9780349407487: Secrets of the World's Healthiest Children: Why Japanese children have the longest, healthiest lives - and how yours can too

This is the U.S. Paperback Edition.

We all want our children to be healthy and happy, but food - the very thing that should nourish the next generation - has become a battleground for many families, and the source of much confusion and controversy in the media.

In this inspiring book, husband-and-wife team Naomi Moriyama - herself born and raised in Japan - and William Doyle examine the evidence that Japanese children enjoy the healthiest lives in the world, distilling the facts into seven practical steps that all parents can take to nurture their child's health.


*How to tweak, rather than overhaul, your family's meals to make them much healthier

*Why you should adopt a relaxed attitude and not demonize foods

*The importance of repeatedly exposing children to new foods - and how to do it effectively

*Why allowing children to serve themselves - and get involved in food preparation - will help them to foster good habits

*How to nurture a Japanese-style 'wrap-around' family lifestyle that encourages a lifelong healthy attitude to food and physical activity

Packed with guidance from leading health researchers and doctors, comprehensive practical advice and a recipe section of delicious Japanese-style meals!

Secrets of the World's Healthiest Children will help you take the necessary steps to guide your child to a long and healthy life.
