Welcome back to the Talk Story portion of our visit with André Leu, right here in Hawaii, speaking about Poisoning Our Children. If you haven't yet listened to André's main presentation, you can catch that right here. Most of the last half of this session had to be removed due to inaccuracies, erroneous claims and intentionally damaging statements made by a few attendees in an attempt to discredit our local producers and deflect from the subject at hand. Sadly, such trolling by people with no concern for or experience with human health has become commonplace at such events. This segment had to be removed so as not to spread false information about our producers.

Andre Leu is the Author of Poisoning our Children and the Myths of Safe Pesticides. He is International Director of Regeneration International, an organization that promotes food, farming and land use systems that regenerate and stabilise climate systems, the health of the planet and people, communities, culture and local economies, democracy and peace.

He was the President of IFOAM – Organics International, the world change agent and umbrella body for the organic sector. IFOAM – Organics International has around 850 member organisations in 127 countries.

New Year's Resolution for Healthier Kids

New Year's Resolution for Healthier Kids

So many parents are looking for easier ways to feed their kids. Time, budget and convenience are HUGE excuses used for feeding their children snacks and quasi-meals loaded with artificial ingredients, sugars (yes, even juices) and other items missing vital nutrients. My friend, Valérie Delahaye...

Day 29 - How Should I Feed My Kids?

One of the biggest myths going around is that children prefer different foods from adults. This belief has gotten us into hot water with allergies and autism rapidly rising across the industrialized world. Go to any La Leche League or Holistic Moms meeting and you’ll witness many patterns across children who suffer from such afflictions. What you are eating during the Challenge is in fact perfect for feeding your children as well. Don’t be surprised if you find their overall health, immunity and behavior to change for the better while eating along with you. Check out details in the video.

If your kids started out like most kids in the West, they have a penchant for sweet not-foods. Don’t dispair! Kids are often much easier than adults to switch over to a new way of eating — especially if they know it’s good for them. Here’s what you do:

1. Get them in the kitchen. Kids love science and to see how things are made. Have them chop, slice and mix according to age and capability. This will pay off when they are older and need to fend for themselves.

2. Stop focusing on reducing fat and calories. Kids need nutrients to grow and maintain their mental and physical health. Cook for flavor and nutrition first. The rest comes naturally.

3. Make real food fun. Just because you’re serving leg of lamb doesn’t mean that dinner can’t be more fun than a pizza (which coincidentally could be made healthy very easily). Here’s an idea. Have an Arabian nights party and serve sides of hummus, cucumber salad and pita bread. Then watch a cool kids movie like Aladdin. Believe me. It works!

Eating Disorders in Children

Eating Disorders in Children

Eating Disorders in Children

Eating disorders in children are on the rise. Is this any surprise? With more and more parents switching to unhealthy extreme diets such as vegan, macrobiotic, low fat and raw food, what hope do our children have to develop a normal relationship with real food?

Since people first began to understand the prevalence of these disorders in the 1980s, it was thought that they were on the decline. But today, anorexia and bulimia are on the rise in many groups including those who experienced very little incidence in the past, namely minorities, males and pre-teens.

Children today are pressured by their parents not to exhibit the normal chubby growth pattern their bodies are designed to take on. Mistaking it for obesity, parents put them on restrictive diets which inevitably end up consisting mainly of high sugar, processed, nutrient poor foods — or at least foods from which the nutrients are poorly absorbed as is common in macrobiotic and raw food diets.

It is a shame that eating disorders aside, many of these children will not outlive their parents. Many will be left infertile and with psychological problems.

No matter how you look at it, the only way to tackle the problem of childhood obesity as well as eating disorders in children is to reintroduce wholesome, real foods such as whole raw dairy, meat and eggs into our homes again. A few minutes in the kitchen each day will teach our children to respect food and the beautiful body it creates for them.

Modern Eating Disorders: Eating Disorders in Children

Modern Eating Disorders

Modern Eating Disorders

Growing up in the 80’s, anorexia and bulimia were two eating disorders that were coming to light. Girls of my age (primarily Caucasian) were made aware of the warning signs and were taught to be proud of our bodies. Dieting for girls in their early teens was discouraged. While many girls still succumbed to the desire to be ridiculously thin, the campaign against dieting saved many girls from self-destruction.

For a while, it seemed that anorexia and bulimia were on the decline. Today, however, eating disorders are on the rise once again. But this time it’s worse. The campaign against childhood obesity and constant dieting amongst many adults has parents spreading paranoia to their children. The result? Pre-teens, males and minorities are now the newest groups who have  begun to starve themselves on the quest for the perfect body.

It is a shame that parents are not better educated about the nutritional needs of their children. Infants and small children should be chubby and sturdy respectively. This extra fat ensures adequate bone growth not only in length, but in integrity. This fat also serves as insulation for the body and internal organs. Unfortunately, parents confuse this normal type of fat for obesity.

The worst part is how parents are teaching their children to avoid obesity. Instead of steering them towards nourishing foods of our ancestors such as meat, butter and eggs, they are filling children with non-nutritive foods such as processed fruit juices and low-fat meals or extreme diets such as vegan and macrobiotic. This way of eating robs children of the very nutrients they require to grow healthy and strong with broad faces and free of psychological disorders.

As parents, I believe it is our place to honor our children first by giving them the appropriate tools (food) to thrive and second to accept them for who they are. Teaching our children to fear their bodies and fear food will only make their lives more difficult as they grow up. Embracing the right eating habits prior to conception is the best way to ensure that they develop into happy, healthy adults.
