Pete Evans is an Australian chef, restauranteur, TV personality, and author of multiple cookbooks – with his most recent publication being ‘Bubba Yum Yum‘ – a collaboration between Pete himself, Charlotte Carr, and Helen Padarin. Bubba Yum Yum explores the Paleo diet for new mums, babies, and toddlers and is packed full of nourishing recipes and natural remedies. But what it (and Pete) seems to have earned a notorious reputation for, even before publication, is the controversial use of bone broth within the baby formula recipe ‘Happy Tummy Brew’.
Being a mother of three and raising my youngest on a fully Paleo diet I began to empathise with the scrutiny and misunderstanding that Pete was being subjected to within the media. I decided to contact Pete’s PR and request an interview. I wanted to further understand the fears and prejudice being projected toward the book and Pete, but I also wondered if Pete could help those of us raising our children Paleo on how to cope with the battles that we face day-to-day and how we can dispel the myths and stigma surrounding the Paleo diet in relation to it being harmful to children. As you can imagine I was absolutely elated when I received the news that Pete was happy to answer my questions.
