Q&A With Pediatrician Jay Gordon MD

Q&A With Pediatrician Jay Gordon MD

Dr. Jay Gordon is a pediatrician that uses whole-food, plant-based nutrition as preventative medicine in his medical practice in California. In the above eleven-minute video, Dr. Gordon addresses common questions regarding children's nutritional needs and the importance of establishing good eating habits at home.

A few of the topics he covers are:  

  • The benefits of children eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables
  • How a plant-centered diet impacts children's developing brains and bodies
  • Raw vs cooked vegetables
  • Childhood obesity
  • What to say to children when they want to eat the junk food that their peers are eating

The video below was produced for "Copy-Kids TV." If you have a picky eater at home and mealtime is a constant struggle trying to get your little ones to eat their fruits and veggies, then your little ones may benefit from the "Copy-Kids" dvd. Copy-Kids is a "joy-filled video that encourages positive habits in young children, by watching and copying other kids. Produced for children aged 6 months to 5 years, Copy-Kids innovative video is fun and helps parents get their children hooked on healthy and positive habits."
