Go Gourmet Baby!

Studies reveal that children who are fed diets of bland, tasteless food are more likely to have issues with weight. Unlike the jarred foods, homemade baby food is full of delicious fresh, wholesome flavor and adding herbs and spices is a great way to enhance this flavor.

Should I Start Cereal at 2 1/2 Months?

Dear Nutritionist,
My question is my daughter is 2½ months old. She is only eating breast milk (no formula). Well, people are trying to get me to feed my baby rice cereal but I read that if you start a baby on cereal to early it can cause allergies later on in life. Should I wait until she is 4 months or start her now. She weighs 13 pounds 3 ounces.

Perfect Papaya

Cold, fruit soups may seem a bit sophisticated for a toddler, but think again. They are perfect - sweet, healthy, and refreshing. Come to think of it, they are perfect for anyone on a hot summer day. Bring two spoons to the table with a bowl of this soup.
