Tom is one of the very few boys in the Netherlands who eats raw. The Raw Food Diet originated in the United States. It requires all food to be eaten as nature intended it – not fried, cooked or heated in any way. This means that Tom can’t eat bread, meat, fish or dairy products. What does he eat then?
Tom has been living on fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds for five years. His mother is convinced that eating raw is healthier. She contends that millions of years ago, people also ate raw. Tom is 10 years old and lives in Amsterdam, a city where you can eat just about anything. His friends are allowed to eat bread and even French fries, but Tom doesn’t complain. Raw is about a boy who is forced to be different.
