A HEALTHY YOU: Tame Africa s Child Malnutrition describes the links that connect weaning diarrhea, lactose intolerance, protein malnutrition and the dietary staple of maize. The author observes that the malnutrition has created an infant feeding dilemma across the African nation, evidenced by the importation of pooled breast milk into the continent to feed very ill infants. To address this problem, she highlights the significance of micronutrients in the diet and offers tips on good weaning and healing diets. Additionally, she emphasizes the importance of understanding modern food technologies, including processed foods and environmental degradation.

About the Author:

The author grew up in Western Kenya, where malnutrition is common but is frequently mistaken for witchcraft and the evil eye . As a pediatrician with a research interest in nutrition, she observed a link between weaning diarrhea and lactose intolerance. This started her on a nutritional journey spanning over two decades, during which she noted overt disparities in nutritional status among Kenyan communities due to a dietary staple of maize. The author is an advocate for breastfeeding and a critic of environmental degradation, processed foods and modern food technologies that weaken rather than enhance the nutrient content of foods.
