Provide optimal nutrition for your baby
Whole foods for a healthy baby
Once your baby is ready to venture into the world of solid food, a whole new phase begins for your family. Providing the best nutrition possible is crucial to our children’s growth and development and a key factor in their lifelong wellbeing and happiness. Teaching our children to enjoy and desire a whole foods diet rich in nutrients and flavor, one that will keep them at their optimal weight and in top condition throughout their life, is attainable, and is perhaps the greatest gift we can give our children. Many of us, however, don’t know where to start. Our grocery stores are filled with refined, lifeless food full of chemicals. Offering foods free of artificial colors, preservatives, sweeteners, flavors, and hydrogenated oils is a great first step. However, you can go even further by offering your child a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, dairy, and healthy fats. Top nutrition and enhanced flavor bring powerful health benefits as well as a subtle sense of well-being. These rewards are easily achievable and benefit the entire family. The truth is, babies and children can eat the same foods their parents eat. With the addition to your kitchen of an inexpensive manual food grinder, you can serve your baby virtually anything you serve yourselves. So tie that apron on, take a deep breath, and dive in.
