Brain Food shows parents how to create a healthy balanced lifestyle for their kids with practical tips for every stage of a child's life. We learn that fueling their mind is as important as fueling their body. The kid-friendly recipes are a bonus! (Carole Lewis, First Place National Director)
BRAIN FOOD is a resource that takes the ingredients of the most up-to-date nutritional science and mixes in a liberal portion of common-sense parenting and combines them into a practical, fun, 'can-do' guide that any parent would want to have and use to help their child become more highly healthy. I highly recommend it. (Walt Larimore M.D., Family Physician and Author of SuperSized Kids: How to Rescue Your Child from the Obesity Threat, and God’s Design for the Highly Healthy Child and Teen)
