Teaching Kids How to Live and Cook the “Nourishing Traditions” Way

Nourishing Traditions children's cookbook

Nourishing Traditions—part cookbook, part phenomenon—inspired half a million people to return to the wisdom of traditional human diets and start eating healthfully again.

The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care gave pregnant mothers, as well as moms with newborns and children, a comprehensive guide to valuable holistic nutrition and advice on everything from natural therapies to alternative treatments for many childhood illnesses.

Now comes The Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children. Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, paired up with first-time author Suzanne Gross to deliver a primer on cooking that’s destined to equip a whole new generation with the skill and wisdom they need to nourish their bodies with natural, nutrient dense ingredients. When it comes to enjoying a lifetime of good health, few skills are more important.

This beautifully illustrated, lovingly crafted, spiral-bound book features practical, step-by-step tips and a full color pictorial overview of the recipe from beginning to end. And unlike most cookbooks for kids that focus on cutting processed foods into cute shapes, the Cookbook for Children celebrates the ingredients championed by the groundbreaking nutrition research of Weston A. Price: Butter. Eggs. Raw milk. Meats. Fish. Broth. Fermented foods. Whole grains. Vegetables. These are all the ingredients that will give kids a head start on good health.

But don’t let the title fool you. The Cookbook for Children isn’t just for kids. It’s great for beginning cooks and cooks who want a primer on the basics before tackling some of the more complicated recipes from Nourishing Traditions.

So go ahead, parents and grandparents, uncles and aunts, caretakers and teachers—help the kids in your life (and beginning cooks of all ages!) have fun and flourish in the kitchen. Help them learn how to become confident, successful, and healthy in the kitchen. Who knows—somewhere down the line they may end up teaching you a thing or two about good health.
