    This review is from: Super Nutrition for Babies: The Right Way to Feed Your Baby for Optimal Health (Paperback)
    I am so pleased with this book, which says alot because Ican be pretty picky when it comes to nutrition and my family’s health. I am a mother of three including a two month old, and also proud member of the WAPF, and I try to feed my family along those guidelines as much as possible. Nourishing Traditions is sort of like my kitchen bible, and I have even shelled out precious money to see Sally at a regional conference. I consider myself passionate about traditional nutrition, dedicated to my family’s health, and I love to share and promote these ideas. That being said, I have not been able to share NT with too many people because my friends who don’t have it already might find it less than user friendly. I especially have been wanting something geared towards feeding babies or pregnancy, because that is not only a crucial time, it is also a time when moms and dads are naturally more focused on nutrition.
    This book fits the bill as a book I am eager to share with others, yet I also learned a lot myself. It is easy to read, yet still packed with helpful information.
    This book offers so much that Nourishing Traditions just doesn’t. It is laid out in an easy to read format, most of the information is broken down into digestible bites with side bars and snippets interspersed for interesting reading. I read it cider to cover in a few sittings over two days. Also the authors take care to realize some of their ideas may be completely foreign to most people: raw milk, soft cooked eggs, organ meats. Not the typical rice flakes and strained peas that comes to some people’s minds when they think of feeding baby. But the authors back it up with clear evidence to the nutritional density of these foods, their historical use across cultures to ensure optimal health of babies, and the many, many reasons to avoid the nutrient deficient baby fare that is commonly fed our most precious resource, our children.

    Unfortunately, some people will probably still be to close minded to accept these ideas. Yes it is a little bit more work, compared to processed store bought baby food. But isn’t your baby worth it? I like that the authors, unlike Sally Fallon at times, seem to understand that parents aren’t going to follow the perfect diet all of the time, but just to try to do the best you can with the information you have. Do they expect you to feed your family raw liver, soft boiled eggs, and butter straight from the farm 100 percent of the time? No! But they take the time to explain that feeding foods like organ meats or fish eggs once a week can pay off big time in your child’s health and development. Finding a source of high quality raw dairy really is worth the time and money because it is so nutritionally dense and, from my point of view, the easiest “super food” to incorporate daily.

    Also, this diet heavy on high quality animal foods is a departure from the usual Brown rice, broccoli, and tofu Shenanigans pushed by a lot of people in the “healthy” diet circles. But the authors make it clear why such high quality animal products are the basis for your baby’s diet: nutritionally, animal foods run circles around plant foods, both in terms of quality macro nutrients and micro nutrients like zinc, iron and calcium. Babies don’t even produce enzymes to digest plant carbohydrates until well into their second year. Plant foods are nutritional light weights when it comes to what your baby needs; furthermore many plants contain anti nutrients that interfere with vitamin and mineral absorbtion, which is dangerous for your growing child.

    This book is divided into chapters for each stage of eating through baby and toddler years, with helpful facts about just what your baby really needs at each stage, as well as what is inappropriate, or best to wait on. Foods are divided into categories: crap, okay, pure, and power. The authors know sometimes we can fall short, but hopefully we aim for mostly pure and power foods, with some okay and very little crap. Also included are recipes that are fairly easy, look very tasty, many of which I have never tried. There is also a chapter for the nursing mom’s nutrition, and a good chapter on homemade formula, and a list of resources I find very helpful in the back. It’s overall more than just east this not that, because there are tons of helpful hints and facts throughout the book related to nutrition and overall health.
    This book is a must read in my opinion. this information is crucial to your child’s health in the short and long term. Keep an open mind, and you will enjoy it immensely. And one day, your child will thank you!!

    This review is from: Super Nutrition for Babies: The Right Way to Feed Your Baby for Optimal Health (Paperback)
    I discovered traditional/real food diets when my oldest daughter was about 14 months old. Before my discovery we were on what modern nutritionists would consider an excellent diet, gluten free, vegetable oils, organic fruits and veggies etc. Little did I know that this diet was seriously lacking in vital nutrients for me and my family. I have Celiacs Disease with a wide range of lingering symptoms and my daughter was off the charts small with cradle cap. Upon changing our diet to nutrient dense foods from grass fed animals, raw milk, fermented foods and drinks, coconut oils and grass fed butter our health flourished! I was delighted to see that this book was now available since my 5 month old son will be eating soon, I just wish it had been around back when my daughter was a baby.

    The book it self is very easy to read and understand, with well laid out pages including graphs and guides. Quick reference guides for month to month guidelines of acceptable foods per age. It separates common foods into categories from CRAP foods, OKAY foods, PURE foods and POWER foods. Even includes recipes to help those who are new to cooking with real food. It also contains guidelines on how mommy should eat while pregnant and nursing.

    Overall I am so happy that this book was written and I have a heart felt wish that all caregivers of children big and small should read this book. In an age of rampant chronic childhood illnesses our current methods of nourishing our children should be seriously reconsidered and the wisdom of our ancestors should once again be applied.

    The Principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation, July 3, 2012
    By 

    This review is from: Super Nutrition for Babies: The Right Way to Feed Your Baby for Optimal Health (Paperback)
    This badly needed book provides a blueprint for feeding your baby based squarely in the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Cod liver oil, liver and other organ meats, raw dairy, pastured animal fats and butter, bone broths, free-range eggs, lacto-fermented condiments and beverages and unrefined salt – all figure large in these pages. The authors stress the need for animal fats for neurological development, and warn against popular empty food for babies like juice and cereals. There are chapters devoted to our raw milk baby formula and to nutrient-dense diets for pregnant mothers.

    In addition to all this wonderful information, the authors have amassed an interesting collection of antique ads for canned baby food – not because they recommend canned baby food but because these ads all tout the benefits of animal foods like meat and liver for growing babies. Nowadays you can hardly find baby food meat in jars – it is all just vegetables and water. How would you feel if you were just fed vegetables and water? No wonder our babies are cranky and have trouble sleeping through the night!

    The authors have worked hard to get all the details in line with the principles of traditional diets; this book is highly recommended for anyone with a baby, or planning to have a baby. A big Thumbs UP. (Review by Sally Fallon Morell)”
