Giving your baby good nutrition is vital for their future health. Being aware of the nutrients baby needs to support his or her rapid growth and development is important from conception right through to the time baby hits the wonderful world of solids. For parents of babies raised as vegetarians, being mindful that baby is getting the nutrients they need from their foods is especially important.
Sometimes it is not as simple as offering the right foods. Infants and toddlers can have remarkably strong wills, and getting a picky toddler to eat what is best for them can sometimes be more of a struggle than it needs to be. There are also problems such as reflux, which can be distressing for both baby and parents alike.
While at times it might seem a lot to think about, having a happy, vital baby more than repays the time spent ensuring that get the very best foods.
