A simple plan for optimizing your child's eating habits

I've been a fan of Dr. Sears for quite some time.  I love his common sense approach to children's health, vaccines, attachment parenting and such.  The fact that his wife is an RN tells me he must be a smart man, and the fact that they have a son with Down syndrome, endears me to the Sears clan even further. :) 

I just finished reading his book on Childhood nutrition, "The Nutrition Deficit Disorder Book."

It emphasizes the need for solid nutrition, whole foods, and smart fats to keep our kids healthy and ready to learn.  Also, the book gives great tips on how to teach your children about making healthy choices in a simple easy to understand way.  Already my kids understand some much more about how and why we make the choices that we do.

There is also a website detailing their L.E.A.N kids program here.  Enjoy!


  1. I love the new look of your blog!

  2. Jen-It's on my kindle, but i'll be happy to loan it to you. That's the only downfall to the kindle that I've found so far, makes sharing more difficult!
