Nourishing Our Children is a relatively new (2005) non-profit that is based in San Francisco, CA. I want to help get their message to others.
What is their mission?
“To address the dramatic deterioration in the health of our children. This decline is evidenced by the rise in child obesity, dental deformities such as crooked teeth, learning disabilities, behavior problems and chronic diseases such as asthma, allergies and diabetes. Years of research initiated by nutrition pioneer Dr. Price have linked these and other conditions to dietary deficiencies, among other causes. Our cause is dedicated to educating parents on the serious nutritional risks of today’s standard American diet, and to restoring to that diet the nutrient-dense foods that are crucial to the health of our children.”
What makes them different from other nutritional non-profits?
“Our cause not only identifies the problems with Oreos, cola, candy and other obvious junk foods. We also present research that illustrates how foods widely assumed to be nutritional – including packaged foods commonly described as “organic”, “natural” or “fortified” – are themselves heavily processed and stripped of nutritional value. While these labels provide a convenient way for parents to determine which foods to buy, the items associated with those labels often betray the standard of optimal nutrition.”
Watch this you tube video to understand their vision. It is 20 minutes and you may have to watch it in pieces, but it is worth the wait. My challenge is to watch the first 3 minutes, and then go from there. It is very informative and motivating. I am grateful that there are people fighting for worthy causes. This is something I am very passionate about.
