I am just starting solid foods with my little boy. I have been giving him rice cereal and Gerber veggies, and am starting fruits. I feel like I don't really know what I'm doing though. I was thinking of getting a Magic Bullet so I could blend my own foods. Do you guys think that makes a very big difference vs. the Gerber food? Also what about proteins? When is that supposed to be okay?
ALSO...I am going to read a book I am really excited about called H0w to Get Your Kid to eat but not too much. It was highly recommended by my new sister in law who is a dietitian and is supposed to be a great book. It deals with feeding children from infants to teenagers. It's about helping children develop a good relationship with food. I think this is a profound topic especially taking into account the high numbers of childhood obesity, eating disorders and overall unhealthy culture that our kids will be facing. We owe it to our children to help them live their best lives and to be healthy. I will let you know more once I read it!
