Karen Ranzi's new book, "Creating Healthy Children Through Attachment Parenting and Raw Foods," is one of those books that seems to take an eternity to finish -- not because it is not interesting, but because it is so full of information.

I was not sure what to expect when I first started the book. I am a firm believer in Attachment Parenting, but I could never be called a raw food enthusiast. I lean towards a vegetarian (often vegan), organic, all natural diet, but it is generally cooked and I had no desire to change that.

That said, I found the book fascinating, informative and incredibly well researched, and have already made small changes in my food choices and my family's. I do not intend to switch to a completely raw food diet, but Ranzi makes it clear that I don't have to in order to still see some benefits of raw foods.

Subjects included in the nearly 500-page book include: The health of the parents before conception, home birth, circumcision, diet during pregnancy, the B12 question, breastfeeding, the importance of skin-to-skin contact, co-sleeping, feeding baby uncooked foods, teaching children how to eat, personal care products for children, children's exercise and ventilation, transitioning children to raw foods, kid-tested recipes, Essential Fatty Acids, vitamins and minerals, eliminating causes of illnesses, water needs, genetic engineering, homeschooling, nonviolent communication with children, vaccinations, dental health, vision health, the importance of the sun, questions from parents, stories of raw families and their journeys and more.

When I first began reading, I have to admit to feeling rather overwhelmed and depressed.

Teh book is a wonderful reference tool if you are thinking about having a baby and what to do to get your body in a place it should be to conceive in a healthy environment. I was looking for more of a after you had children and want to get them on a healthy way of life through raw foods. Mayube with some transitional recipes. So the book hasn't fit me needs but would be great for someone pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and then just given birth.

REVIEW OF:
Creating Healthy Children
Through Attachment Parenting and Raw Foods
By: Karen Ranzi

Contact: Website: [...]
[...]

In the Judeo-Christian Bible, Proverbs 22:6 says "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." It is great to see that someone takes this seriously.

Karen Ranzi, an author, speaker and consultant, has taken raw to a whole new level in her book "Creating Healthy Children." The majority of my reviews are all about the "me." In other words, it is food that "I" eat; it is products that "I" use and it is a recipe that "I" will prepare. Karen's book takes raw and health to a new level. Her book is all about preparing us to prepare the next generation. Having seen what the Standard American Diet (S.A.D) did to one of her parents, and knowing the difference that changing to a raw diet lifestyle did for her, she decided to share with her readers the advantages to a raw and healthy diet for our children. From the womb through adolescence, her book takes us through the necessary steps to a healthy childhood. Allow me a moment to share with you, my reader, why I think everyone needs this book in his or her library.

Even before opening the cover, I was impressed by the quality and obvious professionalism that went into publishing this book. The cover, each of the 496 pages and the photographs appear to be well thought out and prepared with the reader in mind. The easy to follow index and the helpful appendices lead me directly to areas of the book that I needed to refer back to when I had questions.

This book is amazing. It contains all the questions that I have wanted answers to since I started eating raw following the 80/10/10 diet. It contains information on a wide range of topics that cover raising healthy children, enough to wet your appetite to read much more about them, and she includes other sources of information so you know where to look for further information. This book has completely changed my view of raising children, and I'm so glad I read this book before having children as I know think I'll enjoy them so much more, and look on my future children as such a blessing and not something that gets in the way of my life. It was such an informative read I think I'll read it again from the start and make notes. This book is great for everyone if people trully want to know how they can help their children to be healthy they can find all the answers here.

I have many raw food books in my home library; however, very few of them stand out like this book! It is an incredible symphony of information on B12, fats, pregnancy, raw child development, etc. and real stories from real raw families. Actually, I didn't know there were so many raw families out there until I read this book!
