“There was a time when the safest place for a child was home.” The music begins and the video reads nostalgia for the past, when kids played in sun drenched yards, ate pure food, and played with hand-made toys. It was a time when our grandmothers cleaned with soap and water, and tucked their kids in under pure wool blankets. This video, by Healthy Child Healthy World is a must-see. The message is powerful and clear: our kids live and breathe in a chemical-filled world, and the only solution is to go back to the basics!
Going back to basics, there is no question that parents today are more conscious about their children’s health than ever before. But the message that has gained the most resonance seems to be focused on food. While this is a great achievement that we should all be happy about, it doesn’t provide all the answers we need. Healthy eating is just one part of a healthy life.
