Feeding Our Children
Feeding Our Children is a comprehensive resource for parents and pediatric healthcare providers who want an inside look at how food can affect a child’s health, metabolism and brain function.
Feeding Our Children takes a Functional Medicine and nutrition-first approach to maximizing the health of the child. Each chapter walks the reader through an important nutritional and developmental stage: pregnancy, breast and formula feeding, first foods, through school-age and outlines proper nutrition at each crucial stage of development.
This book explains several critical areas of pediatric nutrition that have been often overlooked:
The Microbiome (our important probiotic intestinal bacteria)
Epigenetics (the ability of food to turn on genes that code for better health)
Child Neurodevelopment (Which foods help grow and maintain a healthy brain)
Feeding our Children empowers both parents and healthcare professionals by providing them with the resources, knowledge, and skills to navigate a child’s diet through these important early stages of life with confidence.
Eating for Two
Eating For Two is an essential pregnancy nutrition guidebook for expecting parents and healthcare providers such as obstetricians, midwives, and women’s health nurses.
This book provides up-to-date important information on how to support a healthy pregnancy using a nutrition-centered approach and explains how meeting nutrition needs during pregnancy and the critical First Thousand Days can shape a child’s health decades in the future.
This book teaches pregnant mothers how to choose foods, prenatal vitamins and supplements that feed the rapidly growing baby brain, support the important probiotic gut bacteria known as the Microbiome, and program the baby for future health by a process known as Epigenetics. These concepts are explained in straightforward language by a healthcare provider who truly understands nutrition.
Eating For Two contains condensed pregnancy information from Feeding Our Children and is intended for parents and healthcare providers who want to focus solely on nutrition during pregnancy.
WOW! Every new parent needs this book.
This is the book we’ve been waiting for! It’s packed with so much information to help us understand the role that food plays in the health of our children’s brain and body…I rarely say this about a book – but…”this one is a must for every parent.” Well done Dr. Flass! I’ll be recommending it to all my clients!
While I’ve come across and read other books written on the topic of best practices for feeding children, none have been as thorough, extensive, and all-encompassing as this one.
Dr. Flass’ book beautifully combines hard-core science with practical tips and beautifully blends in loving parental advice and his own pediatric and gastroenterology experience to create an all-encompassing encyclopedia for us all! This is a well-written, much-needed book that takes a deep dive into explaining best practices for optimal nutrition and gut health. Each section includes an in-depth review of the scientific literature, painstakingly addressing controversies, taking time and detail to differentiate dogma, doctrine, and opinion along the way.
