I’ve written several posts on obesity and children. It seems that this plaque is getting worse. The results of eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) is having a wide range of effects on our children. Once they get a taste for fatty foods it becomes an uphill battle to get them to convert to a healthy lifestyle. My advice is to not let them get a taste in the first place. A great book for this is “Dr. Attwood’s Low-Fat Prescription for Kids” available on Amazon.com. There are numerous recipes that are really appealing to the young ones.
Two other books are worth mentioning: “The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell and “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease” by Caldwll B. Esselstyn, Jr. M.D.
A study of these three books will give you all the information you need on nutrition and help you not only change your life but the lives of all those that follow you.
