Summer is almost here and it’s time to start thinking about how you can protect your baby’ skin from the suns powerful rays. Believe it or not, you can help protect your infant from the harmful effects of UV radiation by incorporating high antioxidant foods that work to repair damage caused by the sun. One reason I love Baby Gourmet products is because every meal option includes ingredients known to protect against skin and other cancers as well as repair damaged tissues right down to a cellular level.

If you’re looking for a decadent and comforting soup with real cheese and broccoli you can actually taste, but lets you leave the cream and cheese consumption guilt behind, this is the recipe for you! Jen has turned a traditionally heavy soup into lighter fare! Using sharp, aged cheddar lets you reduce the amount of cheese without sacrificing great taste, and with evaporated skim milk instead of crean, your conscience rest easy while you enjoy this family favorite!

Most parents don’t have the luxury of preparing their babies foods from scratch and since it’s hard to find a reliable and trustworthy company, I prefer to stick with and recommend products made by Baby Gourmet. Not only are the foods made with all organic ingredients and free of all allergenic foods, but the packaging is BPA-free and recipes are designed specifically to compliment babies’ developing digestive system, divided in 3 phases specific for 6+, 7+ or 8+ months of age.

Other brands taste chalky or like cardboard. Why would I feed my baby something I wouldn’t taste myself?
