Cure Your Child with Food

By Kelly Dorfman MS LDN
Kelly Dorfman’s classic book, “What’s Eating Your Child?” (now called “Cure Your Child with Food”) is a must-read for parents of children with any kind of digestive, neurological or behavioral issue. She teaches you, as a parent, to think as a “nutrition detective”, to figure out if there’s something in your child’s diet that is causing ear infections, tummy aches, rashes, constipation, acid reflux, insomnia or even picky eating.

The Hidden Connection Between Nutrition and Childhood Ailments

Kelly Dorfman is one of the world’s foremost experts on using nutrition therapeutically to improve brain function, energy and mood. She holds a master’s degree in nutrition/biology and is a licensed nutrition dietitian. She is a co-founder of Developmental Delay Resources, which merged with Epidemic Answers in 2013.

In this book, Ms. Dorfman gives us clues as to what might be causing issues such as:

She also offers suggestions for supplements that might help as well as tips for working with your pediatrician. For example, in the a chapter about failure to thrive, she recommends testing your child for zinc deficiency, as it can be a cause for picky eating.

What most people don’t know is that food and diet also play a huge part in the symptoms of ADHD, autism, bipolar disorder, dyspraxia or Sensory Processing Disorder. In this book, Ms. Dorfman shows us how food sensitivities and nutritional deficiencies contribute tremendously to these symptoms.

We recommend this book to any parent who has a child with any of these issues. It’s very well written and easy-to-follow with lots of practical advice.
