Shazzie, the UK’s most famous raw foodist, wrote this book with a mother’s love for her daughter. She researched the content for four years with the passion that only a mother would feel about this topic. Painstakingly recording her daughter’s food intake, staying on top of the lastest finds in the world of raw and vegan foods, researching supplements, and finding answers when people told her she had no reason to search for answers: Shazzie goes beyond a typical nutritionist giving stats.
The typical Australia/American diet is a major factor in the epidemic of obesity and poor health in the country’s children. Baby Greens helps parents establish healthy eating habits in their children—and themselves—through a diet rich in raw foods. A lively mix of education, philosophy, recipes, and activities, the book adapts the living foods approach for all ages and lifestyles. The first part of the book explains the principles of bioenergetic nutrition and shows how cutting-edge nutritional practices—including nutritional individuality, pH balance, terrain testing, and homeopathy—can dramatically improve a child’s health. In addition to recipes and resources, the second part offers insights into the holistic approach to pregnancy, breastfeeding, extended breastfeeding, weaning, food experimentation, play, and other daily activities. Written in reassuring, easy to understand language, Baby Greens empowers parents to step outside the fast food box and take a proactive approach to maintaining their family’s health and well-being.
This Australian Best-Seller offers the most unique collation of cutting-edge information and knowledge on holistic parenting — all in the one book! It has the most comprehensive list of reasons why food should be introduced in a childs diet. This is one of the best books out there I highly recommend this book.
