I am only a few chapters into the book, but Dr. Fuhrman is rearranging the molecules in my brain! I know that breastmilk is better than formula; I know that home-made baby food is better than jarred; but I didn't know just how costly my diet is to my baby! Molecules of everything I eat get passed to Ella through my breastmilk; everything she sees me eat and wants a taste of gets passed more directly. If she sees me eating, she wants to try! Food issues run through her genetic paternity and maternity; Dr. Fuhrman's direct-approach to eating might be able to save her (and the rest of us). He basically says that so-called "kid's food" is all garbage and that kids are sicker when they eat it. He has four children who would take vegetables for snack and wonder why the other parents don't love their children enough to feed them healthy. A funny aside, my best friend is a veternarian who is constantly reminding clients not to give "people-food" to their dogs; these people claim to love their dogs, but they let them become obese and unhealthy. Don't mistake laziness for love! There are so many ways to love your kids without giving in to brightly-colored packaging and sugar! Kids do not understand nutrition but we can! I have to attend to my whiney baby now...ttys!
