Freshly revised and updated to include incredible full-color photography, Super Nutrition for Babies, Revised Edition, features new recipes and the latest nutritional recommendations.
Learn exactly “when, how, why, and what” to feed your baby in this invaluable guide to nutrition for every stage of your child’s growth. Authors Katherine Erlich, MD, and Kelly Genzlinger, CNC, note that the Western diet is lacking in the essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fatty acids required for healthy development, and they recommend a focus on nutrient-rich foods and the elimination of refined and processed foods from both mother and baby’s diet.
Super Nutrition for Babies offers many recipes to help you fulfill the authors’ nutritional recommendations, but it’s more than just a list of healthy recipes for baby; it’s full of tips, tricks, and ideas for making healthy meals. Their nutritional plan—the “Super Nutrition Baby Feeding Program”—addresses the unique nutrient needs for growing babies. And with their four pillars of Super Nutrition and the Super Nutrition food categories, you’ll get a convenient way to remember how to choose the healthiest foods possible for your bundle of joy.
Throughout the chapters outlining different stages of baby’s development, you’ll learn how your meal choices affect your growing child. Find out when and how to address pertinent issues, such as nursing dietary guidelines, food allergies, reducing exposure to toxins, dental care, supplements for mom and baby, and much more.
From Amazon Customer Reviews:
“I’m a very health-conscious person and a first-time mom. This book was VERY helpful in deciding on a feeding plan for my son. The information in here just confirms what I’ve felt PLUS given me more to go by. DO NOT FEED YOUR BABY SOLIDS until you read this book and take their advice.”
“In order to understand the message this book is sending, one must understand nutrition and has been studying nutrition for as long as I have. 5 years now. I highly recommend this book to everyone who has an open mind to how our bodies work. Most pediatricians receive a crash course in nutrition and are paid to promote foods that are “good for baby.” When my child is old enough for solids I will be using the ideas and recipes in this book. I believe these methods and foods will help my child’s immune system and development very well.” —Kendra Y. Cyr
“I recommend this book on a near-daily basis! You want to know what’s wrong with America? Look at our “nutrition”! This books shows you just how baby should eat—and it’s not found on the baby aisle in most stores! This book is the ultimate nutrition book for new moms/dads, caretakers, and the health-conscious. Get it for your next baby shower gift! Our babies depend on us for health and nutrition for the first years. Shouldn’t we offer them the best?”
“As a doctor, I find this book one of the best, most complete sources of information for parents who are approaching the introduction of food for their babies. Most books talk of starting infants off with a grain-based cereal as their first foods. I could not disagree more. It has been my experience that children who are introduced to chemical-free sources of fats, protein, fruits and vegetables FIRST are healthier, have less illness and meet their developmental milestones with greater vigor. For parents who have been told that SOY based formulas is a better choice for their baby, this is a MUST READ. Soy is a hormone disruptor, that will affect the growth and development of your child both physically and mentally. The book talks about this and quotes research studies that show soy-fed babies have lower IQs. If you are planning to have a baby, have a baby or even have a toddler this book will provide you with a wealth of knowledge that will give your child the healthiest start at life.”
