I enjoyed Disease-Proof your Child by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. We followed all the advice in that book and within 3 weeks I had my kid eating and enjoying foods like kale and she was weaned off all the junk food, dairy and excessive grain consumption.<br><br>
I think Dr. Fuhrman has also been a guest here at MDC.<br><br>
Anyway, his book explains why what our kids eat NOW can increase their risks of disease later. He has lots of advice for changing your kitchen into a healthy kitchen and there are a bunch of kid-friendly and kid-tested recipes.<br><br>
I like that he actually eats the way he advises and so do his kids.<br><br>
It was easy for us to follow the rules of this type of lifestyle because we were most of the way there, but families who are currently on the SAD diet would probably have a harder time transitioning. It's still very possibly, but will take more committment.
Dr. Sears has a new book out (sorry, I forget the name of it but it was recently released- I'm sure it would be easy to look up online) and in paging through it, I think it would be very helpful. It is all about eating and living healthier, specifically for children.
I was going to suggest two books for you and I just read the other postings and those were the two books! I love them both:<br>

Thanks so much! I really appreciate your comments but I actually am not looking for books. I am looking for online articles to email my mother.<br><br>
I have some great books-including Disease Proof your Child.
If you go to the Dr. Sears website, you will find lots of information and most of it is set up in article form, usually by subject (not that I personally agree with everything he promotes, but it is probably a good "general" source).
