Nutrition for Children: A No-nonsense Guide for Parents

Front Cover
M&K Update Ltd, 2008 - Children - 101 pages
How nice it would be to find a book about childrenOCOs nutrition that was written for parents by a parent. Such a book would be straightforward, easy to understand, and would not be full of obscure facts and statistics. Written by a father and nutritionist with over five years experience giving lectures on nutrition and health promotion to parents and children of all ages, this is such a book. There is no claim for it to be the most comprehensive OCytextOCO on nutrition, but it is written for parents and carers of children who are truly concerned about their health."
