Many people will be under the impression why I would want to write a book upon the diet for a healthy baby, because according to them every mother knows that the best diet for a little one is just go, pick up one of the packages of baby food from the nearest supermarket shelf, and there you are, instant baby food for your baby.
For a majority of mothers out there, it is – just bring it home, open it up, mix it in a bowl, and feed it to your baby, at regular intervals. No mess, no fuss. Is it a wonder that a majority of new mothers out there use this shortcut to feed their little ones, because according to them, the food that their baby is being fed is prepared by expensive brands, and nutritious, and best of all, it feeds baby fruit, cereals, solids, and semisolids.
This book is definitely against such a time-saving activity, because you want a healthy baby, don’t you? This book is going to tell you all about natural diets, being used down the ages to feed babies, and when, and how. Throw away all your scientific-based books, telling you all about the amount of calories you need to feed your baby, and the nutritive value of every spoonful. Babies are not to be brought up that way.
They have to be brought up in a natural manner in which they can build a strong immune system, which is going to keep them be healthy for the rest of their lives.
But, you are going to say, you were brought up on store bought baby food, and it did not seem to have any detrimental effect upon your health. Well, I would just say, please compare yourself to a baby, who was brought upon fresh fruit, vegetables, natural products, and the traditional way of bringing up a baby – which so many people are being brainwashed into thinking to be old-fashioned, old-school, and even “medieval” by the popular media today selling products of the multibillion-dollar baby food industry – and compare his state of health with your own.
He does have the slighter edge over you, doesn’t he? He is not prone to infections, has a stronger immune system, can throw off fever and other ailments easily, and has more energy, staying power, and even powers of concentration. In fact you are sick and tired of such a bouncing dynamo floating all over the place.
