Why Japanese children have the longest, healthiest lives – and how yours can too
Studies show that Japanese children are the world’s healthiest children. Secrets of the World’s Healthiest Children explains why and shows you how to achieve the same results with your own children.
A recent global analysis by The Lancet revealed that Japanese children are the healthiest in the world. Bestselling author and Tokyo-born Naomi Moriyama set out to discover the secrets of Japan’s success. Travelling with her young son, Naomi interviewed scientists, doctors and researchers in Japan, the US and the rest of the world as well as gathering the insights of Japanese mums.
The result: a highly practical and revolutionary guide that will help you establish healthy eating and lifestyle habits that will last a lifetime. In Secrets of the World’s Healthiest Children, Naomi and her husband William Doyle reveal life-changing behaviours and tips that will help any parent achieve the results they want.

“The recommendations are sensible, achievable and evidence-based; rooted in science, intuition and precedence. They are consistent with my mantra of the importance of getting back to the basics: sleep well, eat well, move well and avoid toxins – the fundamental laws of health.”

“A very sensible and encouraging list of “do’s” – rather than “don’ts” – that will make for healthy, long living!”
