Hi PH! It's been a while. This isn't in the nutrition realm, but it does deal with the primal relationship between a mother and child, plus, you guys are great and I'd love your opinion.Here's the skinny: My best friends in this world are a young... (more)
I have 6 year old boy/girl twins. I started them on a Paleo diet plan (not DIET though, more "nutritional," I hope) last week. I made TONS of yummy snacks from the PaleoParents' ebook and How to Eat Like a Dinosaur. I was thrilled that they... (more)
I think your plan is good. Give them more fruits and starches and they will come out of ketosis.
I have a bit of a situation. My child goes to a daycare where they serve strictly SAD meals. The daycare staff has been extremely helpful about feeding him the stuff I pack, but they prefer that I pack shelf stable/refrigerated snacks to leave... (more)
I have a 17 month old daughter who goes to daycare 2 days a week. I developed Crohn's disease about 4 years ago, and after years of being in constant flares, lots of medication and following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (basically GAPS and... (more)
you are not going to win them all. You just have to win enough. Be firm and consistent at home. I got enough out of it that my daughter ( going to college in 2 years) will eat eggs, parmesan, broth, and some vegetables every day.
For my toddler, I am considering purchasing a multivitamin: http://www.vitacost.com/rainbow-light-kids-one-multistars-fruit-punch-90-chewable-tablets I'm undecided, with the following arguments on each side: Pro-vitamin: As a toddler,... (more)
I am trying to find a fish oil supplement for my 6 year old. We try to eat oily fish as much as possible and I have been trying to get better sources for our meat to increase his omega 3 intake. However, I would like to have a good quality... (more)
We're planning a birthday party for one of our kids. Do you have any easy-to-prep ideas for a lunch we'll be serving at a park to 30ish kids and adults. Since we'll be at the park and I don't want to mess with a grill I'd rather only serve things... (more)
I would like to start transitioning my 8 month old to a paleo diet. Unfortunately, I stopped breastfeeding at 4 months so she is on formula, which I will probably continue until she is 10/11 months. Does anyone have experience with giving babies... (more)
Hi there. I have 4 kiddos, (3, 6, 9, and 11).. Does anyone have any advice for how to ease them into a paleo lifestyle without giving them "carb-flu" symptoms? The 9 year old is an athlete who works out 14 hours/week. ( Gymnast). I don't want to... (more)
I am trying to get my family more in tune with nature. I want to do things the "right way". My 7 month old appears to have severe reactions to gluten and I cannot tolerate dairy. I took 2 of my 3 kids to a more "natural" doctor (still has his... (more)
I'm feeling a bit uninspired for Easter meals this year. What are you having? I'd love to hear some main dishes as well as some desserts if you're willing to share....any other ideas are great too. Post recipes if you have them! Thanks!... (more)
Photos of my 4-year-old son here. My aunt is diagnosed with Celiac, I am unofficially self-diagnosed with Celiac (after a year of eating self-experimentation with Paleo eating), and the pictures are of my son who is about to go in for his 4-year... (more)
So my kids aren't 100% Paleo all the time, but they're pretty close. I pack lunches for my first grade son on a daily basis and usually pack him things like jerky, good quality salami, ham roll ups, etc. For breakfast the kids usually have... (more)
Hey, I'm a 14 year old girl, 5.3" and 150 pounds. I'm not massively overweight, but I could lose a few pounds (from the dreaded belly area) When I was 13, I could eat whatever I liked and not gain a thing. I wasn't skinny, but I really wish I had... (more)
Please please please don't worry about weight loss. You're too young and still growing. That said, you can still clean up your diet and grow into your "extra" weight. You're an athlete, so you're going to eat more carbs than most people. Have... (more)
Get the liquid kind and hide it in ....anything. Smoothies, poured on veggies, poured over a burger, slip it in their juice. It's pretty easy.
OK, so my son is Gluten and Diary intolerant, so we have gone Paleo completely. My hubby hates me right now and is having a harder time than the kids. But my kids mostly my 7 year old boy is SUPER FUSSY! He is scared to try anything, his... (more)
Loren Cordain recommends excluding dairy from kids diets, even though (as he states) there are growth hormones in milk that make them taller and larger than they otherwise would be. Since there are many positive correlates with height in our... (more)
My three year old is experiencing recurring sinus infections. They often turn into conjunctivisis (eye infection) and have to be treated with antibiotics. (no lectures on antibiotics please, you don't mess around with eye infections). The... (more)
Hi Paleo People! just wondering if anyone grew up as a vegetarian and if they are facing any symptoms today becasue of it?? ...or if anyone knows of any reasearch/studies that examines the 'vegetarian-raised' person's health (physical and... (more)
i have a few friends who are having tons of issues with their childrens behavior and, being the paleo devotee that i am, i can recognize that the gluteny pizza, cereal bars, chips, cupcakes and other unidentifiable food-like substances that their... (more)
I am always reluctant to give out unsolicited advice, it has rarely done me good...however, I am a parent of a child with ADHD, and so I totally relate to the desire to help someone out who is struggling in their family in a way that seems so... (more)
I recently learned about the Paleo way of life and although its been tough to explain and I've faltered a few times, I'm loving it. Problem is that I can't get my wife on board. I've sent her the literature online, explained the benefits, etc.... (more)
Do it by yourself. Lead by example. Either she'll see the changes in you and want to jump on board, or she won't. When it comes down to it, you really can't make her do anything, but you can be a prime example of how awesome it is.
My son just turned 2 and has been paleo almost a year. We eat mostly grass-fed meat, local pastured pork and poultry, and vegetables. I bought some fish oil and pop a few pills whenever I eat pork or poultry, to balance out the omega-6s. My son... (more)
We're going on a road trip after Christmas. There are lots of travel related threads here in which the traveler is advised to consider intermittent fasting, or essentially try getting by on appetite-sating jerky or coconut manna. Well, those... (more)
