9781509816101Healthy Food Healthy Gut Happy Child-1200x0x0This month a new Children’s Health and Nutrition book is coming out called Healthy Food, Healthy Gut, Happy Child by pediatric neurologist Maya Shetreat-Klein, MD. If you’re a parent -or aspiring to be- you will want to pick up a copy of this book.

The book tracks Dr Shetreat-Klein’s investigation into how nutrition can counteract the soaring number of ailments modern children are suffering from like ear infections, allergies, eczema and even neurological disorders. Revealing the profound connections between food, nature and children’s health, Healthy Food, Healthy Gut, Happy Child explains how food is constantly changing kids’ bodies, brains and even genes – for better or for worse. She also shares success stories from her practice and tips as a working mother of three on stocking healing foods (from veggies to chocolate!), reading labels and getting even picky eaters into the new menu.

The book is a thorough account of Dr Shetreat-Klein’s research and findings. It is no light, flick-through type of book, so do take the time to read and digest it well. You may be hesitant about incorporating certain tips but you are guaranteed to get some golden rules from this book and make your child -and yourself- a happier, healthier, more connected human being.
