An article in a recent Scientific American magazine revealed that an increasing number of scientists and physicians wonder if our propensity for unhealthy, obesity-inducing eating might be tied to the food choices made during our first weeks and months of life?

The article went on to say that the latest research indicates that what we learn to like as babies paves the way for what we eat as adults. If true, we might be able to tackle the obesity epidemic in a new and more promising way, one that starts with the very first spoonful.

Isn’t this like a lot of things we read in scientific papers? It often turns out that what is obvious and logical about what we should do to ourselves we seem to lose sight of until some scientist finds evidence for the pursuit of the obvious once more!

If we’re spending so much effort on cleaning up our air and our water and our land so that we can “live clean”, why do so many people not follow that through to what they eat?

Deep down, we all know that we really are what we eat.

Starting your baby on organic baby formula, gives your little ones a pure start to life. It also prepares babies’ palettes to accept nutritious food that is not high in salt and sugar.

The good news for parents is it’s not so hard to start your children off with good eating habits. It just takes a little time and effort to understand the food choices available and learn how to identify the healthiest products possible for growing little bodies.

 
Tips for parents:

1)   Always check the nutritional information on the back of packaging, look for sodium and sugars and saturated fats

2)   Ensure your child has a varied diet filled with all five food groups (age dependent)

3) Consider organic produce as the best choice for avoiding harmful nasties like pesticides, hormones, additives etc

4) Keep portion sizes small – remember our kids don’t need eat as much as adults, resist the temptation to oversize

5) Keep a food routine (age appropriate)-3 balanced meals, 1 morning tea and 1 afternoon tea

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
