Should I feed my baby rice cereal? Organic “puffs?” Juice? What about Cheerios, cow’s milk, soy, and wheat? When can I introduce meats? Is raw milk safe for my child? What about food allergies? Iron supplements? Does organic matter??

Let’s face it: transitioning to solid foods is a time of exploration, conflicting information, trial-and-error, and just plain confusion. It’s time to go way beyond the conventional wisdom and learn what your baby really needs to be healthy and well, what she can digest at these early stages, and what she needs for proper growth, steady development, and a strong immune system. Angela Davis and Hannah Springer, Holistic Nutrition Coaches and co-founders of Wise Ways Cooking School, will cover the principles of child nutrition discovered by Weston A. Price in his study of healthy traditional communities, and will offer guidance on how to prepare your child for a balanced, varied traditional-foods diet, while preventing and addressing issues like food allergies, frequent infections, digestive problems, and pickiness. This workshop is a must for new parents, parents-to-be, and parents of toddlers. Register at: http://wisewayscookingschool.com/registration For more information: Hannah@WiseWaysCookingSchool.com.

    Thumbs up! (For the review!)
    Excellent and thorough review, thank you!! I’m only sorry I didn’t see this before I bought the book! smilies/sad.gif However, at least I didn’t waste the energy trying to read it yet though. I really appreciate how thorough you were, very in-depth. I really enjoyed her first book, and since I trusted her as an author, I picked up this second one without a thought. Guess I’ll know better for next time. Thanks again!!

  2. Lorette C. Luzajic says:

    I’m shocked and surprised that this foundation gave a thumbs down to Nina Planck, despite all the reasons you mentioned. You can bet that Nina’s cheerful assurances go a lot further to help “real” people transition to a healthier diet than detailed, confusing diatribes that even scientists can barely follow. There is not one SAD eater who will suddenly overnight adopt perfect nutrition and source every bite from the top farms. Intimidating sugar addicts or low fat advocates with “perfection” instead of reasonable change is not only unrealistic, but it does a disservice.

    Vegans can and will and do have children. It’s better for some to adopt some fish and meat, because NONE are going to “wait” many “years” to repair from the “nutritional wasteland.” Babies are born all the time the world over into imperfect circumstances and not even the Weston A. Price foundation can change that.

    I think this review was very meanspirited and elitist. The last thing Weston followers want is to become an elitist, disdainful cult like vegans, who spend all their time criticizing others who aren’t vegetarian enough. Vegans exclude the imperfect and refuse differences of priority and judge others constantly with their bizarre sense of morality. We should be the opposite, a support system to procure more information, change, and real food.

    Nina successfully brings better food to a wide audience, helping people adopt and grow new habits and thirst for new information. It’s incredibly small to discredit a whole book of enthusiastic life-changing information over her years as a vegan or store bought milk. In fact, I’ve never had the pleasure of buying raw milk since the only place I can get it in my area is by a long drive in a car, and I don’t believe in cars. In fact, I’m “team Paleo” and we don’t believe in eating grains at all, but we don’t shun either Sally Fallon or Nina Planck for encouraging whole grains soaked. After all, we don’t want people without access or money for meat to starve to death. My diet is imperfect, but since finding Sally’s cookbook the changes I’ve made have helped cure a whole host of autoimmune disorders, and I’m not going to obsess or cry over spilled milk.

  3. dandeliongirl says:

    I loved this book!
    Like Lorette, I too am shocked that this got a thumbs down review! I think this book is an excellent book for those transitioning from the typical American diet. I’ve given Nourishing Traditions to friends and they’ve been overwhelmed by it and found it to read like a textbook. Real Food for Mother and Baby was a breath of fresh air for me! I wholeheartedly support the Weston A. Price message but let’s face it, it can be a very hard way to eat in our culture, especially if you can’t afford pastured beef and raw cheeses! We have been able to change a LOT in our diet since reading Nourishing Traditions but it took one step at a time.
    You have to remember what the effects of stress do on the body too. When I try to eat strictly by the WAPF guidelines I tend to get very stressed. So, I’ve done what I can and don’t fret the rest. That’s the kind of attitude that Nina Planck has cultivated too and I greatly appreciate that.
    This review did seem rather mean-spirited and judgmental. Let’s have a little grace for people and celebrate each small step that they’re able to make for better health. Nina’s book is a good book and I would recommend it to any pregnant mom! As they get used to eating ‘real food’ then they can be introduced to the more labor intensive WAP guidelines.

  4. Allison says:

    This is a fantastic book
    This is a great book in terms of information and readability. I don’t like how reviewer Czapp points to author’s Nina Planck’s body and c-section birth as evidence of her nutrition advice being unsound. With this kind of flawed and hurtful reasoning, what would Czapp say about WAPF founder Sally Fallon’s not being able to breastfeed successfully? Besides, Nina Planck later went on the have TWIN vaginal births and nursed successfully. Go Nina!

  6. Maria Elena says:

    For strong advocates of the Weston A. Price Diet, I can see how this book doesn’t satisfy. However, I thought this book was an excellent resource! Like others have said, WAPF can be extremely overwhelming for the novice or typical American. Nina’s approach is easy to understand and so accessible. I gave this book to my sister when she became pregnant and I think it helped her tremendously in improving her diet. Had I given her Nourishing Traditions she probably wouldn’t have even read it. I love Nourishing Traditions and use it all the time, but it has definitely been a long road in getting me there and I thank Nina Plank for even getting me on that road. I think her books Real Food What to Eat and Why & Real Food for Mother and Baby are great introductions to WAPF, not to mention the latter is one of the only mother/ baby food books out there that addresses traditional diets.

  7. lizi says:

    i agree with some of the other comments and also the author of the review. the review is a bit harsh and comes off elitist at times. i think that nina planck’s real-world conversion to traditional foods echoes that of many of us. i know i did’t go from low-fat yoplait and store bought salad dressings to WAPF type diet over night! it has been over 6 years since i first read nourishing traditions and i am still making baby steps in some areas (like organ meat), so i identify with the planck in that regard.
    but i do agree with the review, that these shortcomings do have consequences in our child-bearing and nursing years. consequences that cannot always be shrugged off or cheerfully dismissed as planck seems to do when she’s “given it her best shot”. i don’t think the review went too far in pointing to these dietary pitfalls as possibly leading to a c-section. it is obvious, and the reviewer did not have to draw that correlation. and as painful as it is for us to admit, in our culture where c-section rates are closer to 50%, it bears being questioned. why does a seemingly healthy woman still end up with a c-section? of course we may not always know, but sometimes there are factors that could certainly contribute.
    i think there is still something positive to be said for the book, though. the transition to a WAPF style diet is staggering when you are starting from a SAD, or even the standard american “healthy” diet of low-fat, high carb, processed foods. but i have to agree with the reviewer that nina planck falls short of implementing the diet in many ways not only during her pregnancy but also in feeding her baby/toddler. to think of her travelling all over the place at the expense of her baby’s critical stage of development and establishing eating habits that will last a lifetime boggles my mind and saddens me.
    in that way, the author really does not embrace the slow WAPF lifestyle.
    i really think we do need a more lay-friendly book to introduce WAPF to expecant parents or families, one that is not overwhelming, not totally hostile to vegetarianism, and easy to follow and make better food choices, even if it is baby steps at a time.

  8. Tania says:

    Surprised
    I too am suprised that this one got a thumbs down. It doesn’t describe the ‘ideal’ diet, but it has great info for moms who know nothing about traditional foods. I am indebted to this book as I pulled it off the library shelf during my first pregnncy. It was the first time I had ever heard of any alternative diet to the SAD low fat soy filled diet promoted widely.

    This book got me buying pastured eggs, grassfed beef, and making broth. It took me a while but now 1.5 years later I have read a lot more on WAP, and we are making great strides towards a traditional diet… but only b/c I first came across this book!
