The Vitamin Cure)Most people’s diets are woefully inadequate for providing proper nutrition. Even good diets fail to deliver sufficient levels of nutrients. The Vitamin Cure book series highlights the safe and clinically effective use of vitamin supplements for a variety of illnesses. Research continues to prove the immense value of vitamins for maintaining health and fighting disease. The Vitamin Cure books, written by authors who are recognised experts in their field, deliver authoritative, up-to-date and practical information on taking vitamins for particular health problems.
Most paediatricians are so certain of what is proper care that they are super-sensitive about a parent telling them (or even suggesting) what to do. This is where this book istruly different – it is written by a paediatrician who actively supports empowering parents and who, also, strongly advocates nutritional medicine for babies and small children. THE VITAMIN CURE FOR INFANT AND TODDLER HEALTH PROBLEMS provides commonsense approaches to many of the problems parents face with young children. Topics include colic, ear infections, diarrhoea, fever, breastfeeding, solid foods, respiratory infections and flu, nappy rash, fretfulness, allergies, SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), pertussis (whooping cough) and a clear-cut, holistic discussion of vaccinations. Plus, the book discusses paediatric visits, child rearing, vitamin supplements, high-dose vitamin C therapy and much, much more.
Common sense, let’s-use-fewer-drugs healthcare worked back when Dr. Campbell was first in practice and it works now. This book favours a three-tiered approach for healthier children: (1) Good diet and a multivitamin, at a minimum; (2) Special dietary considerations and vitamin supplements for special needs and (3) appropriately high orthomolecular doses of nutrients when there is illness. Say Dr. Campbell: I learned valuable things from the genius doctor I first practised with about calming children, and parents. I always attempted to determine the reason for crying and treated accordingly, without drugs. Here is the much-awaited sequel to Drs. Ralph Campbell and Andrew W. Saul’s very popular previous work, The Vitamin Cure for Children’s Health Problems.

In addition, you’ll find a number of practical strategies you can use for dealing with food aversion, low appetite, sensory challenges, autism spectrum-related food disorders, super-tasters, oral motor delay, acid reflux, and food allergies.
