Learning to Love Healthy Food

Did you know that, as a mom, you may be able to influence your child’s food preferences by eating healthy foods while you’re pregnant? Studies have shown that early exposure can help infants learn to enjoy certain flavors once they begin eating solid foods. By eating organic fruits and vegetables during pregnancy and post-pregnancy, and offering your child a variety of puréed organic fruits and vegetables often, you may help eliminate mealtime struggles with fruits and vegetables down the road.
