It resonates with what I believe about proper nutrition and helped to guide me as I started to feed my daughter solid foods.
Mrod
After years of feeding ourselves healthfully and label reading, this book jives very well with us and I consider it our new most trusted resource on child nutrition.
KNile
Furthermore, I've read Dr. Sear's advice regarding nutrition in "The Baby Book", and the majority of it conflicts with the advice in this book.

I discovered traditional/real food diets when my oldest daughter was about 14 months old. Before my discovery we were on what modern nutritionists would consider an excellent diet, gluten free, vegetable oils, organic fruits and veggies etc. Little did I know that this diet was seriously lacking in vital nutrients for me and my family. I have Celiacs Disease with a wide range of lingering symptoms and my daughter was off the charts small with cradle cap. Upon changing our diet to nutrient dense foods from grass fed animals, raw milk, fermented foods and drinks, coconut oils and grass fed butter our health flourished! I was delighted to see that this book was now available since my 5 month old son will be eating soon, I just wish it had been around back when my daughter was a baby.

The book it self is very easy to read and understand, with well laid out pages including graphs and guides. Quick reference guides for month to month guidelines of acceptable foods per age. It separates common foods into categories from CRAP foods, OKAY foods, PURE foods and POWER foods. Even includes recipes to help those who are new to cooking with real food. It also contains guidelines on how mommy should eat while pregnant and nursing.

Overall I am so happy that this book was written and I have a heart felt wish that all caregivers of children big and small should read this book. In an age of rampant chronic childhood illnesses our current methods of nourishing our children should be seriously reconsidered and the wisdom of our ancestors should once again be applied.

I am so pleased with this book, which says alot because Ican be pretty picky when it comes to nutrition and my family's health. I am a mother of three including a two month old, and also proud member of the WAPF, and I try to feed my family along those guidelines as much as possible. Nourishing Traditions is sort of like my kitchen bible, and I have even shelled out precious money to see Sally at a regional conference. I consider myself passionate about traditional nutrition, dedicated to my family's health, and I love to share and promote these ideas. That being said, I have not been able to share NT with too many people because my friends who don't have it already might find it less than user friendly. I especially have been wanting something geared towards feeding babies or pregnancy, because that is not only a crucial time, it is also a time when moms and dads are naturally more focused on nutrition.
This book fits the bill as a book I am eager to share with others, yet I also learned a lot myself. It is easy to read, yet still packed with helpful information.
This book offers so much that Nourishing Traditions just doesn't. It is laid out in an easy to read format, most of the information is broken down into digestible bites with side bars and snippets interspersed for interesting reading. I read it cider to cover in a few sittings over two days. Also the authors take care to realize some of their ideas may be completely foreign to most people: raw milk, soft cooked eggs, organ meats. Not the typical rice flakes and strained peas that comes to some people's minds when they think of feeding baby.

I really enjoyed reading this book, as a grandmother, I am glad my grandikids will benefit from this thoughtful, creative well researched information. I wish I had known the detrimental effects of sugar and the benefits of good fats when my children were small. But at any age this book can have an impact on the food choices you make, for you and your family.

Format: Paperback
This badly needed book provides a blueprint for feeding your baby based squarely in the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Cod liver oil, liver and other organ meats, raw dairy, pastured animal fats and butter, bone broths, free-range eggs, lacto-fermented condiments and beverages and unrefined salt - all figure large in these pages. The authors stress the need for animal fats for neurological development, and warn against popular empty food for babies like juice and cereals. There are chapters devoted to our raw milk baby formula and to nutrient-dense diets for pregnant mothers.

In addition to all this wonderful information, the authors have amassed an interesting collection of antique ads for canned baby food - not because they recommend canned baby food but because these ads all tout the benefits of animal foods like meat and liver for growing babies. Nowadays you can hardly find baby food meat in jars - it is all just vegetables and water. How would you feel if you were just fed vegetables and water? No wonder our babies are cranky and have trouble sleeping through the night!

The authors have worked hard to get all the details in line with the principles of traditional diets; this book is highly recommended for anyone with a baby, or planning to have a baby. A big Thumbs UP. (Review by Sally Fallon Morell)"

This book has completely changed my thinking on how to feed our baby. I knew babies and toddlers needed a high fat diet, but I didn't realize the types of foods that should be included (and avoided). I also assumed they needed rice cereal, but what nutritional value is there in rice? This book is full of enlightening facts, and the scientific and historical explanations are very helpful in validating the concepts.
