We all know parents want the best for their children, which is why Sprout Organic Baby Food’s mission is to provide better food products for children and the environment.
Below are some key points about feeding with which soon-to-be and new parents should get acquainted:
Did you know?
Flavor really makes a difference! Babies have thousands more taste buds at birth than adults, so parents should recognize that babies can appreciate flavor. Babies can use their first learning’s about food to develop a palate that will follow them to adulthood.
Babies’ familiarity with and preferences for foods can start even before solid foods, depending on the diet of a breastfeeding mother or if a child is primarily formula-fed.
The best way to encourage healthy eating habits is to begin with flavorful, nutritious foods for babies, starting with their first solids.
By the time kids enter school, their preferred eating habits are already established.
Using organic produce, legumes, poultry and meat helps reduce children’s exposure to pesticides, chemicals and antibiotics. Due to their smaller size and developing bodies, infants and children are more vulnerable.
If buying commercial baby food, that glass jars are not shatterproof and require longer cooking time (because of their heavy material), so flavor, color, and nutrients can dissipate. Sprout’s unique pouches rather preserve these and are bisphenol-A (BPA)-free, another safety benefit in children’s food storage which avoids hormone disrupters from entering the body.
Sprout Organic Baby Food offers this convenience to help parents meet their children’s nutritional goals without feeling like they are sacrificing. It was started by a well-known chef and father, Tyler Florence, whose focus is on enriching people’s lives through food. He does this by teaching about the origin and benefit of naturally delicious foods as he brings families to the table to enjoy meals together.
The future depends on children; they motivate all of us. Since we want the best for them, it is critical for parents to know that they can affect their baby’s health and environment while teaching them to appreciate cooking and enjoying food as a family.
