baby food & health links

At Simple baby foods we believe that education is important when parents are making weaning decisions. We are here to shine a light on research.

at SIMPLE we take research about the way kids eat seriously. here are some links to the research that fuels our passion:

"With approximately two-thirds of the commercial baby foods classified as too sweet, continued exposure to these foods in early infancy could lead children to lean toward sweeter foods with age and potentially cause dental decay."

"In order to instill healthy eating habits in children, it is critical to expose infants (older than six months of age), toddlers, and preschoolers to the taste and texture of a variety of nutritious foods, including fruits, vegetables and whole grains."

"Awareness of this normal course of food acceptance is important because approximately one quarter of parents with infants and toddlers prematurely drew conclusions about their child's preference for foods after two or fewer exposures"

How the commercial baby food industry "bulks" their food up.
