The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood
By William Sears, M.D., Martha Sears, R.N., James Sears, M.D. and Robert Sears, M.D.
It's hardly a secret that too many American children don't eat right. The frequency and severity of childhood illnesses - from depression to diabetes, and from limited attention spans to cholesterol imbalance - have reached an all-time high. Many of these illnesses are directly linked to the foods kids eat. With fast-food restaurants, junk food in schools, and high-risk sweeteners and trans fats in snacks marketed directly to children, parents need help! The Searses provide help with an eating plan that's already proven effective for countless families. $7.37 on amazon.com.
