It is that time of the year again when we are all in frenzy with activities, preparing for Thanksgiving alongside Christmas shopping. It is cold outside and we have to bundle up the kid(s) from one activity to the next, while hoping they stay healthy. We turn to pay less attention to food when we are very much on the go and thus greatly increase the chances of a compromised immune system. As parents one thing we can all agree on is simply having our kids healthy at all times especially during the holiday season when families and friends all come together, we want to sit back and relax and not fret about anything else.
It is imperative that during this festive but cold season parents feed their babies food that incorporate the use of fresh herbs. Fresh organic herbs are wonderful allies for boosting the immune system.
All of Yummy Spoonfuls recipes are carefully planned by a registered pediatric dietician to provide our babies the building blocks they need at this very critical developmental stage.
Fresh organic herbs like fresh organic garlic, fresh organic ginger, fresh organic basil, fresh organic oregano etc are incorporated in all our Chunky Yummy (stages 3) meals.
Fresh organic garlic is an antibacterial, antibiotic, antifungal immune stimulant. Experts claim that adding fresh organic garlic to food helps prevent illness.
Fresh organic basil is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Fresh organic ginger is traditionally known for its soothing effects on an upset stomach.
Fresh organic oregano is not only a nutrient dense spice but it is also known for its potent anti-oxidant activity, as well as its anti-bacterial properties.
As childhood-obesity and childhood-diabetics rates in the United States continue to surge out of control, it is important that we take a hard look into the eating habits that we are teaching out kids. We need to start understanding the direct implication of the food we eat and the results we get and start believing in the adage that ‘you are what you eat’
As Einstein eloquently put it ‘you cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that existed when it was created’. Feed your babies with an intention to good health, make every tiny bite count. It is our responsibility as parents (since we are the decision makers) to feed our babies only that which is healthy, wholesome and needed to survive. Do not feed your bundle of joy ’empty nothings’
Why Organic is the best choice
Eating organic significantly reduces our children’s exposure to organophosphate pesticides.
Eating organic foods provides children with “dramatic and immediate” protection from exposure to two organophosphate pesticides that have been linked to harmful neurological effects in animals and humans. This is shown in a study funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency and published in the September 2005 issue of Environmental Health Perspective. The pesticides — malathion and chlorpyrifos — which have been restricted or banned for home use, are widely used on a variety of crops, and according to the annual survey by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Pesticides Data Program, residues of these organophosphate pesticides are still detected in common food items usually eaten by young children.

From our CEO & CYO (Chief Yummy Officer)
We have a son. He’s almost 4 and I almost died having him. It’s a long story that I won’t go into, but the circumstances around his conception and birth caused me to give him a name that means “Precious Gift from God”. As this Thanksgiving approaches it causes me to think of several of God’s gifts…our children, their health, and the bounty of the earth.
These 3 things were the impetus for my company. Yummy Spoonfuls is my life’s work, my expression of thanks to God. Providing every child the same access to the freshest nutritive delectable yummy foods my son eats. We are strong believers of the adage ‘you are what you eat’ our company uses fresh organic and when available locally grown foods to make tasty, healthy baby meals. In turn our customers have a simple option for feeding their babies organic food. This, in turn, keeps them healthy. For which we are all thankful.
Have a happy holiday and remember you can only harvest what you sow>
