I’d like to share a special book with you today, the sort of book I like to keep on my shelf and reference time and again. Optimum Nutrition for Your Child’s Mind: Maximize Your Child’s Potential will give you an arsenal of healthy information on what vitamins and minerals your child needs to improve the mind. The book is in-depth, fascinating, and helpful. No leaving you on a limb here on what foods will work! Authors Patrick Holford and Deborah Colson include graphs, charts, and lists of power foods along with their nutritional value so you know which direction to go.
For kids suffering from ADD, ADHD, and other such struggles, Optimum Nutrition for Your Child’s Mind can give parents a healthy, drug-free way out. Learn what foods are harmful to your child’s mind and may be intensifying the symptoms your child experiences. Information on dyslexia, hyperactivity, autism, sleep disorders and more are discussed and help is offered that any parent can easily implement.
If your child already has a pretty healthy diet, I still absolutely recommend this book. My son has had a full, healthy diet made up of whole foods from the very beginning. I’ve researched aplenty as evidenced by my compulsive need to share it with all of you! I still found myself taking notes on almost every page of this book. Holford and Colson also put a large focus on improving your child’s potential, even raising the IQ through diet. Backed by scientific studies and a plethora of trustworthy data, they’ll quickly have you convinced that without a doubt you are what you eat.
While this book focuses on fish a little more than I feel comfortable doing given the unfortunate mercury situation, I don’t discredit fish as a very powerful brain food. Regardless of where you stand on the fish issue though, you’ll find an abundance of healthy foods and advice on how to get your child’s brain revved and ready. For every suggestion of fish, Holford and Colson also offer numerous alternatives on where to find the powerful vitamins, minerals, fats and more that every growing mind needs to flourish. Easy-to-read charts may just have you copying them and taping them to the fridge for constant reference!
