The Mediterranean Diet: why do we find this trend kind of funny?

You've probably heard that the Mediterranean diet can make your heart healthier, protect against cancer and even help you live longer.

You’ve also probably heard that it is a fabulous pick for babies, toddlers and kids also. Packed with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, fish and healthy fats, a Mediterranean diet provides nutrients that support optimal growth and development and also promote a healthy weight.

Moreover, and this is the most important point here: beyond its balanced and diverse nutritional value, the Mediterranean Diet is not a weight loss or management program. It is an actual way of life. And if you do not believe us, you may be more convinced if some organisation like the UNESCO tells you as such…. Well they do! The Mediterranean Diet was inscribed in 2013 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Now you have it! And why does it make us kind of laugh? Well because we are two food loving ladies who grew up with it in our respective Provence and Puglia. It has always been our way of life, shaping up our lifelong eating habits since we were born. The only revelation for us was that we wrongly assumed that everyone else was eating in the same way.

The balance and diversity of the Mediterranean Diet is RATATOUïE’s nutritional motto. We strongly believe we should teach our children to expect variety from the onset of weaning. We are here to help you achieve this diversity in colours, flavours, scents and textures and through it instil lifelong healthy eating habits into your little ones. And we promise: you don't need to be Yotam Ottolenghi to be a pro at it!

Next time, we’ll talk about other elements fundamental to this Mediterranean Diet… stay tuned!
