Primal Kids – Real Food for Growing Bodies!

Primal Kids – Real Food for Growing Bodies!

by | Sep 21, 2012 | Baby and Kids Food, Food, Food Videos | 2 comments

Long before I was a mother, I started watching kids eat. As a cafe waitress, I would cringe while serving family meals. For the parents: grilled chicken, steak or fish with salad or vegetables. For the kids: chips (french fries), a milkshake and maybe some chicken nuggets or a mini pizza. The kids food came frozen in a box with ingredients like hydrolyzed vegetable protein, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial flavours (like MSG) and colours, preservatives of every number, hydrogenated vegetable oils, refined flours, and maybe a bit of chicken scraps. Many of the kids knew better than to eat it. Their instincts kicked in and they would whine while the parents tried to co-erce their “picky eaters” into finishing the so-called food. Parents have somehow became convinced that kids won’t eat the same nutritious food as adults, but we’re here with Kaiya to debunk that myth and save your kids from “kid food”.

In this video, Kaiya is 2 1/2  to just over 3 years old. Most adults are absolutely amazed by what Kaiya eats, as if she’s some alien child because she likes the same food that her parents do. But this food is simply all Kaiya knows, and all she has ever eaten her whole life. We are not wonder parents or health food nazis; we just serve Kaiya the same nutritious foods that we eat.

At 3 years and 2 months, Kaiya loves sweet potato, eggplant, red capsicum (bell pepper), beetroot (beets), green beans, tomatoes, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin, carrot, onion, garlic, sauerkraut, cabbage, cooked spinach, veggie juice, kale chips, rice, liver pate, nuts, fruit, chicken, fish, lamb, pork and beef. She does not like zucchini, asparagus, raw spinach, or cucumber. Besides those in the video, other meals she eats with us regularly are mild curries, osso bucco, liver and onions, pork belly roast with crackling, stir-fries, homemade soups, meatloaf, lamb shanks, and raw grated veg salads.

How Milk Became So Dangerous

The conflicting information is driving us all mad!! On the one hand we hear: Milk Does a Body Good!. It’s essential for calcium requirements, Vitamin D, strong bones and healthy children. On the other hand we hear: Milk causes mucus. It leads to lactose intolerance and ear infections. It’s too fatty. It contains Bovine Growth Hormone. Our societal response to this confusion is low-fat milk, skim milk, no-fat milk, soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, oat milk, organic milk, BGH-free milk, no milk. Just more confusion. So what’s gone wrong and where do we go from here?

I Dream of Organic Food in Greece!

After reading this, I’d hope you feel the same! As a an advocate of all things Primal, eating organic food is by far my favourite tenet I preach to people.

Are the Japanese the Healthiest People in the World?

According to the WHO stats, the Japanese are some of the longest living people in the world. But a long life doesn’t necessarily mean a healthy one. Personally, we would rather add life to our years than years to our life, so we like to study healthy people and copy what they do. Here’s what we found when we lived in and visited Japan and analysed their diet and lifestyle…
