Durante miles de años, los seres humanos han prosperado sin "comida para bebés" (un invento de finales del siglo XIX). La raza humana ha conseguido llegar hasta aquí consumiendo en su mayor parte alimentos naturales. En las últimas décadas es cuando hemos empezado a planificar y procesar en exceso la comida, lo que nos ha conducido a ponernos constantemente a dieta, padecer enfermedades crónicas y trastornos alimentarios, desconfiar de nuestro cuerpo y sumirnos en una monumental confusión sobre cuál es el mejor modo de alimentarnos a nosotros mismos y a nuestras familias. Comer es una habilidad innata que las estrategias de marketing y una cultura de la dieta han complicado demasiado. Ya es hora de dejar atrás esta cultura de la dieta en nombre de toda la familia. ¡Todo comienza con el primer bocado del bebé! Cuando muestran indicios de estar preparados para tomar alimentos sólidos, los bebés pueden comer casi lo mismo que el resto de la familia. Además, al apoyar el proceso de autorregulación (otra habilidad innata) y centrarnos en alimentos naturales, contribuimos al desarrollo de niños, padres y familias más sanos. No es necesario que prepares una comida diferente únicamente para tu bebé ni que conviertas en puré todo lo que comes para ayudar a que tu hijo crezca de forma saludable. Con algo de paciencia, dedicación y habilidad, puedes transformar casi cualquier comida familiar en una apta para bebés. Siguiendo el método del baby-led weaning, las nutricionistas Leslie Schilling y Wendy Jo Peterson te ofrecen consejos, instrucciones paso a paso y recetas sencillas para que puedas asegurarte de que tu hijo entra en contacto con alimentos saludables y sabrosos lo antes posible.
Born to Eat
Author: Wendy Jo Peterson, Leslie Schilling
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.
For thousands of years, humans have thrived without “baby food” (which was invented in the late nineteenth century). Think about it: the human race has made it this far largely on whole food. Only in recent decades have we begun overthinking and over-processing our foods, which has led to chronic dieting, chronic disease, disordered eating, body distrust, and epidemic confusion about the best way to feed ourselves and families. Eating is an innate skill that has been overcomplicated by marketing schemes and a dieting culture. It’s time to leave the dieting culture behind for the whole family. It starts with the baby’s first bite! We are all Born to Eat and it seems only natural for us to start at the beginning—with our babies. When babies show signs of readiness for solid foods, they can eat almost everything the family eats and become healthy, happy eaters in the process. By honoring self-regulation (also an innate skill) and focusing on a whole food foundation, we can foster healthier children, parents, and families. You don’t have to cook another entire meal to feed just baby, nor blend everything you eat into a puree to support healthy growth in an infant. With a little patience, presence, and skill, you can transform nearly any family meal into a baby-friendly food. Who knew a little planning could have the whole family eating together, and better? Aside from the United States, most countries are accepting of babies starting of solids with the foods of the family. With a focus on self-feeding and a baby-led weaning approach, nutritionists and wellness experts Wendy Jo Peterson and Leslie Schilling provide age-based advice, step-by-step instructions, help for parents, and easy recipes so you can ensure that your infant is introduced to healthy and tasty food as early as possible.
Chronobiology and Obesity
Author: Marta Garaulet, Jose M. Ordovás
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Circadian rhythms are such an innate part of our lives that we rarely pause to speculate why they even exist. Some studies have suggested that the disruption of the circadian system may be causal for obesity and manifestations of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS). Shift-work, sleep-deprivation and bright-light-exposure at night are related to increased adiposity (obesity) and prevalence of MetS. It has been provided evidence of clock genes expression in human adipose tissue and demonstrated its association with different components of the MetS. Moreover, current studies are illustrating the particular role of different clock genes variants and their predicted haplotypes in MetS. The purpose of “Chronobiology and Obesity” is to describe the mechanisms implicated in the interaction between chonodisruption and metabolic-related illnesses, such as obesity and MetS, with different approaches.

Let Them Eat Dirt
Author: B. Brett Finlay, Marie-Claire Arrieta
Publisher: Algonquin Books
“A must-read . . . Takes you inside a child’s gut and shows you how to give kids the best immune start early in life.” —William Sears, MD, coauthor of The Baby Book Like the culture-changing Last Child in the Woods, here is the first parenting book to apply the latest cutting-edge scientific research about the human microbiome to the way we raise our children. In the two hundred years since we discovered that microbes cause infectious diseases, we’ve battled to keep them at bay. But a recent explosion of scientific knowledge has led to undeniable evidence that early exposure to these organisms is beneficial to a child’s well-being. Our modern lifestyle, with its emphasis on hyper-cleanliness, is taking a toll on children’s lifelong health. In this engaging and important book, microbiologists Brett Finlay and Marie-Claire Arrieta explain how the trillions of microbes that live in and on our bodies influence childhood development; why an imbalance of those microbes can lead to obesity, diabetes, and asthma, among other chronic conditions; and what parents can do--from conception on--to positively affect their own behaviors and those of their children. They describe how natural childbirth, breastfeeding, and solid foods influence children’s microbiota. They also offer practical advice on matters such as whether to sterilize food implements for babies, the use of antibiotics, the safety of vaccines, and why having pets is a good idea. Forward-thinking and revelatory, Let Them Eat Dirt is an essential book in helping us to nurture stronger, more resilient, happy, and healthy kids.

Inquiry and the Common Core
Author: Violet H. Harada, Sharon Coatney
Publisher: Libraries Unlimited
With the adoption of the CCSS in most of the nation's schools, educators and administrators at K-12 schools have a pressing need to find the best ways to implement these rigorous and comprehensive standards that challenge students to understand informational text and digital content at increasing levels of complexity. This text provides faculty with much-needed support in achieving this critical goal, thoroughly describing inquiry learning and how it links to the CCSS. The authors--nearly 30 contributors total, comprising librarians, library media specialists, educational leaders, teachers from the kindergarten level to college professors, and administrators, each with direct experience and knowledge regarding the subject matter--explain how the standards' emphasis on in-depth investigation and evidence-based reading and writing skills dovetail perfectly with inquiry-based learning initiatives. Acclaimed thought leaders such as Jean Donham, Kristin Fontischiaro, Leslie Maniotes, and Barbara Stripling clearly define and illuminate the librarian's role in school initiatives today and share lesson plans that have been proven effective in actual practice.
