Baby Food: Less Sugar, More Veges

Baby Food: Less Sugar, More Veges

We thought you'd find this BBC article interesting. A recent report from child health experts in the UK determined that the amount of sugar in baby food should be restricted - that parents should give their young children more bitter vegetables, like broccoli and spinach, to stop them developing a sweet tooth.

It makes interesting reading and has information that we think a lot of parents are perhaps not aware of - that a lot of first food products often contain a high proportion of fruit or sweet-tasting vegetables. 

It's the reason why we suggest The Baby Pantry Pure Apple is more of a tasty treat, rather than an actual meal.  Less can be more when it comes to sweeter tastes and when it comes to babies, EVERY meal matters! Research shows the first 1000 days of a child’s life are crucial to their future well-being and development. Why not start as you mean to continue, we say!

My grandfather was a great gardener, my Dad had a massive garden and my husband loved growing and harvesting untold vegetables.  Peas, peppers, beans, lettuces, parsnips, potatoes, tomatoes and beetroot – they all arrived in my kitchen in bulk and shamefully, these gardening efforts weren’t always appreciated when a day of tennis or catching up with friends was suddenly replaced by a day of blanching, soup making, freezing or pickling vegetables.
