My son, better known as wildchild on the kids part of the forum here, just asked me last night if I could get more clementines and different things where he could just grab it and eat it. I asked him, "Raw thing?", and he said "Exactly"! He's wanting to up his raw intake! I LOVE IT!
So cool to hear! My children love strawberries. They could eat them everyday! I like to wash them and cut off the tops so they are ready to snack on at anytime!

My son doesn't like them that much, but my daughter hardly ever lets anyone else get some when we have them!

That's awesome! I can imagine how that makes you feel. There's nothing like watching my daughter eat raw food and enjoying it. :)
I'm so happy for you... and your son! :)

Thanks everyone! My husband and I have discussed it, and we are going 100% raw after we move at the beginning of April. I already am, the kids will be when we move, and dh will be with what he eats at home. Right now it is not realistic for him to be 100% raw. So we made the agreement that he will eat that way at home and whatever he wants elsewhere. I'm so stoked!

Shine that is really exciting news...

YAY! That is so wonderful! You are doing your kids a wonderful service. What they eat now not only affects their life long health but also established their future eating habits. The raw fruits and veggies they love now will be their future "comfort foods". That is awesome!!!

Great to hear. My daughter is vegan and loves to snack on fruit also. She never did like candy, chips and the like. I am really lucky that way.
It's great that your children are feeling this way early in life. This is the best gift you could give them.

Thank you to all of you. I know it's important what I'm doing for them. But at the same time, since it feels so natural to me, I don't feel like it's a big deal or anything. Then I come here and read these posts and ya'll are making my eyes tear up with joy!
Thank you so much!
