Dr. Greene or Daddy Greene?

Question

As a father of four, what is the most important thing you think about regarding your kids’ health?

Dr. Greene's Answer

Before babies are born, all of the amazing growth and development happens even if we are not aware of it. Our role is to supply a safe, loving environment, great food, and to take away their waste. After they are born, it’s not so different.

Kids are designed to grow and develop. Every ounce of who they become will be built from what they eat. They will learn about the world through our interactions with them.

To give them healthy bodies and sharp minds after they are born, we want to supply a safe loving environment, great nutrition, moderate mental and physical challenge, and to help them learn from mistakes.
