For over a decade, I have worked in a field where I have had numerous and daily conversations with many doctors who have worked tirelessly to help children recover from a variety of chronic conditions such as autism, ADD/ADHD, auto immune disorders, allergies, obesity and diabetes. From what I have heard, there are many layers of underlying causes here, yet many say the most significant solution for treating these conditions is diet.
As a new mother, my own sleepless nights resulted more from my concern to provide the best nutrition for my daughter than from the typical night feedings and diaper changes. A new book written by Dr. Kathy Erlich, Super Nutrition for Babies, rescued me. It offers solid, sound nutritional guidelines that make sense, such as the importance of protein for a growing baby and how certain nutrients are lost when the food is heavily processed. This easy to read reference book has wonderful recipes, healthy alternatives for a nutrient-dense diet, and up-to-date research to ensure optimal nutrition for our children.
I would recommend this book to any doctor or parent who is concerned to provide a solid nutritional foundation for children. Dr. Erlich also presented a webinar for practitioners, Pediatric Nutrition and the Chronic Illness Epidemic (hosted by Energetix) to discuss this important topic.
Anyone (patients, parents, practitioners, etc.) is welcome to register for Dr. Erlich’s Super Nutrition for Babies Webinar on July 17 at 7 pm EDT.
