During a child's school years, eating behaviours are not always conducive to good nutrition.
The peer group becomes important in moulding children's food preferences, which are also influenced by exposure to food advertising. This occurs at a crucial time when some nutrient intakes such as iron and calcium are critical, and when serious nutritious problems - including obesity and anorexia nervosa - can occur.
In this book the authors guide parents in establishing healthy eating habits that their children will carry into adulthood.
Topics covered include : fast food; food additives; nutritional breakfasts and lunches; food for sport (and learning); vegetarian diets; dental care; growth and weight issues; eating disorders; allergies; recurrent abdominal pain; constipation; gastroenteritis; food and behaviour; and growth charts.
