Your baby will progress from smooth purees to finger foods between 6-9 months of age. My little guy started showing interest in feeding himself when he was about 7.5 months and was fairly comfortable with finger foods by 8 months of age. It can be nerve-racking letting your baby feed him or herself, but it’s also important to let him or her explore foods with their hands to prepare for self-feeding.

You can partially blame the fast-food industry for the bad reputation potatoes have been given in the past few decades. Once these establishments discovered they could fry potato slices in vats of oil, call them French (to make it sound sophisticated of course) and turn it into a billion dollar enterprise, it was game over for this tuberous nightshade.

Airplane and train noises are the name of the game when it comes to feeding our kids. Somehow we seem to believe that “Chugga-chugga-chugga-open-the-tunnel-and-let-the-carrots-in” will convince our little ones to eat their vegetables or anything else we might be trying to feed them at the time. As Lorraine Regel and Erica Wells discuss, it may be in the best interest of you and your child to nip this habit (and the one of spoon-feeding your child) in the caboose.

I was trying to develop a treat for my son’s school Christmas celebration that could fit within the school allergy restrictions. Because allergies are so prominent these days, I wanted something for “almost” anyone. So here it is…the most delicious dairy, egg and nut free cookie EVER!! And if that is not exciting enough…it contains GREENS!!! Chewy brownie on the inside and crisp powdered sugar on the outside…this recipe is a must!!

It wasn’t so long ago that sweet potatoes were merely a staple on the holiday table, and even then they were usually covered in marshmallows or a sweet, butter-and-sugar-laden glaze. More recently, sweet potato fries have been popping up on menus everywhere, as restaurants and pubs jump on the bandwagon of offering an alternative to the standard white potato French fry. Unfortunately this deep-fried delicacy isn’t much better for you or your kids than the sugar-filled Thanksgiving option.
