A part of paleo is limited-no dairy..so im guessing thats where that came from. Is breastmilk dairy? :what:
He obviously gets his teeth bleached white and fake tan, what is with that? Where people are SO full on about only healthy, organic, sprouted foods, but then put shed loads of chemicals into their bodies in other ways?? I don't get it at all
My mum is very wishy washy and a major trend follower. Crystal healing, raiki, homeopathy, naturopathy, health foods, super foods, clean eating, organic ect. Which I guess are all fine if you understand them but not if your like her and just go on word of mouth and follow someones advice oblivious to real information. We dont see her much for other reasons but its always made me laugh that she still cleans her house with bleach, dyes her hair with box dyes and smokes pot (which is hardly natural anymore.) Whats the point lol?
Going against the grain here (haha, "grain")....
The bone broth recipe for babies was co-developed by a nutritionist from what I've read, it wasn't just pete Evans who made it up. & if I couldn't breast feed, I'd seriously consider that as an option to feed my baby as an alternative to commercial formulas (note - don't flame me for that comment, I said I'd consider, I didn't say I'd do it for certain).
I don't subscribe to the full on paleo way (ie I eat peanuts & legumes, & a small amount of homemade pasta or homemade bread) but I do like a lot of the theory behind the paleo diet, for both me & my kids.
& I'd rather feed myself & my kids real food than something out of a packet filled with sugar, salt, preservatives, additives....
Ultimately, if you don't agree with it, then don't feed it to your kids.!
My kids hardly ever have processed food, I make most things from scratch. This is just another fad, next year, we'll be talking about some other diet.
If you want to eat paelo that is fine, but why make your kids eat it if it goes against medical advice? I was a vegetarian for 10 years, that doesn't mean I'd force my kids to be. I am also gluten free for medical reasons, same thing applies.
All the keyboard warriors are out in full force over this, only because he's a celebrity in our face on tv etc. I'm sure there are 100s of books out there advising parents to do all sorts of controversial things, & they don't get the press pete Evans does.
What about people like Tizzie hall who wrote a book advising parents to overheat their babies with dangerous layers of blankets in order to get them to sleep - equally as controversial, but far less air time, because only parents with young kids have heard of her.
There will always be "someone" who writes "something" controversial - and as parents we can read it and chose to agree, disagree, or be indifferent.
