About Steve Biddulph

He is my favorite writer for helping me as a parent. I love his books. The two of them I have at home. Almost all parents these days are concern about children nutrition. In this article is more about children nutrition. From my heart, I recommend that you read at least The secret to happy children.

If you are a parent or even if you are not. I read his first book more than 10 years before having my son. I recommend his work. Steve Biddulph wrote a book before he had own kids. Now, He and his wife, Shaaron, have raised a son and daughter.

Here is one excerpt from a book The Secret of happy children. It is about children nutrition. We test it. We are changing eating habits. And as a result we changed our son’s behaviour.

Some of the books by Steve Biddulp. Personally, I recommend To read first The secrets of Happy children and then depend on what are raising. Boys or girls.

Food and kids behavior – children nutrition

Would you change your kid’s diet, if you knew it would make them do really well at school, be calm and happy themselves, and twice as pleasant to be around? Of course, you would. Did you know that poor food intake is thought to be a major factor in juvenile crime? And did you know that the same changes to diet can help you to feel better, have more energy, and perhaps avoid being overweight without eating less?
Sometimes it’s important to go back to the basics – and there’s nothing more basic than food. What we feed to our children, and when, has a profound effect.

Here are some simple guidelines on the psychological effects on food (children nutrition):


    Food serves two purposes. It provides nutrients for growing and for repairing our bodies, and it also gives us energy for physical and mental activity. Most people these days provide their kids with range of foods to give the right kind of energizing food – complex carbohydrates, and protein foods, which give steady, daylong energy release. This kind of diet will prevent fatigue, promote a steady, focused state of mind, and help children to feel settled and easy. In

    particular, children need to eat complex carbohydrates (whole grain foods), high protein foods, and perhaps some fresh foods such as fruit, for breakfast each day.We suggest that you experiment. Give your children protein food such eggs, meat, or fish with their breakfast each da two weeks. (If they complain they aren’t hungry at breakfast time, give them less for dinner the night before!) See for yourself how much more settled and happy they are at home and school.


    That’s right – breakfast! Breakfast is the meal that will provide energy throughout the day. Eating substantial foods in the afternoon or evening may nourish you and your kids, but the energy input will be wasted. Eating your main food intake just before you become active will also avoid obesity – food goes straight into the bloodstream, where it’s needed. When children or adults eat a big meal in the evening, then just sit around or sleep; the food is laid down into their fatty reserves. People can eat just as much, but changing WHEN they eat it, they’ll find that this will reduce weight problems.


    Sugar and refined sugar foods have a remarkably unpleasant effect on kids’ behavior. Many children have simply too much energy minutes after eating such rapid-release foods. They become edgy, hyperactive, and just plain naughty. Blood tests show that this energy release peaks early, and the child’s blood sugar drops below where it started, as the body struggles to cope. Thus, children have a midmorning sag, in which they cannot concentrate, and become lazy and unfocused.


    Additives and dyes in foods have complex and individual effects.
    In addition to observing what your child reacts to, you’ll want to keep in mind that some foods are generally a problem for almost every child. The need to reduce sugar has already been mentioned especially at breakfast and lunchtime. Tartrazine (E102), which is found in yellow-dyed foods, can cause violent hours of hyperactivity in children. Phosphates (found in processed foods such as hot dogs, commercial hamburgers, processed cheese, instant soup, and toppings) are strongly implicated.
    The simplest and most effective thing you can do is feed your kids good food earlier in the day, so they just won’t get as hungry for junk. Likewise, if your child is going to a party where the parents are still living in the 1950s diet-wise (soft drinks, cakes, ice-cream, and lollipops), then feed your kids before they go and minimize the damage!

Boys need to be parented in a different way from girls with their own very special psychological and physical make-up. Home, society and education have failed boys badly – and these failures lead to unhappy men who cannot fully become happy, responsible, emotionally-confident adults. While it is essential that boys spend more time learning about manhood from their fathers, Biddulph updates his classic to include helpful information for mothers and single mothers with baby boys. This extended edition explores some important topics: • How ADHD may be caused by stress in the first year of life. • Whether boys should start school later than girls. • Help for single mothers raising sons. • How to choose a sport that does better than harm. • What we can do about boys and binge drinking. • What science can tell us about teenage boys and driving – and how we can keep our sons safe. Raising Boys offers parents real-life situations, thought-provoking insights, humour, and help.
Today, things have changed. It’s girls that are in trouble. There has been a sudden and universal deterioration in girls’ mental health, starting in primary school and devastating the teen years. Steve Biddulph’s Raising Girls is both a guidebook and a call-to-arms for parents. The five key stages of girlhood are laid out so that you know exactly what matters at which age, and how to build strength and connectedness into your daughter from infancy onwards. Raising Girls is both fierce and tender in its mission to help girls more at every age. It’s a book for parents who love their daughters deeply, whether they are newborns, teenagers, young women – or anywhere in between. Feeling secure, becoming an explorer, getting along with others, finding her soul, and becoming a woman – at last, there is a clear map of girls’ minds that accepts no limitations, narrow roles or selling-out of your daughter’s potential or uniqueness. All the hazards are signposted – bullying, eating disorders, body image and depression, social media harms and helps – as are concrete and simple measures for both mums and dads to help prevent their daughters from becoming victims.-children nutrition and eating habits
