So much sushi from a menu comes with uncooked fish. The taste may be interesting but is eating raw tuna, etc., always healthy?

Non-fried foods: Restaurant foods are often not made to be healthy but are made to taste good so customers will return. That means restaurant foods will have more oil, more salt, or more sugar than home-made foods. Grilled chicken breast is good, but usually the menu item is fried chicken strips.

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
It doesn't matter: Aside from not feeding anything at night, it doesn't matter what the feeding schedule is. At 6-9 months, a baby gets most of his nutrition from breast milk or formula (don't need to count the total ounces). 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
