Excellent Resource! 30 Oct. 2003
By K. Omori - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read several books on Down Syndrome, and this is one of the best. It has so much information, and is easy to read. The easy to use 'tools' offered in this book are great. Suggestions in this book will be helpful throughout a lifetime. While my child is in his late teens, it is still helpful for us, in preparing for his adult life. I also enjoyed reading about the younger children, and thinking 'I remember that, and I wished I had this book then'. I would recommend this book to parents, educators, and any other professionals also.

Geat Book 13 Jan. 2007
By J. Moist - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't let the long (boring) name fool you, it is a GREAT book! As our daughter is getting older (she is 16,) she is taking control of her diet. I can't be with her all the time, so I have to teach her to eat healthy. This might sound simple, but it isn't. Well meaning relatives offer her foods she shouldn't eat, and others don't know that she has some 'nutritional issues,' like Celiac Disease. Our daughter has to know what she can and can't eat, as well as portion control. The DSNH not only has information for me as a parent, but it has worksheets and teaching activities for our daughter to help her learn healthy eating habits and good fitness activities. Did I say that it is a GREAT book? We copy off the worksheets and post them on the fridge, so our daughter can track what she eats during the day to make sure that she has 'hit' at the necessary food groups and water intake goals. She even has her fitness goals for the week.

The book covers nutritional information and needs from birth through adulthood. Section three is the one that we are working on right now: Teaching Healthy Choices to Encourage Healthy Lifestyles. It has everything from menu planning, to cooking and fitness. It's full of readable and understandable information for me and hands on learning for our daughter. That is a great combination if you ask me!

Our daughter will be the one in control of her own cooking, fitness activities and health in a few years. This book will help me help her to make a smoother transition to become a more independent and healthy adult with Down Syndrome.

The Down Syndrome Nutrition Handbook 7 Nov. 2003
By Joan Guthrie Medlen - Published on
Format: Paperback
Posted for, Brian Chicoine, MD of the Adult Down Syndrome Center
The Down Syndrome Nutrition Handbook is an outstanding resource for people with Down syndrome throughout their life span. It contains excellent information and practical suggestions for people with Down syndrome and their families. A wide variety of topics are addressed from general nutrition to nutritional intervention for diabetes mellitus, celiac disease and other health issues.
The book is well written, person-centered, and health-centered. It is beneficial when read cover-to-cover as well as when saved for use as a reference book. In addition to the writing style, the pictures make it a valuable education tool for people with a wide variety of reading abilities.
I highly recommend this book for people with Down syndrome, their families and anyone who wants to help them with their nutritional goals.

Practical, Useful, Enjoyable Tool 1 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a principal that works with children with Down Syndrome - this book has been an excellent resource for me to share with families and with my staff. The author is extremely knowledgeable and shares her expertise in a manner that works for professionals and parents alike.
The book is easy to read and use. The content works for all ages and more than anything - it is clear that the author respects children and families.
It is a must as a resource for schools and families.

Good for the average person 29 Aug. 2006
By A. Brandt - Published on
Format: Paperback
You don't have to be an expert to understand the concepts in this book. It's written in such a way that the average person can understand the issues and put the tools to work. It tackles every feeding/eating issue that a person with Down Syndrome faces, from birth to adulthood. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who has a family member with Down Syndrome or who works with people with Down Syndrome.
