Breastfeeding is revolutionary ~ especially if your mother didn’t…your sisters or friends aren’t…or your work and other life circumstances make it difficult to support. All these scenarios are likely here in Kuwait where the exclusive breastfeeding rate at 3 months is only 12%. So the decision to breastfeed is counter culture, with large marketing industries and social pressures trying to convince you to do otherwise. For those of us who were raised by hippies…or at least mothers who believed everything that was natural was better (garlic paste under the feet or in drinks for illnesses, comfrey tea for congestion, homemade home-ground wheat bread)…it was a decision that was second nature. But if you are new to to breastfeeding, your decision could be revolutionary for you, your children, your sisters and friends, and everyone you influence. Read the rest of the article on Birth Kuwait.
Food Revolution Kuwait will be held on Saturday May 19th from 11am-7pm
Location: The Women’s Culture and Social Society.

A fun little song to teach your kids about the meaning of reduce, reuse and recycle.

A friend of mine who is a dietitian decided one day to buy a meal from McDonalds and leave it to see what happens to it after a couple of weeks. He posts pictures every once in a while to show us the progress and how the meal changes throughout time. After looking at the pictures you truly wonder what do they put in our food??! I’m going to share with you a few of his pictures. This is the meal after 2 months. He says that the meal still looks edible, it has hardened but no mold has appeared.
Is this what we want to feed our kids? Remember this the next time your decide to treat your kids to junk food!
