Book Reviews - Boost Your Child's Immune System by Lucy Burney

UK Kirkus Review » With the increasing controversies about immunisation, the use of antibiotics and the rise of the allergic generation, what every parent wants is a no-nonsense, understandable guide to these mazes. There are ethical dilemmas, there is misinformation, there is intense media debate and conflicting advice out there. Lucy Burney, parent, nutrition consultant and children's health specialist, helps parents navigate the maze. The premise of this book is a good one: it aims to give parents the knowledge they need to help give their children healthy immune systems. First there is some background science, clearly and comprehensibly presented, on the basics of immunology. Chapter two presents information on allergies and their diagnosis, and includes a section on how to cope when food exclusions are necessary. Burney then goes on to discuss, in sensible, impartial language, the pros and cons of antibiotic use. The burning issue of the decade - immunisation - is then tackled. As Burney says, 'Whether or not to vaccinate your child is one of the most emotive decisions that a parent has to make.' She does not issue edicts one way or the other, but presents the opposing arguments rationally. The bulk of this book deals with the impact of diet on immunity and general health. After a fascinating introduction to food types, safety and superfoods, Burney presents a wealth of recipes for different age groups: from babies' first foods to diets suitable for teenagers. Such delicious recipes as Garlic and Courgette Pasta and Blackberry Pies are offered for your child's delectation. Lucy Burney talks to parents in a straightforward style, treating us as intelligent human beings, providing the evidence we need to make our own decisions about our children's well-being, and giving us some great recipes to encourage the start of lifelong healthy eating.
