The Marin County Diet: Feed Your Children Right From Birth ($21.95) book contains everything a parent needs to know to design an optimal diet for the healthy child from infancy through the teenage years. It addresses the need for a practical nutrition book that contains evidence based information rather than "faith based" reasoning passed off as "science." It addresses the daily nutritional health issues of children in a specific, truthful, and friendly way. In addition to parents, this book will be of special interest to nursery schools, elementary and high school teachers, coaches, all health care providers, family physicians, pediatricians, and nurses who work with children, including pediatric and family nurse practitioners
Although Albert C. Goldberg, MD is a Board Certified Pediatrician with years of experience nurturing thousands of children (and their parents), he has recruited the experience of many other experts in nutrition. For the past twenty five years Dr. Goldberg has worked in countries such as Argentina, Chile, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Honduras, India, Mexico, Nepal, Philippines, Peru, Venezuela, and Vietnam, where poverty, ignorance, social disintegration and war have contributed to nutritional diseases, and he has brought back with him a keen understanding of the multi-cultural effects upon diet. In 2001 Dr. Goldberg was selected as one of fifty "Unsung Heroes Of Compassion" from around the world and was acknowledged personally by the His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama.
