#3 Give them carbs (the right ones)
Kids do well with carbohydrates (breast milk has plenty).
But swap the processed sugars and refined carbohydrates for more nutritious and evolutionarily appropriate options like fruit, honey, and raw milk.
And make them an animal-based ice cream!
#4 Don’t feed them vegetables
Despite what the mainstream suggests, vegetables are not the superfoods they are made out to be.
In fact, they most likely do more harm than good, because they contain plant defense chemicals that are known to be harmful for both kids and adults.
For example, oxalates, which are found in many plants including spinach can rob them of essential minerals…
And lectins which are found in many more plants including nightshades and legumes, can damage their gut and trigger the immune system.
And kids know what is up! They trust their instincts, and they know vegetables are BS!
Go here for more details on the problems with vegetables.
#5 Take off the bubblewrap
We all want to protect our children, but sometimes we can overprotect them and slow their progress as a result.
Allow them to take reasonable risks, and to explore their capabilities, so they can grow into strong, capable humans!
Nobody wants to end up in the hospital, but we do say let them climb the furniture, let them climb trees, hammer nails and swordfight with sticks!
#6 Less structure, more freedom
Kids are also growing up with more structure and scheduling than ever before.
Lessons, classes, playdates, and sports practice are all leaving less time for them to just be kids!
The overscheduled child can suffer from a loss of creativity, burnout, and increased stress.
So if your child’s schedule is looking like more like a CEO’s than a kindergarteners, then it might be time to reassess.
The solution is simple. More free play, less packed schedules!
