The modern American child's diet is awash in sugar—including mainstays such as juice, chocolate milk, sugary cereals, soda, energy drinks, and fast-food burgers and nuggets with added corn syrup and sweeteners, let alone candy and cookies prevalent at school parties and play dates. Beat Sugar Addiction Now! for Kids gives parents a proven 5-step plan for getting and keeping their child off sugar. Bestselling author and noted physician Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum and pediatric nutrition specialist Deborah Kennedy, Ph.D., give parents a toolkit for avoiding the common pitfalls such as guilt and temper tantrums, managing the 5-step process successfully on a day-to-day basis, and getting their child emotionally, as well as physically, unhooked from sugary drinks, breakfast foods, snacks, and desserts, as well as "hidden" sugars in foods.

“Dialing down the sugar content of your kids’ diets is very important but may seem daunting. BSAN for Kids fixes that. The book is loaded with guidance both sensible and sound, doled out one very manageable spoonful at a time. BSAN for Kids is where getting the health benefits of less sugar for your kids finally lands in the sweet spot!”

—David L. Katz, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.P.M., F.A.C.P., Director, Yale University Prevention Research Center and President and Founder, Turn the Tide Foundation, Inc.

“Drs. Teitelbaum and Kennedy have finally written the ultimate guide for parents who want to get their kids off sugar. By the time you finish this book, you’ll be an expert on how sugar is directly damaging your child’s health; more importantly, you’ll know how to do something about it! A must-have for any parent who wants the best for their child.”
—Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., author of The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth and the forthcoming The Great Cholesterol Myth
