Between the practicality of ready-to-eat baby food and all the responsibility to offer the best to their children, mothers seek information to balance the burden of motherhood . Yes, we know that mothering requires choices and, generally, they are filled with guilt.
But today we want to clarify everything about Nestlé’s industrialized baby food and help you decide whether to offer it or not, and at what times.
If you follow other food experts on social networks or other blogs, you may have seen some of them condemning the Nestlé baby food offer. But after all, are they harmful? What do you think?
Rule number 1: prefer fresh food
You see, we’re not even talking about whether the baby food is good or not. The point here is that offering fresh food is always the best option .
If you are at home and can offer “real food” to your child, know that this is the right way to go . That’s because fresh foods still conserve their nutrients because they haven’t gone through any kind of process.
The texture, the skin, the way to offer, everything is important in the Food Introduction .
Nestlé baby food are… OK!
Yes, it’s okay to offer industrialized baby food from time to time . During a walk, in the car, when the restaurant does not have a suitable option for the baby or in other specific situations, there is no problem in offering this type of baby food.
This post is not an advertorial and I’m not earning anything to say that, but I need to inform you that Nestlé’s baby food :
- has no preservatives;
- are well stored;
- it has no salt or sugar;
- are made with real food;
- it’s better than offering a cookie, for example.
in the food routine
There’s the big balcony. It’s okay to give industrialized baby food on a tour or trip , sporadically. But don’t make it a routine .
These baby food items are not meant to be offered daily in place of meals, so keep this in mind.
And even if you prepare baby food at home, take care to evolve the food texture little by little so that by the age of 1 your baby will already eat the family’s food.
It is very important that chewing is stimulated even for speech development . That’s why at home, prefer real food with different consistencies. It’s okay to make soups and purees, but also offer pieces of well-cooked food and gradually offer them as you eat them.
