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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›
Karen Ranzi's book can help many families create HEALTHY CHILDREN: not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. Here are a few enticing excerpts from the book, which is full of supporting research and recommendations:
"What a pregnant woman consumes while growing a baby can lay down the health and genetic code for that new human being, predisposing that person to ailments such as heart disease in later life. The health of our children is of great concern today as we are exposed to an ever more toxic environment.
We don't always have control over much that goes on in our physical world.Read more ›

Lousy book. Sorry. There was nothing in this book that I found useful or informative. If you have any basic knowledge of toxins or nutrition this book will be a waste of time.Published on June 8, 2013 by A. Dunham
