Book Review - What's Eating Your Child?

About the Book
If you could quickly and effectively cure your child’s ear infection, moodiness, or frequent colds with food instead of drugs, which option would you choose?

  • Aggression w Allergies w Anxiety w Bad breath w Behavioral issues w Bloating w Clumsiness w Colic 
  • Constipation w Depression w Developmental delays w Diarrhea w Ear infections w Eating disorders
  • Failure to thrive w Frequent illness w Hives, rashes, and eczema w Hoarse voice w Insomnia w Joint pain

My Take on the Book
This book takes complex information for parents and makes it simple. The author does an amazing job at helping parents understand what their child should be eating and how this good food and other foods impact the body. Though I think of myself as health conscious, I learned a lot in this book and I know that other parents will as well! The book was easy to read and to understand and I loved the fact that the author used real life examples within the book to solidify her points.

This is a perfect book for any parent or for anyone that works with, or has children around them in their life. You will learn so much by reading this book!
