We are told to eat fresh veggies and fruits to be healthy. But it's well known that monsanto controls the food and uses chemicals. Is that healthy?

Not all foods: While monsanto may have a hand in many agricultural products, they don't control everything. If you are concerned about chemicals then buy your produce from a local organic farm.

Sample feeding schedule or menu for a 7mo who eats fruits and veggies? She eats a jar of fruit in the AM & a jar of veggies PM w/25 oz of formula/day

Solid foods are for fun, for experience, and for the variety. 2-4 oz food at 3 times a day works fine. Using a high chair, and feeding at the dining table at meal times, helps form good habits. ...Read more

My baby is 7mnts 11 days. She eats half a jar if not less of fruits or veggies a day. Is that enough 4 her? Am I movin to slow w her? What else should

It depends on: The rest of her diet. She is likely getting all of the vitamins and minerals she needs from her other sources of calories.

She is only 5 weeks into taking solids, so I wouldn't panic about her intake of fruits and veggies quite yet. ...Read more
