Today we’re talking about the importance of teaching children about health with Dr Max Pemberton who’s written a children’s body, mind and anatomy guide for children.
Dr Max is a writer, mental health doctor and Journalist. He has written 4 other books including, Trust Me I’m A (junior) Doctor which I read when I was a junior doctor 10 years ago and was serialised on Radio 4. His second book, Where Does It Hurt? details his experiences of working in an outreach project for the homeless and people addicted to drugs.
This new book explores the idea of children being aware of looking after themselves through food and nutrition and understanding the human body and how parents can facilitate that growth.
