Raw Kids vs. The National Average

I want to use this blog space in part to document our four raw vegan children’s growth and development. I’ll put up their heights and weights periodically.

Today the kids ate:

9:00 AM orange Juice

10:00 AM grapes

11:00 AM soaked garbanzo beans made with oil, avocado, salt, and oregano

2:00 PM raw soup made with tomato, coconut meat, garlic, almonds (soaked), cucumber, broccoli, salt, oil, and oregano

4:00 PM chocolate mousse made with soaked almonds, carob, and honey

5:30 PM almond milk with carob and honey

6:30 PM brazil nuts and seaweed

8:00 PM cherries and strawberries

My four Raw Vegan Children

This is a sort-of follow up to the documenting of our kids in our film “Breakthrough”. Once or twice a year I compare our children’s growth to the standard height and weight charts issued by the Centers For Disease Control. They can be found online here: http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/growthcharts/

Shale (5), Raven (12), Adagio (2) and Jome (9) above have all been 100% raw for 5 years now except for Adagio who is only two and has been raw since conception.

I nursed them for about 3 years each. But as far as the raw vegan diet each of the children had a slightly different start. :

Raven was cooked-vegan in the womb, cooked-vegan in first year of nursing

Jome was raw-vegan in the womb, cooked-vegan after first five months of nursing

Shale was cooked-vegan in the womb, raw-vegan after first two weeks of nursing

Adagio was raw-vegan in the womb, raw-vegan while nursing

Here’s how the children measure up today. Keep in mind these charts are based on the average weight and 1 in 3 children is overweight. And that being underweight does not mean one is unhealthy.

Adagio (male) 25 months old, 22 lbs. and 34 inches tall (2’10”)

Weight Comparisons

Average weight (50th percentile) is 28 lbs., (6 lbs. heavier than Adagio)

Minimum weight (5th percentile, which means only 5 % of children are under this weight) is 24 lbs., (2 lbs. heavier than Adagio)

Maximum weight (95 percentile, which means only 5% of children are heavier than this weight) is 34 lbs. (12 lbs. heavier than Adagio)

Adagio at 25 months old is 22 lbs. which is the minimum weight of a 19 month old, the average weight for an 11 month old and the heaviest weight for a 7 month old.

Adagio is technically 2 lbs. underweight.

Adagio at 25 months old is 34 inches tall which is the minimum height of a 31 month old, the average height for a 23 month old and the tallest height for a 17 month old.

Adagio is as tall as 25% of boys his age
