Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Sure.: It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Yes: Because with whole fruits and veggies, you get the fiber which results in less consumption and quicker satiety (fullness). Smoothies have more sugar from the fruits and veggies due to more being used to make the smoothie. Plus, most smoothies have added ingredients like sugars, syrups, powders, etc - unless you make it yourself. ...Read more

Is cereal healthy or whole grain bread?

Eat 2 Beat CA, Pt.12: WHOLE GRAINS: For years, we've been urging our patients to eat three to five servings of whole grains a day. There's good reason: they are linked to a lower risk of colorectal cancer, as a 2013 Danish study of 108,000 people has found. What's more, whole grains offer protection against other chronic conditions, including heart disease & type 2 diabetes. (Ref: AARP, 5/2014) ...Read more

Are fruit juices with high fructose corn syrup unhealthy for my child?

Are fruit juices with high fructose corn syrup unhealthy for my child?

Absolutely!: Milk and water are the only fluids kids need to drink. Juice, soda, sugared drinks of any type only introduce empty calories. "no sugar added" fruit juice is a food industry trick because all juices have their own sugars. 8 oz of orange juice has the equivalent of nearly 8 tsp of sugar! a 12 oz soda has nearly 10 tsp of sugar. High fructose corn syrup is particularly unhealthy. ...Read more

Is it normal for 7 month baby to eat 200gr of fresh fruit porridge (banana, apple, medlar, cherry, cherry plum, peach) between meals?

Is it normal for 7 month baby to eat 200gr of fresh fruit porridge (banana, apple, medlar, cherry, cherry plum, peach) between meals?

Childhood Obesity: Nope. Not at all. That is 800 calories. You are the parent. You are responsible for the health of your child. This is obscene and to me child abuse to allow your child to become grossly obese. If they are not obese they soon will be at that rate. 800 calories in a 7 month old between regular meals? That is extremely unhealthy. ...Read more

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Sounds good to me: I recommend people eat fruits & vegetables of all colors as the colors are made by different beneficial micronutrients. It's great that you're eating the veggies you do & that you're getting colorful fruits, so you're doing fine, but consider adding in some red/orange/yellow peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes & purple cabbage. You might also consider seeing a good homeopath for your thought issues. ...Read more

Is it ok to eat organic sprouted wheat berry and sprouted flaxseed bread during pregnancy?

OK if no gluten-sens: This is ok unless you are among the 1% of people with celiac disease or the 10-20% who have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. See http://abt.Cm/1dopk3o some nutritionists advise everyone limit intake of grains, even whole grains, as too much starch is not healthy for anyone, but i feel sprouted bread is a healthy choice for most people in moderation.

Should I be giving my baby fruit and vegetable juices if I am also formula-feeding him?

Should I be giving my baby fruit and vegetable juices if I am also formula-feeding him?

No: The answer is no.If breast-feeding is not possible, infant formulas contain all of the required nutrients needed by healthy infants. Juices have no nutritional value and should not be used.They provide unneccessary calories and will probably interfere with normal feeding.Occasionally pediatricians will use juice as a natural laxative for a constipated baby, but otherwise juice should not be used. ...Read more

6 months baby. Just started solids. What kind of vegetables are recommended to start with? And can I feed her fruits like avocado? What about juice?

6 months baby. Just started solids. What kind of vegetables are recommended to start with? And can I feed her fruits like avocado? What about juice?

Adding solid foods: You can mash or puree most vegetables for you baby. Banana and avocado are easy foods for baby. Introduce a new food every few days. Remember it can take 15 times before a baby "likes" a food. A serving size at this age is less than a tablespoon. Remember this is a messy time, babies love to feel their food. Juice is not critical for babies, avoid giving more than 4-6 oz of juice a day. ...Read more

Is vegetable and fruit juicing safe? and how often should I drink juice in a week?

I have ibs and scared its cancer or a disease it's getting worse. Is it good to make natural vegetable and fruit juices for antioxidants vitamins ?

Not the key: After decades of work, I know on physician personally who takes antioxidants with the idea that they will improve health or longevity; there may be some here. Inflammatory bowel disease requires extra cancer surveillance and your physician needs to explain this to you. Food choices aren't the key to managing your illness; a holistically-minded evidence-based physician might be a good ally. ...Read more
