Welcome to Feeding the Babe! This is the beginning of the chronicles of the challenges of feeding our children. As a dietitian and someone who has spent the better part of the last decade studying food and eating, one would think that there would be no issues. On the contrary, I have battled with a relatively picky eater over the past four years and now I have a toddler who is barely on the growth chart for her weight. (Her pediatrician’s issue, not mine.) In other words, no one is safe. Keeping your children, and yourself, well-fed and healthy is a daunting task no matter your belief system, economic status or education level. So what I hope to accomplish here is provide a resource of good, current information on family nutrition and an outlet for both myself and others on feeding those we love the most.
