Product description

Review

"This book might change your perspective on real cleanliness . . . and along the way help you to raise healthier kids." (Giulia Enders, author of Gut)

"Very clearly written and well-explained – it stopped me worrying" (Evening Standard)

"Let Them Eat Dirt has turned my world on its head. The book is a rallying cry to parents to put down antibacterial wipes, throw out sterilising tablets and start making mud pies." (Guardian)

"A must-read for parents, teachers, and any healthcare provider for children, Let Them Eat Dirt takes you inside the inside tract of a child’s gut, and shows you how to give kids the best immune start early in life." (William Sears, author of The Baby Book)

"Parents around the world are bound to rejoice at the publication of Let Them Eat Dirt." (Sunday Times)

"This book is filled with practical advice for parents on how to positively impact their children’s health from natural childbirth to breastfeeding" (The Green Parent)
