WHAT’S EATING YOUR CHILD? The Hidden Connections Between Food and Childhood Ailments was just released on June 6th. Authored by Nutrition Detective Kelly Dorfman, MS, LND, this book is a wealth of resources for those parents who are interested in looking at different ways things your child ingests can be affecting their body and their health.
I know for me personally, there are things that I wasn’t aware of at all before reading this book- some that I was. I’m always trying to look for ways to keep my kids healthy and ward of illness without the use of pharmaceuticals. I do try to avoid high fructose corn syrup when I am able to because I can tell by the kids’ behavior within 5 minutes of them eating it that they’ve had HCFS. They get all kinds of hyper!! My biggest reason for being interested in this book, aside from curiosity, is that all three of my children suffer from multiple rounds of ear infections every winter- frequently ones that don’t clear up without multiple rounds of antibiotics. This makes me nuts and I’m actively trying to figure out a way to prevent them or a more natural way to help my kids get through them- I had ear infections the same way as a child and I’ve often wondered if there are things we can consume- or not consume- to help ward off infections in our ears.
