The essential, parent-friendly guide to raising a healthy child in our increasingly toxic environment.
The second volume in the New York Times bestselling Green This! series, Growing Up Green: Baby and Child Care is a complete guide to raising healthy kids. Environmental activist and children's advocate Deirdre Imus addresses specific issues faced by children in every age group -- from infants to adolescents and beyond. With a focus on preventing rather than treating childhood illnesses, Deirdre concentrates on educating and empowering parents with information such as:
• How to make sure your child is vaccinated safely
• Which plastic bottles and toys are least toxic
• How to lobby for safer school environments and support children's environmental health studies
• Advice from leading "green" pediatricians and nationally recognized doctors such as Mehmet C. Oz, M.D.
Chock-full of research and advice, Growing Up Green makes it easy for you to introduce your child to the "living green" way of life.
