Ok so here goes: I am a mom to 3 (almost 4) & my oldest son never had digestion problems. My daughter started having severe constipation at 6 months & has fought it ever since (age 4 now). We tried everything for her & nothing... (more)
We're going on a road trip after Christmas. There are lots of travel related threads here in which the traveler is advised to consider intermittent fasting, or essentially try getting by on appetite-sating jerky or coconut manna. Well, those... (more)
I am slowly trying to transition my three-year-old twins to a healthier, closer-to-Paleo diet from a "healthier version" of the SAD (they currently eat meats, fruits, veggies, dairy, whole grains, legumes, limited sugar, limited processed foods,... (more)
You sound like an amazing mum - you're going to get some fantastic information from other PH'ers here! I don't have bebe's so other mum's advice will be more spot on than me, but I thought to offer up a few helpful things that you may, or may not... (more)
I am trying to educate myself and have gradually begun eating a more paleo diet b/c of my grandchild. (I'm 66 yrs old) It makes sense and I never ate a lot of junk before. I'm more of a "moderation in all things" person and will continue to use a... (more)
Hi all. I have an ex who is seriously questioning my "experimenting" with our children on a "fad diet" and I need some help in justifying it to him. He says there us no scientific "proof" paleo is better than general American diet, and that... (more)
Probably just thinks that quality food costs more and doesn't want it to increase child support payments. If anything, it should make it cheaper for him since they won't have as many medical bills. Replacing gluten-grains with rice and potatoes... (more)
Just curious what other paleo parents out there are feeding their kids. It can be hard when you're the only one in your playgroup not letting your kid slurp baby "fruit" "food" out of a foil pouch. Would like some reassurance that we're on the... (more)
We're lactopaleo, with a 4.5 year old and a nursing 20 month old, eating a wide variety these days, including seasonal summer fruit. For a decent idea of what's in regular rotation, check out the ~110 (and growing) posts where I show pictures and... (more)
I'm a paleo guy married to a non-paleo-but-trying girl. We've dialled our 7-year old daughter's diet in to what I would consider a paleoish diet - maybe 75% for you paleostatisticians out there. Although we've come a long way, we haven't gotten... (more)
I have questions relating to feeding my family. I have been Paleo since the end of May. I continue to educate myself and fine tune and find it impacting the way I want to feed my family-- Which is a great thing, but a hard sell :-) I'm married... (more)
My daughter is 3 and her doctor prescribed her fluoride since our water isn't fluoridated. I've heard bad things about it, but I can't remember what any of it is. Keeping in mind that her diet is not 100% Paleo, and that I'm terrible about... (more)

I've heard a lot about people cheating or accidentally ingesting non-paleo foods and being sick for days. Is this the case for everyone, or just those with guts that aren't fully healed? For example, the GAPs & SCD diets claim that, if... (more)
I think it's more likely that after eating well people just start noticing how bad grains/sugar etc make them feel. I used to think a slight headache and sore tummy was "normal".
Can you help me find the best banana muffin recipe? Best, meaning closest to non-paleo banana bread... My kids are really rebelling against eggs in the morning and I did try one recipe for banana/apple muffins (Everyday Paleo) which I thought... (more)
I just read an article on skipping breakfast at Gnolls and while I skip breakfast, I can't allow my kids to leave the house without it. When they go to school, they don't have the option of eating whenever they want. Their first break doesn't... (more)
Just poured out an expired bottle of pedialyte. I'm getting tired of pouring this stuff out, especially since it's not natural. I'm wondering if kids even need this stuff. If so, is there a way I can make my own as-needed? Thanks!
I am taking the kids to Disney in a few weeks and I noticed when making meal reservations there was an option to check Gluten Allergies. Of course I did, however, what should I expect?? Has anyone been to Disney since they went Paleo and if so... (more)
Ack! It's October, time for the Annual Dress up and door to door collection for childhood Diabetes... Let's discuss great ideas for the kids, parties, etc that are Paleo and candy free, but still good fun for the kids.
I plan on letting my kids devour as much of the junk as they want on Halloween, since they don't eat much crap the rest of the year. Of course, I will just secretly hope it makes them miserably ill. :) It's too much of a downer, IMO to be... (more)
My question is the same as the one that was asked over here http://paleohacks.com/questions/91012/how-to-increase-your-growth-hormone-naturally.html but how I can apply this for a 9 year old boy who is 2 inches below 5th... (more)
I have 6 year old boy/girl twins. I started them on a Paleo diet plan (not DIET though, more "nutritional," I hope) last week. I made TONS of yummy snacks from the PaleoParents' ebook and How to Eat Like a Dinosaur. I was thrilled that they... (more)
I think your plan is good. Give them more fruits and starches and they will come out of ketosis.
To answer this question, you'll really need to know a bit about my son.. He is an EXTREMELY stubborn nearly 3 year old little boy. I have several behavior problems with him that I have yet to find a solution to. He is very particular about what... (more)
My youngest is the pickiest eater I have ever met. He has no more than 5 foods/meals he will eat, none of which are very healthy, and will only drink apple juice and chocolate milk. We went on vacation a few weeks ago and we almost had to take... (more)
I am trying to find a fish oil supplement for my 6 year old. We try to eat oily fish as much as possible and I have been trying to get better sources for our meat to increase his omega 3 intake. However, I would like to have a good quality... (more)
Hi there. I have 4 kiddos, (3, 6, 9, and 11).. Does anyone have any advice for how to ease them into a paleo lifestyle without giving them "carb-flu" symptoms? The 9 year old is an athlete who works out 14 hours/week. ( Gymnast). I don't want to... (more)
I am a nanny to an 11-year old girl on the autism spectrum. In the past couple years, her weight has gotten out of control. She is about 4'6" and 110 lbs. Her parents are also very overweight and her dad is a very opinionated and fat-phobic... (more)
We are taking our 2 and 4 year old on a trip in a few weeks (flying into Fort Lauderdale and then cruising for a week.) I'm not concerned about the cruise itself as there will be paleo options for us there, but does anyone have tips on paleo... (more)
