We're a raw family lives (mostly) in the UK. We've started the raw-food (non-strict vegan) lifestyle more than 6 years ago. My 1st child (age 7 yrs) has been on high raw for 1 year and all raw for 5 years; my 2nd child (age 5 yrs) has been all raw since birth and still breastfed.
I've found my children prefer to have more fatty raw foods (about 30% like avocados,
seeds, nuts, coconuts) than me, especially in winter time. After sharing this
with Rozi (Doug Graham's wife) last week, I just realised children do instinct
crave for more fat. Even I generally feel better on lfrv, I wonder if nursing
mothers need more fat than 811 or lfrv.
And what do you think of this (well-known) raw lady's article on "raw
vegan children"? Are raw dairy, egg (animal by products) necessary? Are
supplements (the 100% natural and vegan ones) necessary? http://www.shazzie.com/life/articles/raw_vegan_children.shtml
Just to clarify that I say my children are all raw “non-strict vegan”, because we had tried organic raw goat cheese in the pass (3 days in 2008 Costa Rica, 6 days in 2009 UK)
Did Shazzie mean she’d met “hundred of (100%) raw children (from birth or/and for longer than 3, 4, 5 years)”?
I’m very interesting to get in touch with them.
So let’s start counting 100% raw children [never mind about vegan or beegan for now]… Boutenko’s (2), Doug & Rozi’s
(1), Storm & Jinjee’s (5), ,Stephane’s (1), Sonia Watt (2), Ka Sundance’s
(3), Karmyn’s (1), Kelly’s (1), Patrick’s (1), Anne (1), Jeff (1). Only few had
passed nursing stage though…
Praise all the raw parents out there as going against mainstream is very chanlleging. Good jobs!!
