A baby’s first foods should be nutrient-focused and include healthy fats, quality meats and vegetables. Fat is essential for nutrient absorption, brain development, hormone regulation and building the immune system. Meat is not only totally digestible for babies, but it is a far more efficient source of protein than any other food we eat. Prioritizing meat, fat and vegetables over sugary fruits, beans and grains will help your baby’s energy and mood. Our baby Della sleeps through the night, rarely cries, hardly ever gets sick, will eat anything, and has healthy consistent stools. We believe this is largely because of how we feed her. We want all babies to grow up happy, healthy and strong, like Della!
