Karen Ranzi's new book, "Creating Healthy Children Through Attachment Parenting and Raw Foods," is one of those books that seems to take an eternity to finish -- not because it is not interesting, but because it is so full of information.

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. Ranzi lists so many health risks that adopting her lifestyle may seem impossible to some (and this is coming from someone who already makes a concerted effort to live a healthy lifestyle). From the chlorine in your shower water to the toxic molds in peanut butter, it can seem that nothing is safe.

By the time I finished the book, however, I had put those elements in perspective. I now feel more educated and empowered, and see that information as simply knowledge and perspectives to use as I see fit.

As parents, we tend to accumulate vast amounts of information on our journeys. We research, we ask questions, we learn from our own mistakes and we eventually emerge with so much wisdom to pass on. With this book, I feel that Karen Ranzi has gathered all the knowledge of her own parenting and health journeys in one place for those beginning their own.

The book is incredibly well researched and Ranzi quotes her sources extensively. In the chapter about B12, for instance, she tells all perspectives and lists so many studies that I felt as if I could pass a test by the time I finished it. The chapter about circumcision is twelve pages long and includes a personal story of a mother who became an anti-circumcision activist and two full pages of books, websites, videos, organizations and other resources on the subject.

Karen Ranzi shares her knowledge and beliefs without concern for whether people see her as a radical or disagree. The book is not watered down in an attempt to please every reader or avoid ruffling feathers. Ranzi quite simply shares what she believes is best for children, from breastfeeding to avoiding vaccination to choosing organic foods, and why.

Ranzi also talks about common pitfalls of raw food diets, such as relying too heavily on dried fruits (which harm the teeth) and nuts (which are high in fat and not necessary in large quantities).

Since I began reading this book, my twelve year-old daughter decided to begin eating raw. In the past, I might have worried about her protein intake, vitamin needs and other issues. Armed with Creating Healthy Children, I feel completely comfortable with her decision and have been able to help her choose good foods and prepare simple recipes (Ranzi's recipes do tend to be very simple indeed since she advocates consuming whole fresh foods most of the time).

I highly recommend this book and plan to keep it in my personal collection. I am still not ready to switch to an all-raw diet, but I have been serving more salads, smoothies and fresh fruits for snacks and meals. Who knows what the future may hold.

Teh book is a wonderful reference tool if you are thinking about having a baby and what to do to get your body in a place it should be to conceive in a healthy environment. I was looking for more of a after you had children and want to get them on a healthy way of life through raw foods. Mayube with some transitional recipes. So the book hasn't fit me needs but would be great for someone pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and then just given birth.

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.

Unlike many authors who I read and review, Karen does not seem to be afraid to quote her sources, and whenever medical jargon might be confusing to the reader, she is quick to offer an explanation. While many "raw" and "health" books state opinion after opinion, this book states the facts necessary to back up any claims she has made. The appendices give websites, periodicals and other references for further information. But, enough about that, let's get on with the book's contents.

I was inspired when I first opened the book and discovered that the forewords were written by an M.D. and a Ph.D. This always adds credibility to a book in a field where everyone seems to want to write about something, and they are all "experts." Then, as I began to read "My Story," a chapter about Karen's life, I realized that this was not just a happy-go-lucky, feel-good book. I understand that Karen was going to stick with the facts, whether they were "warm and fuzzy" or "hard and cruel." One sentence made me laugh, while the next made me want to cry. Her attention to detail and information is phenomenal, which made the reading more interesting.

I was interested in her approach early in the book with regards to the parents. I expected the book to be all about "healthy children," and did not even consider that "healthy children" need to come from "healthy parents." This was a pleasant realization, and the book points out that healthy children begin before conception. Then, she touts the benefits of home childbirth in the next chapter, and reminds the reader that medical intervention is only one danger of a hospital birth.

Karen seems very concerned about the amount of fats and proteins in the diet of pregnant women, and rightfully so. The incidence of early puberty in girls, obesity and other health issues are addressed with accuracy and fact-filled information. While promoting a reduction of fat in the diet, the author points out that many foods are rich in protein, yet S.A.D. does not push these as high-protein foods. The amount of information to the public is deceptive about where these proteins should come from, and how much protein our bodies actually need.

In another part of the book, a whole chapter is dedicated to the myth that vegans and children of vegans are going to experience medical problems because of a lack of B12 in their bodies. The author offers options for increasing B12, as well as medical information on whether this is even necessary. But, as a true informer, Karen confronts both sides of the issue and how it affects her readers. This chapter then moves into the next section involving breast-feeding and attachment parenting.

It makes sense that mothers should breastfeed their infants. Karen references many sources which show how advantageous breastfeeding is since the infant is readily able to digest the mother's milk. It is all very natural and this common sense approach seems best. Although I found the lead-in to attachment parenting to be informative and interesting, I do not feel qualified to review this aspect of the book. Skin-to-skin contact between the mother and the infant seems important to me, but as a man, I have to yield to a woman's expertise in this area.

The information on feeding a baby uncooked food and teaching a child how to eat was for me, the most important part of the book. Imagine where we would all be today if our mothers had started us eating correctly from the womb. Obesity, as well as many diseases would be a thing of the past. However, that is not the world in which we live, and the next chapter on "Transitioning Older Children to Raw Foods" addresses that need in today's society. With the prevalence of fast food restaurants, junk food in the grocery stores, snack foods being served and sold in schools, it is no wonder that our children are in terrible shape both physically and emotionally. If a million families would follow the advice set-forth in this book, two to three million children could be saved from an early death, as well as billions of dollars saved in future medical bills, much of which are going to have to be paid by a strapped government system. The United States Government should consider buying one of these books for every American home as part of the stimulus package. Stimulate healthy kids to save the government money. What a concept!!

Much of the remainder of the book is dedicated to recipes for children (ok, adults, too - I have already used some and they are great) along with testimonials from raw families and how it has affected their lives. The stories all brought smiles to my face when I read how a raw lifestyle changed their lives. Having been through the transformation myself, I know what a life changing and life saving experience it can be.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing collection of information 22 juin 2010

This book is amazing. It contains all the questions that I have wanted answers to since I started eating raw following the 80/10/10 diet. It contains information on a wide range of topics that cover raising healthy children, enough to wet your appetite to read much more about them, and she includes other sources of information so you know where to look for further information. This book has completely changed my view of raising children, and I'm so glad I read this book before having children as I know think I'll enjoy them so much more, and look on my future children as such a blessing and not something that gets in the way of my life. It was such an informative read I think I'll read it again from the start and make notes. This book is great for everyone if people trully want to know how they can help their children to be healthy they can find all the answers here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is one of the best Raw Food Books out there! 5 février 2011
Par Brandi Y Rollins - Publié sur
I have many raw food books in my home library; however, very few of them stand out like this book! It is an incredible symphony of information on B12, fats, pregnancy, raw child development, etc. and real stories from real raw families. Actually, I didn't know there were so many raw families out there until I read this book!
