Eight mistakes for feeding toddlers
Some suggestions in reaction to the arsenic-in-rice reports lately from Super Baby Food.
(Thanks for the heads up, @Help 4 New Moms / It Gets Easier! And Other Lies We Tell New Mothers!)
I've seen tons of back-to-school lunch ideas lately, but today we're looking for lunch (and all meal) ideas for the little ones!
Specifically, a friend is looking for some ideas for her 10-month old who is completely on table food. She goes to a (really great and very willing!) sitter's house all day and need some variety. Ideas?
Ruth Yaron’s Super Baby Food has been featured on ABC’s Good Morning America, Martha Stewart, and countless kitchen counters and bookshelves in households with babies!
There are so many sources for information, guidelines, and recipes for feeding your growing baby, but Super Baby Food gives it to you all in one place.
And if preparation, storage, money-saving tips, and enough recipes to try a different one every day of the year, isn’t enough for you, there is SO much more! Yaron doesn’t stop with pureed baby foods; there are recipes that are appropriate for toddlers (and good enough to serve at an adult cocktail party!). On top of that, there are over 50 pages of fun—ideas, recipes, and tips for crafts, party planning, homemade chalk and dough, and even some goo (what kids won’t like goo?!).
With a reference section that details baby nutrition, conversions, allergen alerts, and a recipe index, you will not be left guessing!
We have teamed up with Claudine Wolk of Help 4 New Moms, and the publishers of Super Baby Food to offer one reader a copy! Visit the Super Baby Food site, then come back here and leave a comment with the name of one of the foods in the background of the page, the age of your baby, and your email address. We’ll choose a winner at random on Friday, February 10th.
Oookkk, so I promised a Baby Food book review and giveaway this week, didn't I? Sorry about that, sometimes my actual *paying* job gets in the way! This time I *promise* promise to have it up by Monday!!
_From a friend-- "Advice needed. Baby is 6 months old and I started her on cereal and sweet potatoes. She has been fussy, screaming right before she poops and pooping five times per day instead of once. None of my other kids did this. Stopped the food today after a week and went back to breastfeeding only and she is back to her happy self. Not sure where to go from here..." Help?
With a love of children and a passion for reading and writing, Kelly decided to share her experiences with others through the pages of the Crib Notes book and site.
