Child Has Never Eaten A Gram Of Sugar — This Is What She Looks Like Today.

Shan Cooper avoids to give her daughter Grace most of the meals that ordinary children consume. Little Grace would rather eat organic chicken and veggies than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the crust removed. Shan has been feeding Grace a “Paleo Diet” since she was born. The paleo diet eliminates wheat and dairy in favour of items that cavemen could scavenge for, such as meat, fish, eggs, fruits and vegetables. While Shan’s lifestyle for Grace may appear to be extreme, the Australian mother asserts that her kid almost never gets sick and loves eating healthy foods.

Grace’s regular breakfast consists of eggs cooked in coconut oil with roasted vegetables such as sweet potato, carrots, potatoes, and steamed broccoli, as well as a quarter of an avocado and a tiny scoop of sauerkraut. It sounds like an upscale cafe meal, but for the Australian toddler, it’s just a regular morning snack. Lunch is generally organic roasted chicken with roasted and steamed veggies like broccoli. Grace enjoys eating fruit throughout the day. Her favourite fruits are strawberries and bananas. Then, for supper, she may have spaghetti bolognese with organic meat topped with organic tomato sauce (using zucchini noodles instead of pasta noodles, obviously).

Shan, who has an agricultural science degree and has published a healthy food e-book, claims her kid has only had one cold in her short life. Shan credits her daughter’s achievement to the immune-boosting characteristics of her daughter’s fruit and vegetable-rich diet. The delighted mother said that she spends a lot of time around other kids who are sick all the time who have snotty noses, coughs, and colds but she just doesn’t pick it up. Definitely not since she is shielding her from any of that. She is certain that a nutrient-dense diet is helping her immune system.

Despite the amount of planning that goes into her daughter’s diet, Shan is worried about her daughter consuming sugary and grainy foods one day, particularly with birthday celebrations full of cake and soda on the horizon. Shan remarked that what she eats now isn’t strange, nothing that normal people wouldn’t eat. She adores it. She don’t give her toast, cereal, or anything else. That stuff isn’t going to kill her, she thought again. She is not going to have a hissy fit if she eats a slice of bread.

Shan said that she does not want there to be any disordered eating around food. Females, in particular, have a disproportionate number of eating disorders. She desires Grace to eat whatever makes her happy. That is why the mother eats in this manner. She don’t believe that eating a slice of bread will kill her. When she goes out to dinner with pals, she’ll simply eat whatever is on the menu. She is not going to make a big deal out of it. She’ll also discover what makes her happy and what doesn’t.

Dr. Rosemary Stanton, a noted dietician, said she would undoubtedly sound a note of warning to any women contemplating following Shan down this route. It’s rarely a good idea to put a child on such a restricted diet, especially when there are no valid reasons for it, Dr. Stanton added. She noted that she hoped Shan understood an awful lot about nutrition, since she was worried about Grace’s diet’s absence of grains and legumes. Depriving her child of grains and legumes will make it much more difficult for her to maintain a balanced diet, Stanton added.

Dr. Stanton encouraged parents who were concerned to consult with an accredited nutritionist. Shan Cooper, on the other hand, dismisses criticism of her daughter’s healthy diet, wondering why parents who habitually give their children harmful foods are not encouraged to “tread lightly.” When asked why parents who take their kids to McDonald’s for supper aren’t given the same counsel.

She said to take one’s socks off if one wishes to feed one’s child one of the most nutrient-void pieces of crap ever. She is not going to troll anyone on the internet. One should do the right thing for one’s child. She finds it strange that people think eating a plate of vegetables over a piece of bread is offensive. Actually, limiting processed sugars and foods and introducing more whole, natural foods into one’s child’s diet cannot go wrong. Remember, real food doesn’t have ingredients; real food is ingredients.
