This was the exact book I have been looking for. Other books have such difficult terminology in them, and I really appreciate the simple language in this book, so "us" non professionals can follow it! I had met the author last year at a covention, and he has a genuine passion for helping children stay healthy. His book is well written, and full of great information. The sample menus and healthy snacks are great, and all the book topics helped my children in all areas, whether getting proper sleep, hydration, exercise, and nutrition. A must book for any parent! This book is not for obese children, but for all types of children.
