"Disease-Proof Your Child: Feeding Kids Right" by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.

In my books and workshops, I encourage parents to feed their children (and themselves) a whole foods diet made up of beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds, vegetables (especially dark green leafy ones like kale), and fruit - and to limit animal products if you eat them at all.

"Disease-Proof Your Child" by Joel Fuhrman pulls together the scientific studies that show the difference this kind of diet will make on your children now and in their future. Even what a mother eats when she's pregnant and breastfeeding can affect the future health of her children.

This book gives ample evidence and motiviation to steer clear of the typical American diet high in processed foods and fatty animal foods - as there is a clear link to those foods and cancer, diabetes, and many other diseases.

I highly recommend this book for it's excellent information - and after you are convinced of the need for a whole foods, plant-based diet - you can get my books for recipes and tips on how to prepare family meals using those ingredients.
