Food additives, trans-fats, pesticides, flavour enhancers, artificial colourings, preservatives, e-numbers… If these are words that freak you out, even just a little, then you really want to read the free eBook produced by Healthy Child Healthy World.
Easy Steps to Eating Healthy & Safe Foods provides a roadmap to cleaning up your dinner plate, starting with the basics and working up to extreme food awareness and protection of your family.
Why is this such a big issue? So much of the food we eat today comes gift-wrapped in toxic chemicals, and most of them you can’t see, taste or smell. These are substances that our bodies have never had to cope with before and the results are “lifestyle diseases” like diabetes, heart disease and obesity; early-puberty and hormonal problems, not to mention the damage done to the environment along the way.
As parents, it is our job to protect our children from danger – and I don’t think it’s going too far to say that a lot of mainstream food is downright dangerous.
Anyway, don’t take my word for it, download the book or read it online here and start making changes to improve the health of your entire family.
“You are what you eat, right? But, you might not even know what you’re eating these days. Pesticide
residues, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), chemicals from food packaging – toxics have become unwelcome guests at the family dinner table, hiding in the foods we consume on an everyday basis. We’re going to help you kick them to the curb.”
