9780044403005: Children's Food: The Good, the Bad and the Useless

Young children represent a huge market for the makers of processed food. Within their first year, children are starting to eat the record quantities of sweets and crisps, biscuits, soft drinks and ice creams consumed in Britain, to a value estimated to exceed 8 billion pounds annually. Before school age they are consuming 10 million meals a week. This book looks at the bewildering array of foods available for children from their earliest days and offers ways of judging what is good and what is bad on the shelves of our shops. It also considers the dietary recommendations being made by professional health workers and how these can be met from the foods available to us. It gives tables showing the nutrients children have to eat to grow healthily and the foods that can give them these nutrients. The author also considers the ways in which the law controls - or fails to control - the content of children's foods and how it is sold and considers what further barriers remain to be overcome in parents' continuing battle to keep their children healthy. Dr Lobstein has also written "Food Adulteration and How to Beat It". --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
