When Can Children Begin Eating Chlorella and Spirulina?

By Bob McCauley, ND

One of the questions I am often asked is whether spirulina and/or chlorella can be given to a child, as though a child isn’t a human being until they become an adult.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Once weaned, babies can be treated exactly like an adult in regard to nutrition.  You can refer to my 7 Component Health Protocol for what actually belongs in the body and what does not.  A weaned baby can be given exactly like an adult only scaled down to their tiny size.

An expectant mother on a Raw-food Diet will give birth to a healthier baby than a mother whose diet consists mainly of cooked foods.  The fetus of an expectant mother who is a raw foodist receives nutrients that can only be derived from nature.  A fetus will only be as healthy as the nutrients that the host mother is providing to it.  Expectant mothers should move slowly to the Raw-food Diet.  She should not put herself through a major detoxification while pregnant because it would be too much strain on her and her fetus.

Babies can begin consuming raw juices once they are weaned.  They will drink any fresh juice you give them, especially if it contains a little sweet fruit.  You can also put a gram of Spirulina and Chlorella powder into the juice as well.  A weaned infant can be treated the same as an adult in regard to their diet as long as it is comprised of raw foods.

A 1 year old baby can consume 3 – 4 grams per day, more if you want to raise them as a vegan.  As you can see, Chlorella Baby Hazel, took my advice and has dove into chlorella, literally and figuratively.  She is our official “Chlorella Pin Up Baby of 2012”!
