A hugely popular book by Dr Alex Richardson. 

The right food choices can transform your child.

What your child eats can have a profound effect on his or her ability to read, write, concentrate and remember things. In fact, the right foods can actually improve your child's IQ and help with dyslexia, attention and hyperactivity.

In this cutting-edge book, Dr Alex Richardson, the UK's number one authority on how nutrition impacts children's behaviour and learning, exposes the truth about what children eat - or fail to eat. She explains why common culprit foods can be so damaging - and so irresistible - and shows how to bring the best choices into your child's diet. A few simple changes can be all it takes to make the world of difference.

  • The best - and the worst - food revealed
  • Easy steps to free your child from food traps
  • Simple, child-friendly recipes
  • Practical tips to help your child make the best food choices
  • Advice on key lifestyle factors, including TVs and computers
