Kids, Food, Health 1,2 & 3 By Eve Reed

Kids Food Health 1

Nutrition and your child’s development Choosing good nutrition for your child ought to be easy, but the amount of confusing and conflicting parenting information is increasing all the time. Nowhere is this more evident than in the area of infant nutrition. In this book, the authors outline the ample benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and child, provide simple and clear options for feeding your infant, and explain important health concerns. The foods you give your infant form the basis for your child’s nutrition and health, both now and in the future. The authors, Dr Patricia McVeagh and Eve Reed, specialise in children’s health and, on a daily basis, answer queries and concerns from parents. They draw on their collective experience to provide parents with important medical and nutritional information in this book.

Kids Food Health 2

Nutrition and your child’s development – from toddler to preschooler

Children in these years develop assertive independence and have a reputation for being fussy eaters. At no other age is there such a potential for small changes in diet to significantly impact on health. However, they know when they are hungry and when they are not, and if we respect this and apply a few simple rules, good nutrition at this age is easy. The authors, Dr Patricia McVeagh and Eve Reed, specialise in children’s health and nutrition, and on a daily basis, answer queries and concerns from parents. In this book they draw on their collective experience to provide parents with important medical and nutritional information – and simple, clear options for feeding toddlers and preschoolers.

Kids Food Health 3

Nutrition and your child’s development – from school-age to teenage

During a child’s school years, eating behaviours are not always conducive to good nutrition. The peer group becomes important in moulding children’s food preferences, which are also influenced by exposure to food advertising. This occurs at a crucial time when some nutrient intakes such as iron and calcium are critical, and when serious nutritional problems – including obesity and anorexia nervosa – can occur. In this book the authors aim to guide parents in establishing healthy eating habits that their children will carry into adulthood.
