How to Reduce Your Child’s Sugar Intake

How to Reduce Your Child's Sugar Intake: A Quick and Easy Guide to Improving Your Family's Health by [Val Wilson]

More than 500 million people in the world are living with diabetes. This number is expected to double within the next three decades. This is an alarming statistic in a world that is also riddled with other debilitating illnesses and an ever-increasing cost of medical treatment. This book is a guide toward living a healthier lifestyle. One way to do that is by teaching children so that future generations will be healthier. Dr. Val Wilson has written an educational how-to book for all.

Dr. Val Wilson takes a methodical and pragmatic approach to the subject. The author acknowledges that sugar is easily accessible and available. Dr. Wilson also acknowledges that reducing sugar will not be easy especially for the rest of the family. She proceeds to identify the different types of sugars as well as some ingredients that you would never guess were sugar-based. Then, she outlines the effects of sugar on human health and life. As it turns out, diabetes is not the only adverse effect of sugar.

Dr. Val Wilson writes from a place of experience. She has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for four decades and that personal experience shows in this book. This book is incredibly well researched, comprehensive, and every chapter is full of educational details. Dr. Wilson does not inundate the book with scientific terms though. She makes it simple enough for anyone to read. The author inspires you to change the quality of your family’s diet and therefore health. She is looking to raise awareness especially for the hidden sugars in everyday meals and snacks. Her writing is honest and her methods are practical.

The book provides a variety of recipes that are both healthy and delicious. What I loved most about these recipes is that the ingredients are easily accessible.

The title may suggest that the book is directed towards improving the eating habits of children. However, I think that the methods in the book can benefit anyone. Teaching children how to develop good eating habits is the responsibility of the parents. This illuminating guide helps parents develop a keen sense for what to shop for at the market and what to avoid. This book gives parents the tools they need to make informed decisions that will have a large impact on the rest of their child’s life. This book goes beyond telling us that we need to eat healthy and gets into the details of how to accomplish that every day with actionable advice that I found to be practical and easy to implement.

How to Reduce Your Child’s Sugar Intake is an insightful account of how sugar makes its way into diets. It is a menu of sustainable methods for consistently reducing the amount of sugar intake. I would recommend this book to parents especially, but really anyone interested in eating and living better can benefit from this book.
