Everything you need to know about feeding your child well
We are living in the first age in modern history in which we as parents can expect to have longer lifespans than our children. The indicators are clear: our nation’s children are in a health crisis and much of the problem can be directly linked to what and how we are feeding them. Now more than ever it is vital to provide new parents with clear, practical nutritional information and guidelines that can help them set their children up for a lifetime of healthy eating.
Jeannette Bessinger and Tracee Yablon-Brenner, the Real Food Moms, have taken up this challenge with their books:
Great Expectations: Best Food for Your Baby and Toddler
From First Foods to Meals Your Child Will Love
Food is a vital, essential part of life. The way a baby is nursed and the types of foods provided in the critical first years can affect a child’s eating preferences and habits for a lifetime. More than a child’s main fuel, food can help newborns double in size, energize developing limbs, and have more protective power than medicines to strengthen a young immune system.
