Raising Radically Healthy Kids. Nutrition Starts on the Farm!
October 11, 2023
At Triple E Farm, we are committed to providing families with high-quality animal-based foods, organ meats, and locally-grown produce that nourish your body and the land.
We know that not everyone has the chance to live on a farm, and that's why we want to bring some of its goodness to you!
We encourage you to take small steps towards radical health. Every little change counts and can make a big difference in your family's well-being. Check out our list of tips for raising radically healthy kids:
Let's dig in!
1.Feed kids animal-based foods from regenerative farms like ours.
Studies show that animal-based foods are essential for children's growth and development. That's why we believe in sourcing our meats from local regenerative farms that prioritize animal welfare, soil health, and sustainable agriculture.
2.Know your farmer, know your food, and maybe they will eat it too!
We get it - navigating the grocery store with kids can be a real challenge, especially when they're pulling you towards all the colorful, junky snacks marketed right at them. It can be overwhelming to decipher all the labels and certifications on the food packages, and even more frustrating when you're not sure what's actually in the product.
That's why we offer complete transparency about our farming practices at Triple E Farm. We want you to know exactly where your food comes from and how it's produced. When you buy from us, you can feel confident and safe knowing that you're getting high-quality, sustainably-raised food that supports your family's health and wellness.
Plus, we've found that children are even more likely to try new foods when they know the farmer who grew them or have visited the farm themselves. That's why we invite you to come visit us and meet our team! You'll get a chance to see our animals, tour the land, and learn first-hand about regenerative farming practices.
At Triple E Farm, we're committed to making healthy and sustainable food accessible to families like yours. We believe that by working together, we can create a brighter future for our children and the planet. So next time you're at the grocery store, skip the stress and order from our farm instead!
3.Feed them organ meats and bones.
Organ meats and bones are often overlooked in modern diets, yet they are some of the most nutrient-dense foods available. At Triple E Farm, we offer a variety of high-quality organ meats and bones that are packed with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
We understand that introducing new foods to kids can be tricky. That's why we suggest starting slow and "hiding" small amounts of organ meats and bones in familiar foods like meatballs and hamburgers at first, while your family adjusts to the new taste. Homemade bone broth is also a great way to incorporate these nutrient-dense foods into your family's diet, and it's a delicious and comforting drink that kids love to sip on!
You may even find that your kids enjoy digging into roasted canoed marrow bone, pretending to be a caveman while getting all the amazing health benefits that come with it! Our goal is to make healthy and sustainable eating fun and accessible for families like yours.
4.Teach them to eat locally-sourced foods
Eating locally-grown foods is not only good for your health, but it's also beneficial for the environment. When you choose foods that are in season and grown nearby, you're supporting a strong local food system, reducing your carbon footprint, and enjoying meals that are fresher and more flavorful.
As we mentioned earlier, kids are more likely to eat foods from a farmer they know personally or a farm they have visited. That's why we believe in creating a personal connection between our customers and our farm. When you buy our eggs, for example, you can tell your kids that Farmer Tony is the one who raised those hens, and his care and attention resulted in these delicious and nutritious eggs. It's an experience that's more personal and engaging, and kids love feeling like they're part of something special.
5.Invest in future generations with regenerative farming.
Regenerative farming practices play a crucial role in enhancing biodiversity, restoring soil health, and sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. By supporting regenerative farms like ours, you're investing in a more sustainable future for your family and the planet.
If there is one cause to support that can make a significant impact on the world we live in, it's regenerative agriculture. This practice touches on almost all of the major issues our society is facing today. If you worry about the future of the world for our children, it's important to teach them about regenerative agriculture and how to source food sustainably. This is a gift that you can give to your children and future generations.
At Triple E Farm, we're committed to practicing regenerative agriculture and promoting sustainable food systems. We believe that small steps towards sustainability can lead to significant positive changes for the environment and human health. By choosing to support regenerative farms like ours, you're making a difference and contributing to a better world for all of us.
6.Allow Less structure, more freedom!
It's important to give kids the time and space to play, explore, and take reasonable risks. By providing more unstructured free time and fewer scheduled activities, you can help foster their creativity, independence, and resilience. Here at Triple E Farm, we encourage our kids to freely explore the farm and learn every day through play and by helping with farm chores.
Even if you don't live on a farm, your kids can still enjoy the same benefits by encouraging them to have outdoor adventures in nearby parks and woods. Visiting farms regularly can also be a fun and educational experience for the whole family. Allowing kids to engage in unstructured play and exploration can help develop important life skills, such as problem-solving, communication, and teamwork.
At Triple E Farm, we believe that providing kids with opportunities to connect with nature and learn through play is essential for their growth and development. So, get those kids outside, exploring, and embracing their sense of adventure!
7.Let them get their hands dirty!
Spending time outdoors and getting a little dirty can have numerous benefits for children's immune system, emotional wellbeing, and overall health. Encouraging them to play, garden, and explore nature is essential, even if it means getting a bit messy.
Living on a farm naturally incorporates this aspect into daily life. However, it's important to be intentional about it in other settings as well. We need to ditch the germ-a-phobe phenomenon that's going on right now and embrace healthy microbes in the soil. Letting kids know that it's okay to get down and dirty and be wild is crucial since we are part of nature after all!
At Triple E Farm, we prioritize spending time outdoors and connecting with nature. We encourage our children to touch, smell, and taste. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience the benefits of outdoor play and exploration. So let's all encourage kids to get outside, get a little dirty, and embrace all that nature has to offer!
At Triple E Farm, we are here to support you in nourishing your roots and empowering your future.
