Does a raw diet (or largely raw diet) seem to keep your children from getting sick?
My daughter is on a raw foods-dominant diet and I've noticed she doesn't get sick, in fact she hasn't since her diet has improved.
How about everyone else? What sort of a difference have you noticed?

The same has happened to me. My little girl is 7 and she can remember back 2 years once when she was sick for half a day at what she calls the yellow house. Getting sick is not the regular thing.

I discovered raw when I was pregnant back in 2002.. my kid has been mostly raw her whole life.. till this day the only time she has ever felt unwell is on the times she chose to eat standard regular normal cooked foods. And it was just an upset stomach, fever and she threw up and then felt fine again.

Wow that is wonderful to hear. And my daughter's not even 100% raw :) I think she's about 75-80% though, and what a difference it's made.

My son used to get sick and have an ear infection almost every other month.
He hardly gets sick now. When he catches something..he still has energy and is able to go to school and he gets over it fast. He even knows what his body needs to get over something, I noticed one day when he asked for an avocado when he wasn't feeling well. He hates avocados! He had one avocado and went to sleep for most the day and woke up feeling 100% better. Then went back to hating avocados. :p

My son has been raw vegan since birth and he has never really been sick except for one time he came down with a flu when he was about 2 years old and because I was stupid enough to give him some cooked vegan tamales. He is going to be 3 in February and this year he did not get sick at all. That is such a relief for me to see my son well when all the other kids around him are getting sick so often.
