Nutrition reference book

Details: A great resource is Paul Pitchford's Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition. It actually has a chapter specifically for children. A lot of Paul's stuff may be too hardcore for some (eg. some of his stuff borders on Buddhist philosophies, no heating of oil), but I feel he is the wisest nutrition guy out there.

Nutritional Value of Pig's Blood

Sushi: Nutrition, How much is too much

Details: It's because there is very little raw food in most people's diets (especially raw meat or fish), and, in raw food, many of the enzymes which help in digestion are intact. Sushi and sashimi, and raw fish in general, is, by most people, very very easily and gently digested. The pickled ginger is also an aid to digestion -- not just a tasty condiment.
