Sounds like a good book, Barb. Yes, it takes more than a good diet - it takes a superb one. Price found that among traditional peoples all over the world, the groups themselves were already eating a 100% unprocessed diet, but they fed even more super nutrient-dense foods to the men and women prior to conception, and to the pregnant and nursing women. And (nearly? I don't remember if there were exceptions) all spaced 2.5 - 3.5 years apart, which is the biological norm when following ecological breastfeeding.

I've been looking for evidence that nutrition *after* birth could help improve facial structure, but I haven't seen anything but one anecdotal story so far. I don't know if there's any hope for the very weak facial structure all but the oldest have or not.
I'm seeing fat little ones all over the place now. So, so sad.
