    Yes, Kellogg's and Nestle have their lobbyists in government like most big companies do. This is more of a problem in the States where they have more influence on the FDA. Formula has to meet strict guidelines to be sold in Australian so why wouldn't you trust it over something that actual experts (because someone on his FB page tried to say Pete was an expert lol) are saying is nutritionally imbalanced.

    I feel so torn. I do see merit in the paleo diet and do cook a lot of paleo recipes myself and my family, including those from Pete Evans. However, so many of his supporters are anti-vax, anti-formula, big pharma skeptic, tin hat wearers which makes me think maybe he is totally cray cray.

    I think you can be healthy and paleoish in a positive way, but he, and many of his supporters are taking it way too far. I just saw on his facebook page that he is promoting mercola's new book. I would never take health advice from a mercola follower.

    I'm confused. Isn't paleo about getting back to our roots & eating unprocessed, natural foods like the cavemen?
    So a recipe for baby formula is utterly ridiculous. Guess what cavemen fed their babies? Breastmilk! If they couldn't BF for some reason another woman in their family would BF the baby! The babies would probably have been BF for a number of years to supplement food intake.
    Commercial formula or breastmilk are the only suitable foods for a young baby.
    Babies will die if this sort of nonsense gets published.

    He is not someone anyone should get health advice from.

    I saw one woman asking for him to do some pescetarian and vegetarian paleo recipes. I think she will sorely disappointed when she realises that vegetarianism doesn't mix with being paleo. A huge amount of a vegetarians nutrients come from legumes, beans and grains which are advised against in a paleo diet.

    It actually mixes fairly well. You will find the paleo diet has become quite popular amongst the vegan/vegetarian community just as it has in the main******. A lot of high carb/low fat vegans, whether they be raw, raw til 4, starch based followers, etc tend not to consume legumes and grains as well.

    There are heaps of good Paleo vegetarian recipes but yes as a whole diet no you would have to eat a lot of eggs to get your recommended protein intake

    I make lots of pete evans recipes and would look at the book for what it is - a recipe book - if people take it as a way of life well there are plenty of books I'm sure that are also controversial ( toddler vegan and vegetarian cook books for example) and I would hope parents would do more research than just read this cook book ( pete has gone a bit Paleo cray cray but some parts of the Paleo diet are really good for all ages)

    I think the book as been over sensationalised as a marketing ploy, I have seen Charlotte Carrs blog saying she makes bone broth as a supplement to solids after 6 months ( which is very healthy for babies) and is very pro breastfeeding so I think they just caused the controversy to get us to talk about it - which we are!

    Another trendsetter has lost the plot.
