It is every mother’s desire and responsibility to give the best to their babies. This desire and responsibility starts once they confirmed that a baby has been conceived in their womb. From then on, the expectant mothers make sure that they eat the right food. Mothers do their best to eat food that are healthy and good for the development of their babies right up to the time the babies are weaned from their mother’s milk. Many mothers forgo their favorite food which they think may not be good for the health of their babies. Some mothers even stopped their smoking and drinking habits especially when they are breast feeding their babies.
As the babies grow, it is time for mothers to slowly introduce soft food into their babies’ diet. Sad to say, many of the baby food sold in the market are not free from traces of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics and growth hormones which are harmful to the babies’ growth and health. In our modern world where most are working mothers, they have no choice but to depend on commercialized or mass produced baby food. Many didn’t even know about the actual content of the food packed into packets, bottles or tins. Most of these processed baby food do not contain 100 % natural food. Artificial flavoring and additives have been added to make the food more flavorful to taste.
