Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

NOT healthy at all!: I have no idea what jacob's is but everything else your eating is bread/ starches. The healthiest diet (for both weight loss and good health) is to eat mostly vegetables & fruits with healthy protein and to minimize starch. You don't seem to be eating any veggies/fruit & eating mostly starch, the opposite of a healthy diet! My favorite diet is Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian- see http://bit.ly/1dHW9hT ...Read more

Is porridge with sugar on top healthy?

In moderation: In moderation, you didn't say how much sugar. The porridge is healthy, a teaspoon of sugar or less would be my idea of moderation. Try to wean yourself off the sugar habit, there is enough sugar in the processed foods we eat. You don't want to become sugar addicted. ...Read more

Is it healthy to eat soaked, uncooked steel cut oats? I'm getting mixed messages about the health benefits and difficulties of digesting whole grains.

Is it healthy to eat soaked, uncooked steel cut oats? I'm getting mixed messages about the health benefits and difficulties of digesting whole grains.

It's ok: Uncooked soaked oats, like in muesli, are ok. Cooking breaks down cell walls, turns it into porridge, released mucilages and soluble fiber; makes it easier re: digestion, but not likely an issue with normal GI tract. Arguably some of the undigested carbs might increase gas (fermented by bowel bacteria). ...Read more

Can cooking food from a packet that has fallen on the floor cause food poisoning if cooked on low heat? If you handle the food after touching packet?

Can cooking food from a packet that has fallen on the floor cause food poisoning if cooked on low heat? If you handle the food after touching packet?

Unlikely: Of course it depends somewhat on the floor it falls on. Cleaning off food that has fallen and then cooking it should protect against food poisoning but then there are some floor you can eat off and some that you would not want to. Evaluate the floor, clean the food and then cook it thoroughly and you should be fine. Otherwise, maybe you need to discard it. ...Read more

8mo is preferring solids. Not just jarred food but pieces to chew. Can I give him soft scrambled eggs? I read conflicting reviews on allergies/safety.

Yes: It is no longer that controversial. Recent studies showed that introducing table food later than the 1st 6 months of life may actually increase the risk of developing food allergies.
