Raising Superheroes by Tim Noakes


The Real Meal Team (Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot and Bridget Surtees) has just released Raising Superheroes. This is a revolutionary way to feed children, not to be misunderstood as a no-carb diet book, but rather as advocating low sugar, low refined carbohydrate meals. His book is simply jam(sugarfree!)-packed with recipes for different age groups. There is also a really handy section on Kitchen Staples with more recipes and tips for stocking your kitchen with the basics – like stocks for soups, sauces and minces for freezing and handy future use.

Following the hue and cry of a comment taken out of context on Twitter about weaning babies, Noakes has been much in the media lately. But paging through both these books, I’m struck with the sheer ‘good sense’ of what they advocate. Neither is necessarily better, but both are a great source of information and new recipe material.

The Real Meal Revolution was all about taking on the global obesity epidemic with a revolutionary approach to eating; it challenged ingrained beliefs, it sold (and still sells) in record-breaking numbers throughout South Africa, and it changed people’s lives. With Raising Superheroes the authors have now set out to revolutionise the way we feed our children. It’s time, they believe, to challenge the kids’ food industry and our old assumptions; it’s time to give our children the best nutrition possible, and the best start in life. Raising Superheroes is not a Banting cookbook, and it doesn’t offer no-carb eating for kids. But – in advocating low-sugar, low-refined-carb, “real” food eating – it is the Real Meal Revolution’s next step towards changing the world. (There will be more!)
