As the girlfriend of the hungriest man on the planet, I’m always looking for quick snacks and post workout nutrients. I’ve been known to house almonds and dried fruit in my glove box, coconut butter in my purse, and ground bison ready to eat in the fridge at all times. As a nutritionally driven doctor, real nutrient dense food is critical to daily life. Since I refuse to put processed food, artificial sugar, or grains in my body, most packaged foods are “off limits” to my routine.
Recently, I came across Plum Organics. This convenient snack is designed for babies and tots to help in the transition from liquid to solid foods. Plum Organics offer a variety of recipes. There is single or multiple fruit options, and veggies combinations. There are also oatmeal and granola options, as well.
For recent mothers, my advice is to start feeding their child by first introducing fruits and vegetables. Experimenting with real fruits and vegetables should take place towards the end of the first year. It’s important to introduce new food one at a time. Watch your baby. Know his/her habits. That way you know their behavior associated with certain foods. If you decide to introduce grains in your child’s life, wait to do this last. This will give your baby’s gut time to develop and his/her digestive system to mature.
Plum Organics gives busy moms a convenient snack that is made from real fruit and veggies. In your child’s first of year of life, it is critical to keep them from harmful toxins. Feed them real food. Period.
