Your Child’s Health Starts in the Gut

If your young child did not know how to swim and did not want to put on a life vest because it was “uncomfortable”, would you say, “Sure honey, I know that life vest makes you itchy, go ahead and get in the water without it this time.”?  Considering removing grain products from our children’s diets may be “uncomfortable” for us, but we owe it to our children to educate ourselves on the potential damage caused by grains and their link to so many common health problems.

I want to pass along THIS GREAT POST by Consuelo Werner, a guest contributor to Robb Wolf’s blog.  A mother of three, she presents some good information on gut flora and its connection to our brain function.  There are many good books and articles relating to the “how to’s” of getting the grains out of your home, including blogs like Everyday Paleo and Growing Up Paleo.

As crazy as it sounds, it is possible for your children (and you) to live without Pop Tarts, Goldfish, Cheetos, donuts, cereal and bread. I’ve been in your shoes.  It can be done, and my bet is it won’t be as hard as you think it will be.
