Five-month-old Grace suffers from acid reflux, while Mark, age four, struggles with weight gain and David, age seven, must cope with severe food allergies. The boys also suffer from asthma and their parents, a busy father and a full-time mom, need help managing this condition as well as the eating issues and the family’s time management problems. With advice from dietary and medical experts, veteran nurse and midwife Gráinne Ryan introduces dietary assessments, customized eating plans, and clinical checkup schedules that address the family’s needs.
