L’Allaitement

Parce que c’est lui qui compte ! (pas moi)

Gisèle Bundchen, elle a défrayé la chronique il y a peu. Juste ici.

Comment ne pas réagir à cet article. Ou plutôt comment ne pas réagir aux commentaires engendrés par cet article ?
La Gisèle, elle peut bien dire et faire ce qu’elle veut même si sa position est à mon avis maladroitement exprimée.

Ce qui m’interpelle finalement, ce sont toutes ces réactions. Des coups de gueules, des prises de becs, des clans : les pro-nichons d’un coté, les pro-gallia de l’autre et cette lutte interminable à coups de “moi, j’ai raison et tu as tort”, “moi je suis libre de mes choix et j’assume mon allaitement ou mon non-allaitement”
De tout ce que j’ai pu lire déci-delà, une intervention m’a profondément touchée. Pleine de vérité.

“(…) La question de l’allaitement va bien au-delà du “choix” (extrêmement égocentrique…) de LA femme: il s’agit d’une question sanitaire pour l’enfant: et de premier ordre quand on découvre régulièrement que l’alimentation industrielle (dont le lait infantile…) est responsable de la multiplication des cancers, dérèglements endocriniens, maladies auto-immunes, j’en passe, et pas des meilleures… On ramène toujours tout à la mère: SA grossesse, SON accouchement, SA maternité, etc: dans tous les débats concernant la relation parents/enfants aujourd’hui, il y a un grand absent: l’enfant…. pensez-y un peu, avant de hurler à la liberté des femmes (ou ne faites pas de gosses alors: Car il est LA, le choix.)”

Elle a su transcrire en quelques mots les raisons qui ont fait que j’allaite mon fils, les raisons qui m’ont fait modifier mon alimentation pendant ma grossesse, pendant les premières semaines d’allaitement, ces raisons qui m’ont fait abandonner mon corps à l’autre, l’espace de quelques mois (années ?), ces raisons qui font que je ne suis plus la priorité depuis que je me suis pissé sur les doigts le 18 juillet 2009 à 7h du matin et que ce fameux trait rose est venu  bousculer le cours de ma vie.
J’ai décidé de faire un enfant, nous avons décidé de faire un enfant et de lui donner le meilleur, avant même la grossesse.
Et lorsque j’ai arrêté mon contraceptif, je savais que je passerai alors au second plan, que je venais de prendre une décision lourde de conséquences, que je m’engageai pour la vie en acceptant de concevoir un être vivant qui n’a rien demandé et qui serait dépendant de nous, de moi.
Avant même d’être enceinte, je me sentais déjà maman, chargée d’une mission d’une importance extrême.

Une fois enceinte, mon corps est devenu un incubateur, une machine à créer la vie. De là, j’ai, naturellement, effectué tous mes choix en fonction du gnome qui poussait dans mon ventre.
Ma mère m’a souvent répété qu’elle n’a jamais croisé de femme enceinte aussi chiante et aussi stricte sur les choix de bouffe ou le lavage des légumes (non immunisée toxo), la non-consommation d’alcool, etc.
Je continue de prendre ça comme un compliment.

Lorsque tu décides de procréer, tu ne peux pas l’envisager à la légère, fumer, boire, manger des sushis ou du saucisson.
Malgré les aléas de la vie, les choix que nous faisons sont normalement dictés par le bon sens et notre priorité reste de faire du mieux que nous le pouvons pour ce petit être.
Dans cette optique, l’allaitement est donc une évidence.

Avant d’être enceinte, j’ignorais la composition des laits artificiels à l’huile de palme ou des petits pots aux maltodextrines. J’ignorais ce qu’était une maltodextrine (merci maman de m’avoir éclairée).
Mais quand t’es en cloque, que t’es confinée chez toi à t’abrutir devant les maternelles dès 9h du mat’, t’as un peu de temps à perdre sur le net entre deux choix de layette pour te renseigner sur la future alimentation de ta descendance.
Et là, c’est l’hallu totale.
Seule avec mes chats, empêtrée dans mon canapé, le laptop au bout des doigts, que découvrais-je, naïve primi que j’étais : le lobbying de l’alimentation des tout-petits.
Gallia, Guigoz, Nidal, Modilac, Novalac, Bledina – pour ne citer qu’eux –  sont en réalité inadaptés à l’alimentation des tout-petits mais pire, ils contiennent de véritables poisons.

De là, j’ai découvert des marques en marge de la grande distribution comme HIPP, Babybio, Evernat (les deux premiers sont maintenant distribués en grandes surfaces, Casino pour HIPP et Leclerc pour Babybio).

J’ai surtout été confortée dans ma décision d’allaiter mon fils et j’ai pris la décision de lui préparer – le plus souvent possible – sa bouffe une fois diversifié.

Cela fait-il de moi une mamuniste en devenir (ou déjà établie, qui sait !) ? Peut-etre aux yeux de certains. A mes yeux, ça fait simplement de moi une maman.
Une maman, ça apprend à son petit ce qui est bien, ce qui est mal, ça joue, ça rigole, c’est sérieux quand il le faut, ça fait des bisous, ça cajole, ça console, ça rassure, ça protège. Une maman PROTÈGE son petit.

Quand on t’explique que telle ou telle chose est néfaste pour ta progéniture, tu t’en éloignes. C’est l’instinct.
Que nos mères nous aient gavés de Gallia-caca est une chose, elles n’avaient pas accès aux informations et aux diverses études scientifiques auxquelles nous avons accès aujourd’hui.
Qu’une maman choisisse aujourd’hui, en toute connaissance de cause, de donner à son tout du Guigoz-o-Prout est, par contre, ahurissant.
De donner à son enfant des choses néfastes, à répétition et dès la naissance, je ne le comprends pas.

Je conclurai en vous incitant à aller lire cet article dont la métaphore est extrêmement bien trouvée et en rappelant aux parents que selon l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé, pour nourrir nos enfants le lait artificiel n’est à considérer qu’en dernier recours après :

1/ l’allaitement ;
2/ le lait de la mère exprimé et donné à l’enfant autrement qu’au sein ;
3/ le lait d’une autre maman ; et
4/ la nourriture artificielle

French Eating habits

When I first arrived in Australia I knew nothing and no-one.

The car I bought became my only locomotion and bed and breakfast. The best in town! In all towns in fact! ha ha. I was sleeping in my station wagon, where ever and  when ever I had the need. I also was eating in the same fashion!! I had no kind of cooler or esky with me. I cooked meat when I came across public barbecues and when a butcher was nearby. One cheesecake a , almost everyday, was my only routine! I had to have my dose of cheesecake everyday!! Until I got kind of sick of it and slowly started to only eat half one a day and then I moved on to ice cream!! lol Because I had no refrigerating system on board, I had to eat the whole box each time! ha ha. There was no rule as to when and what I was eating… After a few months of this diet, I started to calm down a bit and was actually craving real food. I had fruit often because they were easy, and a cereal bowl every morning, sitting in the sand at 5 am, watching the sun come up, drinking in the beautiful peaceful of such amazing scenes. Australia does have the best sunsets I must say. I don’t remember having vegies, only those that didn’t require cooking I guess. I didn’t cook. Occasionally a little instant noodle box, that was special…getting the little pan out …lol. When I was shopping, I didn’t need to read the labels to understand how unhealthy the food was!! lol. (But that’s another fun part of travelling I guess.)

Australians put sugar in everything and anything! gherkins, mayonnaise, tomato sauce and tomato soup… You name it, I am sure you can find sugar in it! I will never get used to it. I find it sickening. I used to eat a jar of  nuttella with a teaspoon for my dinner. I would sprinkle caster sugar over my mashed potatoes and also on my sliced up tomatoes as a child…  but sugar in every can or pre-packed food doesn’t do it for me. I do like sweet and sour like in some Asian food , if it is well done, “Duck in orange sauce” is definitely one of  weaknesses, an old time favourite actually.)

So I guess the sugar contained in everything I’ve found, combined with a really bad diet and eclectic eating times largely contributed to my putting on 10kgs in only 6 months!! It’s not pretty when you’re as small as I am! I was young, free and alone… life was easy!!! No worries back then… I didn’t care.

When I got back home, I quickly lost all the weight, looked after my hair again and went back to my French eating habits. With no effort at all, just following the simple rules:

  • eat 3 meals a day (no skipping, ever),
  • on time (everyday at the same time),
  • and no snacking of course (even a sugary drink outside a meal is considered snacking here).

Easy. No effort. No sport. It didn’t matter what I ate (of course no more cheesecake or ice cream meals), as long as those rules were respected, it was too easy.

Now, 15 years later, I am back in Australia, married with 2 children.  I have “forced” my French ways onto the family. My husband is still finding it difficult to comply but did recognise the benefits or regularity while we lived over in France together. Despite all the “rich” meals we had, he actually lost weight at first and then stabilised. But since we live here, he’s been struggling again. He is Australian.

It is harder in Australia to maintain your weight because the eating habits are wrong and strongly oppressing everywhere you go. The processed food you can find here teaches from a very young age to eat sugary things.  So, right from the start, the Australian child starts with a major handicap, the result is forever unhappy dieting adults. People don’t seem to gather around the table for a meal together. Mothers don’t seem to cook for lunch. In my culture, breakfast and lunch are the two most important meals of the day. They fuel the day, so they need to be proper meals. If not, then we tend to feel hungry all day and snacking becomes natural for survival reasons. (Not that we’re going to die of starvation any time soon though… lol). Dinner isn’t so important because you go to bed and hardly need any energy for sleeping.

Today, despite having had two beautiful children, and approaching 40, my teenage clothes still fit me. Ok, I agree, my shapes have changed but because my weight is actually a few kilos lighter than 20 years ago, they really still fit me! You see, in my case, having children has been nothing like a burden to keep in shape. Quite the opposite. Having children has kept me on the right path. Because I live in this country I feel I have to be much more French in our eating habits than any French in France. I need to make more efforts in leading by example, and need to instil the habits in my children. That means fighting the whole country’s constant temptations which is like swimming against the currant really. Don’t get me wrong, our diet is far from being perfect, I do the wrong thing a few times a month (or a week) too!!! But I try my best, when possible, to follow my culture when it come to feeding the family properly…

I see mothers who go all day without a meal. They snack, drink a tea or two, probably starving themselves constantly but they are obese! It is so unfair. They haven’t been shown the way. They don’t know how easy it is to stay slim. They don’t know how good it feels to have a good meal twice a day and they feel hungry or are lacking energy all day and have to have another tea to rewind the energy button. I wish I could help them, convince them that it works and really makes life mush easier and cheaper too. Snacks cost a fortune to the individual and to the planet too.(think about all the wrapping)

Children of this nation need to be taught (by their mothers, by leading by example)

  • to eat properly 3 times a day ONLY.
  • Sitting at a table eating.
  • Not playing, not watching TV,
  • just eating and talking around the table like a happy family or bunch of friends.
  • No snacking. (We don’t do morning or afternoon tea. Occasionally when we are with friends we will have one, but if I can avoid it, I will.)
  • Water should be the only source if dehydrated, not sugary tea, orange juice or other fizzy drinks, NEVER. If you need vitamin C, have a real orange, or press one yourself but don’t teach your child to walk around with a can of coke or flavoured milk or anything else flavoured or sugary. Water is the key.

Sugary drinks give you the false impression of being “full”. Everyone knows sugar gives you a short almost instant boost but then your energy levels quickly flop down again. Which means you need another quick fix to keep going through the next hour or so… This is so unhealthy to consume sugary drinks all day, every day, especially destructive outside meals. No wonder Australia has such a high level of obesity.

I have proven that by living the Australian way, anyone can be obese, I was. But by adopting the French way we all have more chances to be slimmer.

So… who is ready to make the swap?

Fishy Banana

 

Last night, “Petite Chérie” and “Hubby” went fishing. They caught three nicely sized tailors (The bluefish, Pomatomus saltatrix). In this festive season we had to find a great and very special way to cook those beautiful sea treasures.

Chicken Curry

Fry the onions, brown the chicken, add Coriander, turmeric, Cumin, Pepper, Chilli, Ginger, Mustard, Cardamom, Cloves and Fenugreek.  Add coconut milk and cut up potatoes. Secure the lid of your pressure cooker.

Bring to the maximum heat and then reduce to keep the pressure. Cook for 15mns (approximately).

Serve with rice, steamed vegetables and fresh coriander if you wish.

Enjoy!

NUTRITION & YOUNG CHILDREN

Food groups to include:
• Essential fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6, are
essential for brain development and the prevention of cognitive
decline. The body cannot synthesise these ‘good’ fats, meaning
that they must be obtained from what we eat. Sources include
flaxseed and some other seeds, oily or fatty fish, as well as
some nuts and vegetables. If your child is resistant to eating
these foods, a supplementary dose of quality fish oil such as
krill oil will suffice.
• Amino acids are critical for healthy brain development and
function. The brain uses amino acids to produce the chemicals
involved in regulating mood, sustaining mental clarity, paying
attention and boosting energy levels. A diet deficient in amino
acids can result in depression and feeling tired or weak. About
half of all amino acids are essential meaning they must be
obtained from animal protein sources such as meat, fish and
eggs, and/or plant protein sources such as soya beans and
quinoa (pronounced keen-wa).
• Antioxidants can help to protect the brain against oxidative
damage that leads to cell injury, aging and disease. Essential
antioxidants, such as Vitamins C, E and selenium, must be
obtained from fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains. For a
treat, choose quality dark chocolate containing at least 70%
cocoa as this contains antioxidants called flavonoids.
Food groups to limit:
• Sugars, artificial sweeteners, colours, preservatives and
artificial flavour enhancers have been found to inhibit the
development of new brain tissue and connections when
consumed in high quantities over a long period of time.
Children who consume diets high in sugars typically display
hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating and crankiness.
The jury is still out with regard to artificial sweeteners but
there is some suggestion that these chemicals are capable
of crossing the delicate blood brain barrier and the long term
effects of this are yet to be seen. Most experts recommend
children only consume these substances in small quantities, if
at all.
• Hydrogenated or trans-fats are not only harmful for the body
but can also distort cell membranes and reduce learning ability.
These ‘bad’ fats are found in margarine, some baked or fried
foods, as well as other long shelf-life processed foods. Most
experts recommend avoiding trans-fats altogether and instead
consuming monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats such
as those found in olive oil. Another healthy oil choice is cold
pressed coconut oil.
In the real world it can be difficult to feed your child whole,
unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods all the time but it’s very
important to limit their consumption of snack foods that contain
little or no nutritional benefit. Consuming a ‘brain healthy’ diet at
least 80% of the time is not only beneficial for your child’s physical
development but has also been shown to promote healthy brain
growth, positive behaviours and learning development.

A La Carte

 

mm

“J” has decided to cook tonight. He is an excellent cook, and he is in the mood, we’re in luck!

Fresh snapper rolled in flour and cooked in butter. This is my favourite because I can choose to eat the greasy bread crumbs around the fish, or not.  Zucchinis and rice. Lemon juice for sauce and a bit of  salt and pepper for some of us.

Yummmm

What a treat! Definitely a winner that one!

Try it some time…

Le Chocolat… The sweetest sin

Dès que je le vois, je suis attirée.

J’aime son apparence, il est brillant et humble a la fois.

Son odeur est enivrante.

Il m’appelle…

Aussitôt que je m’approche, il n’y a plus que lui et moi, sans rien autour. Le temps s’arrête, le calme qu’il m’apporte comble le vide en moi. Je ne pense plus a rien que ce désir de le sentir fondre entre mes doigts puis dans la chaleur de ma bouche.

C’est divin.

Mais il n’est pas bon pour moi.

Enfin… pas bon…

A peine a-t-il disparu que je pense aux séquelles irréparables qu’il laisse derrière lui.

Quand on y a goûté on n’est plus jamais la même personne.

Roasted Chicken

Creating Good Eating Habits

Lunch boxes… that’s where it all starts to go wrong…   Horrible concept if you ask me…  I hate lunch boxes.

Poor parents have to work out a balanced diet for their children… everyday! what a nightmare when you haven’t had any training, lessons or teaching. And who has been taught the essentials? No one. Except dieticians, most people don’t have a clue! What a crime to put parents in charge. How much is this costing every year to the country to fix problems that should not be here in the first place if good habits had been formed?

Back in my home country, meals are provided by schools. The menus have been carefully studied by professional dieticians (whose entire jobs are to related to healthy eating) and each meal provides the appropriate balanced nutrition for children. The law is so strict regarding the healthy and also the hygienic points of view.  Children walk into a restaurant looking like area, the “Cantine” and are to eat sitting like descent human beings at a table, using cutlery too. Not hands like monkeys do!!!  They have to eat all that’s been served to them before they can go outside and play. Those are the rules.  The meals have a cold (freshly made) starter, a hot main meal and some dairy dessert or fruit. All is either refrigerated correctly or cooked freshly every morning. Every day the menu is different. One same menu for everybody. It respects the food allergies of course but the best part is that all children learn to eat everything, no peer pressure, they’re all in the same boat and all of them eat the green stuff too!  Hurray!

Imagine:  no packaging  (eco friendly), no worries for the parents ( easy peasy, no wasting money in individual wrappings (financially friendly because the costs are being brought right down because we’re talking huge quantities here…)

win win win…

Here, lunch boxes have to comply with the food allergies of other students in the school and also has to be able to cope with the hight temperatures of the country. The poor children have to carry their school bags and a little lunch box with heavy ice blocks to preserve the food from starting to go bad.

Then children have to eat from their lunch boxes, sitting on the concrete school yard , between bird shit and other unhygienic matters. Just like you would feed your dog, by putting the bowl  on the ground! Would you eat sitting on the pavement at home? Do teachers eat off the floor, outside?

NO WAY!!!!

How behind is this? Where are we back to? prehistoric times? middle ages? Aren’t we human beings, developed creatures, knowledgeable and educated? So why do we feed out children on the ground and treat them like animals? I just don’t get it. I never will and never will try.

It is so unfair on the child and also for the poor mother who day after day is facing the dilemma.

Ok, Junk food doesn’t require any preparation, and since it is tasty, the children are pretty happy eating that.  Especially since all their peers eat the same crap. If you send your child with a real yoghurt instead of yoghurt balls, you can make sure that after a few days the yoghurt will end up in the bin or still warming up in the lunch box when the child returns to you. Peer pressure.

What is wrong with this system? Everything. Everything is wrong with it. How do you educate young children? Oh well, just treat them like dogs, let them eat off the floor and then lecture them for hours every week on manners and respect and all that is humanely common sense to us adults (some of us anyway!! lol)

No wonder this is the fattest nation in the world! Look at the eating habits this country has!

Most mums don’t seem to cook much here. Take away does cook for you but it’s all to greasy and salty. It kills the taste buds among other important elements in our body.

Mums don’t eat at lunch time. Or rarely…   Everywhere I go and it is lunch time, I can see my friends giving lunch boxes out to the children but what do they have for themselves? Nothing! Nothing at all. They sip sugary coffee or tea instead and then wonder why they are so fat!! lol.

Ladies, you want to drop kgs? Start eating!

Lead by example and show your children good healthy eating habits. Feed yourself.

If you’re to slack to make a sandwich (which I am occasionally) or run out of time for whatever reason (that’s also my case most of the time), then wash up some carrots, fruit, tomatoes celery sticks, apples, throw a yoghurt or two with ice blocks in the esky (and please remember th spoons!  don’t do what I do. lol)…

All healthy and raw vegies don’t take much time to wash up and throw in a box. You can bulk wash for the whole family. And then you all sit somewhere, with your picnic, together and share ideas and stories about your morning or day across the food. Make it interesting so the children stay and forget they’re eating healthy stuff. No need for greasy sauces either. They’re all made with sugar in them! they are the worst of all: fat, sugar, salt… bad bad bad!!!

Don’t ever skip a meal, this is the easiest way to lose weight!!!

Each time you skip a meal thinking you’ve lost a few kilojoules, your body starts worrying about the next time it will get fuel and starts stocking food.  So what you need to do is reassure your body by eating at every meal, and, at almost the same time everyday. Then , you won’t be starving all the time and thinking about food every time you pass the kitchen (and open the fridge without thinking= this is such a bad habit!) or walk around the shops, your body will know it’s going to be fed properly at the same time everyday so it uses the energy as it comes instead of stocking it up just in case it misses the next meal.

And most of all, ladies, mothers out there in the world, please, for the sake of your children,

DO STOP FEEDING CHIPS (or flavoured crackers) TO BABIES, TODDLERS AND CHILDREN !!!! PLEASE.

It is criminal. Those poor little angels need proper food, remember they are building flesh, skin, muscles, neurones and all!!! Chips have nothing in them for the little ones. It is fun junk food for you maybe but it is poison to them. Yes, poison. Why am I using such a strong word? Well, once again, you are creating  habit here, your are educating the taste buds too. So why not start fresh and give them the best opportunity? My first child saw a lolly for the first time she was 2 and 3 months.  A well intentioned and nice mother had put lolly bags in all the children’s school bags for her child’ s birthday. When my precious one saw that she went in her bag and fetched out the beautifully colourful and flavoured attractive destructive treats and asked me what it was. Poor thing watched the others shove them in their mouths and me, throwing them in the bin! Of course I spoke to her and explained they weren’t healthy things.  She trusted my judgement because I had always done the right thing by her. Now she is 10. She’d rather have a dried fruit than one of those hyper sugary and full of flavourings and colourings in them. I did let my children have them recently but they don’t like them. They taste like medicines to them, the flavours are so fake and far from reality! My youngest reckons the worst of all are those labelled strawberry flavoured!   lol

My children never suffered from not having lollies, chips, chocolate, colourful cup cakes  or other disgusting junk food at birthday parties because it’s always been like this in our family. They didn’t know what they were missing out on because I had never let them taste those. If I had, I would have had to struggle at the supermarket counter, like all these poor parents who have toddlers throwing tantrums because they want to buy lollies. My children never even asked, they probably didn’t even see them, their interests where elsewhere. I created a good habit by not ever buying at the counter while in the queue. They’ve never been crossed with me because I didn’t buy today. Because we never do anyway.  Being bored while waiting doesn’t give you the excuse to succumb and buy what the shop keeper has cleverly put here, in front of you, to tempt you and make more money from your weakness.  You don’t have to buy that, you don’t need it, do you?  You have to teach that to your children now, because that’s where the danger is: habit.

The first time I’ve bought lollies was when my eldest was 9 and little one was 8. We were queuing at the chemist and there was a rack of organic honey lollies. I asked my oldest to grab a packet. She knew what it was by that age but didn’t understand why I’d ask her that.  The faces they were both pulling… lol not really shocked but quite thrown out really.

Now this is one and a half-year ago. The packet is still in the fridge! Occasionally we have one each. we appreciate it.

I guess, what I am saying is that you can do it. If I can, you can. Start little: don’t give food to your baby when it cries. I’m not talking about breast-feeding here obviously, I am talking solid food. If you’re pushing the pram/stroller, driving around, at the park or with friends… and baby is not happy, don’t calm her/him with food (unless it is meal time of course). Why not? Once again, because you are creating bad habits. You are teaching to associate food to comfort.

Baby is not happy, he/she cries. Response= food.  Later on, when big babies (us adults) have a problem, are not happy, are stressed or simply feeling sad, we will crawl back to old habits, comforting habits from our early carefree years= eat junk when you’re feeling depressed and you’ll feel better.

NO !!!

Do something else instead.

Remember: the earlier you do that, the easier it will be and the sooner it will become  easier.

Read a book to the baby, pick him/her up for a cuddle, talk to him/her, show him/her something interesting that will take his/her mind off.  Don’t be scared to be rude to your friends or people around, you’re educating a human being here, this is a top priority job, you might save your child from obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, metabolic syndrome,  and more!

Childhood obesity causes liver, lung, heart and musculoskeletal complications as well as psychological ones. Grass root efforts at changing urban planning, legislation, and school practices need to be employed to help stem the tide of obesity. Lifestyle change is the most effective treatment, but the hardest to implement. As a result of higher childhood obesity rates, more and more adolescents are subjecting themselves to gastric banding.
http://www.obesityinamerica.org/understandingObesity/diseases.cfm

You’re the only one who can save your child.

Do not tell me about hereditary body types. It may be true but that is a very poor excuse. Even with bad genes we can still look good if we put the correct effort into it. Even people with good genes can become obese or unhealthy.

Find the strength within yourself to start today

and please drop me a line when you start feeling good about yourself.

Can you change your eating habits and give a chance to your children?

You can break the chain of bad eating habits right now.

YOU
