At Simply Chickie, we’re very proud to be part of what has become known as the “Green Baby Movement”, which is about creating healthy babies and health in the world for the next generation. From pregnancy to birth and from birth throughout life, the foods we eat and feed our children teach them, both consciously and unconsciously, where our priorities lie – and where theirs should, as well.
While overcoming the generally accepted norms is not easy, the goal of such a movement is admirable; to create a world in which we conceive and raise our children in ways that will enable all of us to raise a vibrant, healthy generation of children who are ready to perpetuate that vision of healthy living in the generations that follow.
Raising a Green Baby
As tools to aid us in this quest, Dr. Alan Greene has written two books that I believe are invaluable to young parents, especially mothers:
Raising Baby Green: The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care, by Dr. Alan Greene and Jeanette Pavini
- “In this illustrated and easy-to-use guide, noted pediatrician Dr. Alan Greene, a leading voice of the green baby movement, advises parents how to make healthy green choices for pregnancy, childbirth, and baby care—from feeding your baby the best food available to using medicines wisely.”
Feeding Baby Green: The Earth Friendly Program for Healthy, Safe Nutrition During Pregnancy, Childhood, and Beyond, by Dr. Alan Greene
- “This unique guide includes advice on how to transform a baby’s eating habits that will positively impact their health & development for the rest of their lives. Dr. Greene has included everything a parent needs to know about creating healthy, nutritious meals that help avoid childhood obesity & prevent childhood disease.”
These books provide parents with the tools they need to set a strong foundation for their children to have a healthy and positive relationship with food throughout their lives, while also making parents aware of smarter choices, and of applying green principles to the almost overwhelming array of products that can harm your baby – and your entire family.
