Reduce the Purines: Avoid or severely limit the intake of food that are high in purines like animal products like organ meats, anchovies, beef, pork lamb, tuna, shrimp, lobster and scallops, limit or avoid alcohol especially beer, avoid or limit intake of foods sweetened with fructose corn syrup. Drink more fluids, eat more complex carbs, low fat dairy products, more of natural juices, eat more plant-based proteins.

Diet and gout: Tart cherry juice is effective; avoid organ meats; fatty meats and alcohol will aggravate gout. Avoid these. Also, drink at least 3 liters fluid per day - this may enhance uric acid excretion - and if you incline your diet successfully to mostly whole grain, fruit, and veggies, using egg white for protein, then your uric acid levels will come down.

Depends: Most infants can start to tolerate more solid foods (such as bits of pasta) around 9 months of age. This often occurs around the same age the baby develops a good pincer grasp. However, some babies have problems which delay the timing (eg. Reflux, feeding aversion or gagging). Also many premature babies need extra time to develop this skills. It is best to consult your doctor on the right timing.

Keep trying: Keep introducing new foods with different textures and flavors. Often they will have to try something up to 10-15 times before liking it. Babies and kids are more likely to eat when they see others eating as well. Be a model for your children and talk about how yummy and healthy the food is. Above all, don't give up, keep introducing those healthy foods and try not to resort to processed foods.

Yes: Frozen vegetables often maintain nutrients better than vegetables shipped long distances. Make sure the food is not heavy in salt and saturated fats. Read the label carefully.
