My Book:

I am a nanny who has worked for years to teach parents the benefits of providing organic nutrition and a nurturing environment to their children and have come to be considered part of the family to many high-profile celebrities and other wonderful moms and dads. Through a desire to share my expertise with a wider audience, I have partnered with New York Times bestselling author Eve Adamson and recently completed my first book The Organic Nanny's Guide to Raising Healthy Kids: Reclaim a Natural Diet and Lifestyle for Your Child Published by Perseus Books a leading publisher of non-fiction books, publishing distinctive imprints: Da Capo Press.

As a "Mary Poppins for the new millennium," I have such a passion for helping parents and giving them the information they need to keep their kids healthy and strong. And, as they pass knowledge on to their children, I believe they will be raising a generation that is calmer, happier, smarter, more eco-conscious, and more compassionate than those who preceded them. The ability to create this positive change is natural to a parent's intuition-I just want our moms and dads to trust themselves again.

Throughout the pages of my book, I will offer insight into the power that parents already have to reclaim a healthy lifestyle for their kids, including advice on household cleaning products, green food choices, cosmetics, furnishings, and even toys. My goal is to heal our families and, in turn, take steps to heal our planet. I have designed the chapters to approach this idea in a way that is both informative and inspiring, and I hope entertaining as well.

With thanks and blessings,

Barbara Rodriguez

2- I think it's BRILLIANT! I LOVE IT!

I'll support you in whatever way I can. In fact, we should do an audio interview with you on Life Force Families when it's best timed for your release.

Organic Nanny will save more kids and families than you can imagine! Its going to be a big hit that will penetrate in a real way! I love that this is suffused with your Cuban grandmother's knowledge -- for me that's one of the biggest selling points! So beautiful!

3-''Coming from the perspective as a mother and diet coach, I can't tell you how many children who are my children's friends who are literally starving their children nutritionally resulting in lack of development, too much development (in the case of hormone-laden products,) and/or behavior problems. And, this is on the Upper East Side of New York City- one of most affluent areas in the United States! !Bravo for you writing this book!''

5-Barbara has an innate sense and contagious passion for balanced, holistic living. As a mother and healthy-living advocate, I've seen how these qualities spark tremendous change. And while not everyone can hire the Organic Nanny (there is only one of her), everyone can benefit from her book.

My Favorite Pediatrician:

6- 'Barbara Rodriguez encourages parents to listen to their own intuition, nurturing instead of parenting on automatic pilot, feeding children healthy organic food...and lots of love. In her gentle and nurturing way, Barbara Rodriguez guides parents to validate their children and to optimize their physical and mental development. I encourage anyone interested in a more natural, child-respectful, family-centered way of parenting to read and take to heart this book and its principles. The Organic Nanny understands the heart of a child, and with her guidance, so can you."

''Most parents recognize the need to encourage healthy eating habits in their children and children raised on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes grow up to be slimmer and healthier and even live longer than their meat-eating friends. The Organic Nanny gives you everything you need to make creating a healthy child and household a reality. May Barbara's many years of experience and passion for working with children inspire you and your children on this healthful journey.''

"Barbara's love for children is a driving force. She has witnessed firsthand the positive effects of a loving connection, and the devastating effects of rejection and insecurity. Ironically our society usually equates these problems with poverty and violence, but her observations bring to light the challenges in even the most affluent and educated parents. Her story is so powerful and her message is ultimately one of deep love and empathy for the children she has been so blessed to meet and nurture. My hope is that this book will be a turning point for many families who want to become more conscientious in the decisions they make about who cares for their children and the critical importance of consistent, loving care in the early life of any child."

To Whom it May Concern:

I first met Barbara Rodriguez in 2002 through Kenny Loggins. She had recently moved to Nashville with her husband Chris, and Kenny was hoping to introduce her to some wives of local musicians and songwriters. My husband Gary is a songwriter and record producer, and the fact that I had co-founded a non-profit parenting organization, Attachment Parenting International (API), gave us another important connection: our love of children and advocating for their need for loving, supportive parenting.

When Lysa Parker and I founded API we truly wanted to 'save the world' through a message of non-violent, loving parenting methods. We were inspired by Ghandi's words: "If we are to reach real peace in this world...we shall have to begin with children." And the way to do this is through our example, treating our children with respect, empathy, and loving guidance.

Barbara's love for children is a driving force ~ she has witnessed firsthand the positive effects of loving connection, and the devastating effects of rejection and insecurity. Ironically our society usually equates these problems with poverty and violence, but her observations bring to light the challenges in even the most affluent and educated classification of parents.

Her story is so powerful and her message is ultimately one of deep love and empathy for the children she has been so blessed to meet and nurture. My hope is that this book will be a turning point for many families; to be very conscious in the decisions they make about who cares for their children and the critical importance of consistent, loving care in the early life of any child.
