NOURISH: A Modern Mother’s Guide to Child Nutrition by Tamar Henry
In this book, nutritionist Tamar Henry, tells us her personal and traumatic story about one of her son’s health challenges and what she has learnt about nutrition and health.
“Through her son’s adversity, subsequent recovery and her studies to become the health professional she is today, this mother of three adopted a new focus on nutrition that lends itself to her family’s current lifestyle.”
Nourish is a book dedicated to all mothers (and fathers!) and is a guide that takes you through the five focus points that Tamar believes and demonstrates are vital to the success of your child’s nutrition and overall health. The book gives you a holistic approach to providing and sustaining vital nutrition for the whole family and Tamar takes a very modern approach to explain how nutrition is the key to wellbeing and how simple but effective changes can lead to better overall health and a happier family.
As Tamar explains:
“I write to my audience as one mother to another; and although I offer important advice throughout NOURISH I sincerely empathise with the difficulties of motherhood and how challenging implementing change can be. I tell many personal stories and offer comments from mothers from all around the World, offering support and inspiration to promote change where it’s needed.”
The book is well-written and the layout is easy to follow whether you’re reading the book cover to cover or dipping in an out. It provides lots of interesting information, helpful tips and strategies for change. It also includes comments from children and parents and Q&A sections which is all very interesting.
Nourish is a book that makes you think about your child’s nutrition and health even more and gives you the tools you need to make improvements. It’s only 121 pages long and there’s no jargon — any parent can enjoy reading and learning from this book. Because the way it’s written, it should not be a problem to squeeze some reading time in — just read a few sections at a time if life is hectic (like it is for most parents!).
