I consider Baby Greens a must-read for all, especially live-food, parents."

Baby Greens is a delightful and informative book on adding raw foods into the diet of children. In the introduction, author Michaela Lynn describes her search for answers about raw foods first for herself and later for babies and kids. She mentions her frustration at not finding a book on those topics. She finally comes to realize that she is supposed to write that book! Lynn makes it clear that Baby Greens is not meant to promote a rigid diet but rather to help families of all dietary persuasions add more living foods to their repertoire.

Part one of Baby Greens is a collection of essays on health and bioenergetic nutrition written by Michael Chrisemer, N.C. Chrisemer's essays are readable and educational. He covers a variety of topics ranging from enzymes, toxins, sea vegetables, vitamins, and water to breastfeeding. Each essay is short and to the point. They are packed with information that will inspire the reader to explore each topic more in-depth. I was fascinated to learn about the homeopathic qualities of sea vegetables. I was likewise pleased to read that Chrisemer makes correlations between breastfeeding behavior and later eating habits. His bits of wisdom make perfect sense to me. In his essay "Putting it All Together," Chrisemer discusses children and their need for autonomy. He shares an anecdote about a pudding pie he craved after seeing a TV commercial. Instead of denying him the experience of the pie, his mother bought it for him. He found the pie to be much different from his expectations and he never asked for another. Had his mother denied him that experience, he might have missed out on an important opportunity for growth.

Part two of Baby Greens is all about food recipes and activities. This is where the book really shines.

Micky (Michaela Lynn) was running a vegan daycare in the small town where I live, and all the kids loved her. Even kids who aren't vegetarian and whose parents tought they didn't like vegetables enjoyed the food and starting asking for raw veggie snacks! I couldn't say enough good about Micke and her book. A must for any parent!

I was very sceptical of ordering this book as it had mixed reviews.
I owe many raw food books and have been using them for 3 years now. That said, I really enjoyed this one!
My husband and I are 80%+ raw and its a bit more challenging with our 4 year old. With this book- the great recipies I try- she loves and its easier to transition her to being mostly on living foods!
YES I do recommend it!

I really appreciated this book for its non-paranoid view towards food for children.It seems like all the books suggest processed fortified rice cereal for first foods to avoid "allergies"??? Isn't the best way to avoid allerigies to fortify the body with living healthy foods? My son will be starting solids next month or so and I bought this book in attempt to learn WHY every other baby food book on the market cooks the hell out of everything, including foods like berries, before giving it to your infant? It is a straight forward book with a very holistic approach to feeding your child.

I love this book I wish there were more like it. It has some amazing information on nutrition for everyone and some yummy raw food recipes for baby, toddlers and adults. I wish there were more recipes in it though. But I love this book and have learned a lot from it. My favorite part is the page that tells when to start baby on which raw foods.

I was frustrated with most of the books out there on how to make baby food and food for toddlers. When I read "Baby Greens" I found it to be informative in reasons to use raw foods for digestion and health. She had a lot of supported research which I found helpful. Additonally, the recipes were well received by my infant son, who had been on mainly breast milk since birth. Since beginning solid foods I have found he does not have a "sweet tooth" that my pediatrician was concerned about with a fruit heavy beginning to solid foods. He does like his fruit. He also likes a wide variety of vegetables, cheese, nuts, grains, lentils, pulses and meat. Interestingly, he is not a fan of heavily processed foods. Given the climate of food security these days I think this is a good thing! I would definltely recommend this book to anyone, and have to all of my newly pregnant friends!

I enjoyed this book, even though I was already familiar with much of the information. It is a wonderful resource for quick statistics and creative recipes. Another book that one might want to read before or after this one to help them on their path to raw or vegan eating is Eat to Live. Once you understand the science of health and hunger, you begin to realize that it is very natural to eat raw and vegan. In fact, my own children from the very beginning of their solid food journeys have always prefered fresh, clean, raw foods with little exception. Even when their corrupted parents decide to have a "treat" they often decide they don't like it after a couple of bites. Anyway, I can't compete with some of the other, more thorough reviews of this book right now, but believe them that it is a very enjoyable and educational read!
