  Eat your local rice. For starters, it’s medium and not high on the glycaemic index. It also has the resistant starch that helps the gut bacteria and will be one of the first weaning foods for your baby. T3 can be a tiring phase and a test of patience, literally. On the one hand, you want to let it all go, on the other, you are constantly aware that once you do let go, nothing will ever be the same again.

In the age of celebrity dieticians, where one is never sure whether the dietician herself is a celebrity or she caters only to celebrities, Rujuta Diwekar is approachable, both in person, in the way she writes, and in what she suggests we eat. Much like Michael Pollan, who boils it down to: ‘Eat food, not too much, mostly plants’, making it both commonsensical and easy, Rujuta’s approach to food is simple: eat what your grandmother cooked. Unfortunately, in both cases, we’ve lost touch with what food is (chips?), how paati cooked (cake?), and how much we should eat.

So intuitive eating is simply too much to expect from us — a generation so distant from nature and all that’s natural, that a packaged ragi snack filled with vanilla seems healthy. The obesogenic environment has taken over our lives and our plates. Thankfully, Rujuta spells it out in her book, Notes for Healthy Kids (Westland Publications). First, though, she takes us through ‘The Bigger Picture’, the first segment of the book that explains the context of food. She frequently references the EU’s I.Family project, an eating-centric study to help European citizens understand how nutrition-related diseases (obesity ...
