A practicing pediatrician, bestselling author, and spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics offers a simple, fool-proof, no fuss plan for raising kids who love eating nutritious food. As a pediatrician and mother of three boys, Dr. Tanya Altmann knows that good nutrition is essential for healthy kids. But parents today are bombarded with confusing, and sometimes harmful, information. Nutritional guidelines are constantly changing, and parents don’t know who to trust for medically sound, proven advice that works. In How to Feed Your Baby, Dr. Tanya cuts through the noise with a simple program that follows the safest, best practices for feeding babies and young children. She begins with the eleven foundation foods critical to brain development and growth—eggs, prunes, avocado, fish, yogurt/cheese/ milk, nuts, chicken/beans, fruit, green veggies, whole grains, and water—that should be the basis of every child’s diet in the three phases of their early life: infancy, toddler, and preschooler. She also offers guidance and information for introducing them into a child’s daily diet, and delicious, dietician-developed recipes that will help train young taste buds to enjoy and desire real, whole, non-processed foods. With How to Feed Your Baby parents will save time, money, and stress—and say goodbye to picky eating!

She exposes the brands and products that contain toxic and hormone-disrupting ingredients and gives guidelines on choosing safer products and organic produce that are free from toxic and persistent pesticides. She instructs you on making the move to meat, dairy, and eggs that are free of antibiotics, GMOs, growth hormones, and dangerous pathogens. She explains at what phases of childhood children are the most vulnerable and need more protection. And she includes delicious and kid-approved recipes to help you detoxify your cooking routine.

Explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed, and shows why self-feeding from the start of the weaning process is the healthiest way for your child to develop.

At about six months, most babies are ready to join the family at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves. This book is the definitive guide to this crucial period in your child's development, and shows you how to help your baby participate in family meals right from the start; experiment with food at his or her own pace; develop new abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewing; and learn to love a variety of foods and to enjoy mealtimes.--Frompublisher description.

Most Christians resist the idea that we are to pursue happiness. We are more comfortable with the idea of finding joy or being blessed. But seeking happiness seems too superficial or too flighty for people of faith. In Happy Church, Tim McConnell offers a radical call for Christians to reclaim happiness. Happiness flows from the joy of the Lord and being glad in Christ. When the church expresses happiness, we are making a countercultural choice that the world cannot help but notice. "It's time to bring the happy back," he says. "It's time to get serious about happiness." This is a book to read with your small group or congregation, with discussion questions to help you become happy together. You'll discover that God's call to the church is to radiate happiness—because we live in a world that desperately needs it.

For when you need the facts—not fear—about what food, drinks, activities, and procedures you should avoid during each month of your pregnancy. Over the years, Dr. Elisabeth Aron has soothed the worries of many soon-to-be moms who have come to her with questions such as: • Can I exercise during my first trimester? • Is canned tuna safe to eat throughout my pregnancy? • Do self-tanners contain chemicals I should be worried about? • I have to fly for work during my second trimester. Is this safe? • Is cookie-dough ice cream safe to eat? • Can I wear an underwire bra during my pregnancy? • I’m six months pregnant. Is it alright for me to have a glycolic peel facial? • Are peanuts safe to eat or will my baby develop a peanut allergy if I eat too many? • There is a lot of chlorine in my health club’s pool. Is that a good or bad thing? Pregnancy Do's and Don'ts includes hundreds of entries on possible concerns—from apple cider to zinc and everything in between. In each entry, Dr. Aron identifies the item, the possible cause for concern, and explains the bottom line—whether it is something a woman should avoid completely, something to take a better-safe-than-sorry approach toward, or something that is perfectly fine.
