How To Get Kids to Eat Great and Love It!

Who worries about heart attack risks in a four-year old, adult-onset type diabetes in a twelve-year old, or cancer risks from the food we eat?  Well, perhaps we should be concerned.  According to Dr. Christine Wood, the risk of developing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can be significantly reduced through proper nutrition beginning in Childhood.  How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It! Is divided into three sections: 

  • The first section discusses health trends, the toxic environment, and how instilling lifelong healthy eating habits in our youth will help them with these issues.
  • The second section specifically outlines easy-to-implement tips for parents to encourage good nutrition from birth through adolescence.
  • The final section provides research on the relationship of diet and additional nutrients on the risks of common diseases such as allergies, asthma, ear infections, eczema and ADD.

Book reveals how you can better protect your child’s health

“Dr. Christine Wood shares vital information about why healthy eating along with nutritional supplements will improve your child’s health. Many of the chronic degenerative diseases begin in childhood, and it is extremely important to develop healthy lifestyle habits in childhood. Medical science has forgotten about our greatest defense against disease — that is our own body. I encourage every parent to read Dr. Wood’s book and learn how you can better protect your child’s health.”

Great information on nutrition for everyone

“I just wanted to thank Dr. Wood for taking the time to write her book, How to Get Kids to Eat Great and Love It! She has really inspired me! I have a whole new game plan for the kids now, thanks to her. I especially like her ideas on lunches. I never thought of roasting a chicken to use for sandwiches. No more lunchmeat for this gang. Getting kids to eat well is always a challenge, but Dr. Wood gives some great ideas for all ages. The book has easy to understand information on diet and nutrition and tips to help the whole family eat wiser. This would make a great gift for a new mom.  Wonderful book! Thanks so much.”

Best book on identifying difference between colic and gas

“We had a girl on October 22.  She’s so adorable. The other night Hannah started screaming around 8 pm, and it lasted until midnight! I thought it was colic but wasn’t sure. SO I got all my books out (American Academy of Pediatrics guide to nutrition ? Dr. Spock, Mayo Clinic and Dr. Wood’s book How to Get Kids to Eat Great and Love It!) ? and Dr. Wood’s book was the only one that explained it in a way that I could understand. Turns out that Hannah does not have colic ? just gas, and I just need to exclude milk from my diet. It only happened that one night. I think Dr. Wood’s book is excellent and will share it with other parents on my web site.

Changed eating habits after reading this book

“I read Dr. Christine Wood’s book, How to Get Kids to Eat Great and Love It! as part of an editing assignment.  I’m 26, have no children, and my mom has been trying to get me to eat better since I’ve been out of the nest.  As soon as I read this book, I realized how valid her nagging was.  The clear and concise way Dr. Wood explains why good nutrition is essential to our overall health and energy made me want to change my bad eating habits.  After finishing Dr. Wood’s book, I called my mom and told her I was no longer going to eat junk and fast?foods and for her to send me some of the ‘Essentials’ (nutritional supplements of guaranteed pharmaceutical grade quality) which she had been raving about for the past four years.  I thought I felt good before, but now I feel terrific.  I participate in a lot of physical activities like ice-skating, aerobics, and running and now I have plenty of energy to spare.  Thank you Dr. Wood.  I think every teenager and ‘grown kid’ should read this book.”

Breastfeeding section helps

“Thank you so much for your book!  The breastfeeding section has helped me a lot.  I was ready to quit, but with help from your book and a lactation nurse I am hanging in there.”

Great reference

“I was given this book after my wife and I had our first son. We read this book from front to back and still use it as a reference. By using what we read, our son doesn’t enjoy a lot of processed foods, but loves to eat fruits and even vegetables! This is quite a change from my sister-in-law’s kids who love chicken nuggets and McDonalds. Also, because we have changed the diet for our son, my wife and I have found ourselves eating better. If you have friends or family with children, or who are expecting, I highly recommend this book for them.”

A MUST for every parent

I bought this book shortly after the birth of my daughter, now 15 months old. My family has a history of weight & heart problems and I wanted to break this cycle. I don’t want my daughter to face these issues as an adult. I read this book from cover to cover and continue to refer to it on a regular basis. My daughter doesn’t eat sugar or processed foods. My family & friends can’t get over the fact that  she eats tofu, fruits & vegetables. They can’t understand why their kids won’t. As a result of establishing a diet for my daughter, my husband & I have had to make changes ourselves. My daughter is extremely healthy & happy. I have learned so much about the benefits of organic foods & a diet rich in fruits & vegetables. You’ll also be amazed at what kids DON’T need in their diets (hot dogs, chicken nuggets, chips, soda!) I buy this book for all my friends that are expecting. If you truly want to give your child a gift, give them the gift of good health. This book will guide you, simply & thoroughly, in that process. I know my daughter has gotten a healthy start in life because I’ve applied this information to our lives.

The book gives practical, easy to follow advice

When my son was born, I checked out many of the popular books for new mothers. Although there are many good titles out there, I couldn’t really find one book that dealt with all the questions I had about the topic that comes up most frequently – FEEDING! The other well known books, such as What to Expect In Your First Year, and Your Baby & Child have so much information that it’s hard to consult them for simple, easy to find guidelines on food. This book has been a real help for me now that my son is starting on solids. The author is a practicing pediatrician and it’s evident in the practical and real life nature of her advice. The other great thing about it is that the author never condescends to the reader – she includes all of the nutritional background for her advice.
I’ll be giving this book as a gift, and not only for new parents. The book covers kids through adolescence – that’s something that the other child-rearing volumes definitely don’t offer.
