Kids weren’t born wanting processed food..they were taught to want it!

As parent we have the ability to train our kids to either love fresh wholesome foods that are good for them or overly processed junk foods that have the potential to harm them, we train them either way.

you-learned-to-eat-it

Contrary to popular belief there is no child born with a sweet tooth or detest for vegetables, they end up with the preferences cultivated by us parents over time.

Whatever eating habits our child ends up with good or bad is not accidental. Training start from the very first spoonful- give your baby the opportunity to sample what fresh taste like, if you can’t make yours we are always here to help – remember that your baby just like you will not like the taste, smell or look of 2 year old cooked purred food.

New study: Fresh, unprocessed baby foods tied to less allergy

New study supports what we have been preaching for decades.. Fresh unprocessed food is best not only for adults but especially for babies. It is sad that as a society we have been made to believe that feeding babies overly processed 2 years old cooked food would supply the same high quality nutrients derived from freshly made foods, the illusion of  ‘healthy’ eating is a huge problem that is being overlooked. ‘We are truly what we eat and that includes our babies’
