Parenting / Raising Kids Paleo, how do you do it?!?!
« on: September 22, 2010, 03:31:34 PM »
My boyfriend and I, are planning to start our family in a few years, when we'll both be at our bests physically.
We've been discussing how to keep our kids Paleo, for at least the first 18 years of their lives. After that, we'd trust them to make the best decisions for themselves.
It has occurred to us, to lie to them and just say "Oh, you're allergic to Grains, starch, etc etc etc", but that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I foresee no real problems keeping the Paleo lifestyle throughout childhood, and up to the pre-teen ages, since that is the easiest time period to keep your children eating under your control.

My current major concern when looking to the future, is what to do about Sleepovers, Birthday parties, and dinners eaten with other families. What do you tell the other parents? Not everyone is too supportive of a Paleo Lifestyle as many of you know. (In fact, I know people that would feed a Paleo child grains behind the parents back, because they feel he/she is being DEPRIVED!!!!)
I don't want to play the Allergy card, because many parents do not want to take that kind of responsibility for a child into their home. I also don't want my child to go to birthday parties, and not be able to eat anything. (Main foods of parties being, Pizza, Hot dogs, chips and cake!) I feel very discouraged already about the kids I don't even have yet!

How do you raise a happy, healthy, Paleo child in this modern day?! I don't feel ready to have children until I have a plan for their health and Paleo lifestyle.

My name is Kim and I turn 21 tomorrow!! (September 23rd!)

As of Today I am down 21lbs.
My start weight was 233lbs, and I now weigh 212lbs.
I have always been overweight, and the buck stops here. Done. No more and never again. My goal weight is 130lbs, but that is completely objective depending on muscle gains and how my body looks according to my frame size as I become slimmer and healthier.

I work Part-Time and Live with my Boyfriend (who also frequents this forum!) and we both are enjoying a Paleo lifestyle, as best we can in this modern day. We plan to stay Paleo for the rest of our lives and are encouraging our friends and family to make healthier choices with us. We will be raising our future family Paleo and are already trying to figure our way around a Grain Filled culture and society to make it more possible.

I am very excited to join this community! It's nice to meet all of you!
Cheers to a better, healthier lifestyle! ;D
