The book is addressed to parents and is packed with easily accessible information, dos and don'ts, charts, case histories, convincing and well referenced scientific studies, tips and recipes. Use this work to: understand why certain foods are good for your child's brain - and why some areot; give your child a head start at school; identify and solve mental health problems in children; and start to give your child the best diet possible.

If you care about your children's development..., 4 April 2006

This is the book to get. With two growing children (9 and 7 last time I looked, but growing up fast) I wanted to make sure that I knew and understood about the food we put into their bodies. This book is very clear about the right food choices and how to prepare them - not just to keep them healthy and developing normally, but more importantly what food and drink is optimal for their development.

Information is presented in a very easy to read style, is clearly well-researched and presents the facts about the foods children love to eat without hysteria or hyperbole. What is amazing is that by simply following the guidelines in the book you can affect your children's behaviour for the better - that is our experience anyway - and improve their development potential.

Some of the facts about the foods our children (used to) eat are very well-worth knowing if you care about keeping your children healthy and providing them with nutrition that actually helps their brains and minds develop.

This is a powerful and potentially life-changing book, and I recommend it to all parents interested in giving their children the bast opportunities in life - I guess that's most of us.
