- When it comes to your baby’s diet, don’t skip the meat on your baby’s plate. We know that you sometimes have your whole baby on a plate, but when he/she is old enough to eat, the best thing is to feed a balanced diet that includes a variety of whole foods. Take the time to prepare vegetables and fruits for your baby so that your baby gets the most out of them. 8. If you’re concerned about your baby eating too much, don’t be afraid to start making decisions about your baby’s foods. Take things that bother you (high calorie or fat content, in our case), and think about what they are that your baby might be enjoying. 9. Talk to your doctor about how much you are eating to prevent over-eating your baby. Let your doctor know your baby’s age, weight, and blood pressure. He or she will tell you how much weight your baby should have, but if you just think about how much food you are putting in your body, you may come up with too much! 10. Once you understand what foods are best for your baby, look at your diet and decide what the worst-case scenario may involve. Are you over-feeding, or should you continue to try to lose weight? Be honest about whether there are foods that are okay to eat and still good for your baby. For example: is an all-you-can-eat pasta dish OK for your baby or a rice and beans dish for her? Other issues to be aware of before you get pregnant: Whether you are overweight or underweight, what your baby likes (soft food like raw or canned are OK). For those who lean or are on a low-calorie diet, what foods are acceptable for children? Are any foods for your child too unhealthy? If you are trying to raise a baby, do your research first to see what is best for you as both mother and non-mother!
“She’s ready to eat and ready to learn. She’s not getting too many of the things that we are looking for. That’s not why it is so hard – it comes down to the quality of the food that she is eating and the amount that she is eating.”
“So many different kinds of foods are out there for her. I don’t think she is growing up healthy in any kind of a healthy way.”
This is what we call “the baby diet”. Our Baby Diet is a balanced and nutritious diet that promotes well-being for your baby.
