Excerpt from The Road to Good Nutrition All parents want their children to be well nourished. If this de sire is to be realized, the parents should have in mind a picture of what a well-nourished child is like and what their own child, with his particular heredity, is capable of attaining. If they will learn to recognize the characteristics of a well-nourished child, as a farmer or a housewife recognizes the characteristics of an excellent ear of corn or loaf of bread, they will be better able to direct their children along the road to good nutrition. If they have no standard by which to judge the child's nutrition they may think that it is good when in reality it is poor. A description of the well-nourished child is given in this bulletin, with a general outline of the care that should bring about this desirable condition. Some of the signs that indicate nutritional failure in a child are described, and the chief hazards to nutrition at various periods of a child's life are pointed out, so that parents, with the advice of their physician, may recognize and deal with these hazards. An effort has been made to give a general view of the problem of nutritional guidance throughout the period of growth, with special at tention to the continuity of the child's life. Throughout the bulletin emphasis has been put on the positive side of good nutrition and the methods of attaining it.

Our children are overfed and undernourished. Even if they are not living on pizza and ice cream, they may be eating foods that can have serious long-term effects on their health. An ever-growing body of research is revealing that the major diseases Americans suffer and die from are lifestyle related and to an extent preventable in that some of the root causes begin in childhood. Many cases of childhood imbalances, such as obesity, hyperactivity, dental problems, and learning disabilities can be aggravated by poor eating habits. Shelly Null has written a comprehensive guide to feeding children better, from the crib to young adulthood, without sacrificing flavor or fun, in Healthy Cooking for Kids: Building Blocks for a Lifetime of Good Nutrition.

A Guide to Good Nutrition for Teens and Preteens (2nd Ed.)

This book has information that helps fill the gap between modern food technology and nutrition, and the use of this knowledge by teenagers. Boys and girls are very much aware of the wonders of present-day technology. They want accurate scientific information to help them in various space-age ventures. Many know that vital nutrients in the foods they eat affect their appearance, strength, endurance and resistance to disease. Many do not know that foods affect their personalities, mental performance and the health of their future children. Teenage girls often have not been told that those who are poorly nourished during the teen years will have babies with more congenital abnormalities, lower pediatric ratings, and more stillborn and premature births than girls who are well-fed regardless of how carefully they eat during pregnancy. They will have more complications before, during and after pregnancy. The field of nutrition and food chemistry has become so complex that it is difficult for teenagers to take advantage of information now available. Many popular beliefs about foods are based on superstitions rather than scientific truths and many are too complicated to be useful. In this book only the most important food facts are presented. Simple, quick methods for calculating vitamin, mineral and calorie content of foods are described. Suggestions for economical eating are given, as well as inexpensive low calorie recipes. Medical checkups by a physician rather than self-medication are stressed. Since a student's physical appearance and his or her performance in sports and school work are affected by food intake over long periods of time, the prime goal of this book is to encourage consistently good food habits.

A history of dieting over two thousand years

Today we are urged from all sides to slim down and shape up, to shed a few pounds or lose life-threatening stones. The media's relentless obsession with size may be perceived as a twenty-first-century phenomenon, but as award-winning historian Louise Foxcroft shows, we have been struggling with what to eat, when and how much, ever since the Greeks and the Romans first pinched an inch. Meticulously researched, surprising and sometimes shocking, Calories and Corsets tells the epic story of our complicated relationship with food, the fashions and fads of body shape, and how cultural beliefs and social norms have changed over time. Combining research from medical journals, letters, articles and the dieting bestsellers we continue to devour (including one by an octogenarian Italian in the sixteenth century), Foxcroft reveals the extreme and often absurd lengths people will go to in order to achieve the perfect body, from eating carbolic soap to chewing every morsel hundreds of times to a tasteless pulp. This unique and witty history exposes the myths and anxieties that drive today's multi-billion pound dieting industry - and offers a welcome perspective on how we can be healthy and happy in our bodies.
