Paleo Cooking with Kids: an introduction
Danielle Currey, ND
Meet Dr. Currey:

I am a local Naturopathic Doctor practicing primary care here in Clackamas Oregon. I treat patients of all ages and conditions. My role is to help you realize your health goals and help you prevent future complications.
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathy focuses on 6 main tenets:
First do no harm
Treat the whole person
Treat the root cause of disease
Prevention as best medicine
Doctor as teacher
Trust in the healing power of nature
Naturopathic doctors address disease using these tenets as guidance and use many different treatment modalities to individualize care to their patients.
Why Paleo?
Low in common food allergens
Low in sugar
High in real food
Kid friendly
Makes you feel good
Lots of recipes and resources
Can be easy or complicated - your choice
Why cook with kids?
It brings the family together
It helps kids understand where their food comes from
It's fun
It helps you pass along your knowledge and values
Someday they can cook for you
Someday they will move out and need to cook for themselves...
A word about food intolerance:
This is a tricky subject and is not the same thing as a food allergy. Food allergies put someone at risk for developing anaphylaxis. Food intolerances are much harder to identify as their effects can take days to show up and are more insidious. Symptoms may include:
Skin rashes
Digestive upset
Mental fogginess
Depression like symptoms
Recurrent infections

There are tests that can reveal food intolerances, but the only 100% accurate way to identify them is through an elimination diet.

Tips and Tricks:
Cut vegetables ahead of time
Let kids measure and pour and tie it into their math lessons.
Let kids peel vegetables with a peeler
Use step stools so they can reach the counter, sink, and stove.
Have the kids set the table
Make clean-up part of the fun
Have kids help plan the week's menu
Start small with one or two meals a week, and schedule more time for meal prep.
Let them take charge of a treat.
Show your appreciation of their help
Tolerating the Transition
Have kids help pick out produce and pick new foods to try.
Try everything at least 5 times
Find new recipes for old favorites
Take kids grocery shopping and give them a list of things to find.
Let kids play waiter
Give small choices
Have "build your own" meal parties (salads, tacos, omelets, etc.)
Be patient and understand that it will take time.
Cashew Date Bars
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup pitted dates
Blend well in a food processor until they form a crumbly/sticky consistency. Roll out between two sheets of wax paper, cut into 1 inch squares, chill for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
