There is a new ebook called First Bites: How to instill healthy eating habits during your baby's first year by Hillary Kimes Bernstein. How I wish I had this book when my kids were this young. Many times we want our kids to eat healthier but don't know how to start and this book shows you how to do just that! It’s divided into three sections: for parents of newborns, infants, and toddlers. Read what stage applies to your family. Of course, the earlier the healthy start the better, but it’s never too late to make a difference.
I love how Hillary teaches you in this book but doesn't come off like she is preaching to you! There are so many food wars online and in real life and this book doesn't make you feel like you are a failure if you have made certain choices. She clearly wants to teach you what she has learned and wants to share her knowledge of what has worked for her as a mom. She also has proof that starting young with healthy food works. Her two children love all kinds of food and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables so she is someone we can learn from!
With twenty-seven chapters, First Bites will help expectant and new moms understand:
- How breastfeeding and formula feeding are so different;
- Why making your own baby food with an easy recipe is healthier than store-bought baby food;
- When certain solid baby foods can be introduced;
- What common – and preventable – food choices are harmful to children; and
- What the Bible has to say about feeding babies.
Filled with understandable explanations of scientific research, practical solutions, and lots of stories from real-life moms, First Bites is a fantastic resource for new moms who simply don’t have the time to do all of the research by themselves but want their babies to reap the rewards of a healthier start.
You can buy the book here on her website. It is only $9.99!
