"Nourishing Our Children is an outstanding educational resource that I highly recommend every parent, teacher and individual interested in true health and nutrition to see. A well-organized and thorough examination of the incredible work and life-changing teachings of Dr. Weston A. Price, Nourishing Our Children is a most helpful resource for anyone looking for true guidance in the realm of nutrition. A careful attention to detail and a huge amount of work went into making this film a reality and it shows. As a nutritional therapist, I see day in and day out how necessary education is, and Nourishing Our Children is an invaluable resource in my practice. Many thanks to Sandrine and all who made this project come to life."

"I am so impressed with Nourishing Our Children. While I have been teaching these principles for years, never have I found a more easy-to-use, clear, and concise method to do so. This material is simply wonderful!
This past week my daughters and I hosted a week-long camp in our home for girls ages 12-18. I used Nourishing Our Children as the foundation of our daily nutrition class. The girls were mesmerized and amazed by what they learned, as was the other mother present! The presentation held their attention throughout, and sparked a keen interest in pursuing these nutritional principles in their own lives. Thank you, Sandrine and all of those involved in the Nourishing Our Children Campaign; well done indeed!"

"In my 15 years as a nutritionist, I have found few educational materials to be as excellent as Nourishing Our Children! It is key in helping educate my clients who may not want to read all the books I often recommend. The content is impeccably researched and cleverly presented with professional images and narration to keep clients entertained and emotionally engaged while they learn."
- Annika Rockwell, CN
"Nourishing Our Children is beautiful!!! I was very impressed by all the beautiful additional pictures that illustrate various concepts and help keep the audience engaged. I watched it with my (homeschooled) daughters today (ages 11, 10, and 8), and they enjoyed the it as well, and stayed interested and engaged virtually the whole time."

"Dear Sandrine, I am impressed by how clear, concise, and engaging the production is. What truly blew me away, however, was how much of the health problems my brother suffered from as a child were explained in Nourishing Our Children as issues with nourishment. Braces, brochitis, asthma, depression ... I constantly find myself referring to Nourishing Our Children when talking to others. I wish to my partner, family, friends, and larger community. That is why I am taking the time to say thank you for your generosity and your commitment. "

"Where to begin, to review such a fabulous resource, as Nourishing Our Children?! I was overjoyed to see how beautifully put together it was. While all truly great educational materials offer value in terms of educating oneself (or family, community, etc), certainly not all are engaging and entertaining to watch. Nourishing Our Children, however, is both engaging and entertaining - containing such invaluable material, and presented in such a way that it is easy to comprehend and gather insight from. The way in which Nourishing Our Children is presented allows for taking "steps", to incorporate lifestyle changes. For me, when I educate my clients on nutrition and other health aspects, I present lifestyle changes in terms of returning their bodies to a whole and healthy state. I absolutely *love* Nourishing Our Children!
I am thrilled with the layout of Nourishing Our Children - I am thrilled that my 2 older children, especially my 9 year old son, has expressed a desire to learn from it, and has viewed it with me, as well as on his own. Yes! Watching a movie beats listening to mom sometimes, right?!
I look forward to incorporating Nourishing Our Children as a study course into our homeschool curriculum arming all of my children with the desire and know-how, to truly nourish their bodies - and with the passion that I myself have for health, as well as the passion that clearly comes through Nourishing Our Children.
Sandrine, thank you so much for sharing your passion to help Nourish Our Children!
With much admiration for what you do and stand for."
