NPA have steered away from some of the controversy about the Paleo diet, but we have serious concerns about the proposed new Paleo book promoted to families with young children and babies. The Dietitians Association of Australia has released a statement
about the new book and the potential danger that it might pose to infants and young children. The CEO of the Dietitians Association of Australia has also spoken about this issue on ABC National Radio
. NPA understand that the book has been withdrawn by the publisher but that it is likely to be digitally self published. We hope that the concerns raised by numerous public health bodies will be addressed when it is released.
