Nourishing your child nutritionally
Nourishing your child begins from the time of birth. Nourishing means mother’s milk until the child is on solids, then moving to the best quality organic foods, fresh living foods that are grown in the earth (or on the earth).
Time and time again we notice that where there is a gathering of groups, the children are given one type of food and the adults another type of food. Take sausages for instance, the children are often given those ‘plastic style’ supermarket sausages, whilst the adults eat the butcher superior tasty quality sausages.
And in restaurants we regularly observe that children’s menus consist of Nuggets & Chips, Sausages & chips, Ice Cream and chocolate and rarely do you see any fresh lettuce, tomato, fruit etc.
It is vital in the early years for children to develop a healthy body and when you give children the best quality organic fruits and vegetables, their bodies absorb the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals to develop and sustain their body and mind.
Sweets, biscuits, packaged foods and chemically laced fruits and vegetables, will continually break down your child’s immune system, allowing for illness and diseases to occur. Next time you are in a group of people, ensure that the best sausages, and the finest of foods, nourish your children first.
Children do eat healthy foods if you give them healthy foods. It comes from you.
