Many of today’s parents are giving their babies fresh baby food, either made at home or purchased from retailers offering farm-to-table goodness for the under-two set. Why is fresher better? Here are just a few of the reasons so many parents – and babies – are going gaga over fresh food:
Be Your Own Quality Control Specialist
When you make your own baby food – or can easily read the real, simple ingredients on the label – you know exactly what you’re giving to your child. No one needs mysteries at meal time!
Variety is the Spice of Life
Few people would accuse commercial baby food of being either flavorful or offering much variety. That is exactly what freshly-prepared food does, though. By being freshly-made and stored in short-term methods, it allows creators to add more ingredients that might be too perishable for traditional baby food storage modes – and more variety to dinnertime for the littlest member of your family.
Many children have food allergies, and avoiding them in commercially marketed, highly-processed foods can be a nightmare. Choosing fresh food with simple ingredients – or preparing it yourself – can minimize the exposure to those allergens and make eating a pleasant experience for everyone at meal time.
Fresh Tastes Better!
When it comes right down to it, most people would agree that homemade food just tastes better. That’s exactly the advantage you offer your baby with freshly-prepared foods: fresh food, simply prepared, without the preservatives and months of sitting on a shelf that commercial foods bring to the table. While your baby may not be able to tell you that their food tastes better when it’s fresh, you’ll know by the way they gobble it up.
If you’re ready to get in on the fresh baby food trend, consult with your pediatrician about making your own baby food, or find a Washinton, DC-based fresh baby food service that delivers right to your door. Either way, you’ll be giving your baby everything they want and need – and nothing you don’t!
