    Sustainable Meat: Smart Selections for Starting Solids with Diana Rodgers, RD

    Sustainable Meat: Smart Selections for Starting Solids with Diana Rodgers, RD

    #76: Grass-fed. Grass-finished. Pasture-raised...hormone-free...antibiotic-free, humanely processed. When it comes to meat, what does it all mean? Self-proclaimed “rogue dietitian” Diana Rodgers joins me for an interview to talk about what it means to select sustainable meat.
     
    For families who do eat animal products, these foods represent important nutrient, taste and texture opportunities for your baby. But Diana takes meat considerations a few steps further: looking at the ethical and environmental implications of how we select and incorporate animal foods, especially beef, into our family diets.
     
    Diana Rogers is a Registered Dietitian and host of the Sustainable Dish podcast. She’s also the author of the book Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat and producer of the just-released film Sacred Cow: The Nutritional, Environmental and Ethical Case for Better Meat. I hope you’ll enjoy this spirited conversation with Diana about the pros and the potential drawbacks of choosing different types of meat for your baby to eat.

    Canned Foods that CAN Work for Baby-Led Weaning

    Canned Foods that CAN Work for Baby-Led Weaning

    #75: You hear about the benefits of “shopping the perimeter” at the grocery store. The implication there that “fresh” and “wholesome” foods are found in the surrounding aisles like fresh produce, meat and dairy. And while there are definitely foods there that babies can eat, let’s NOT discount the canned food aisle.
     
    There are LOTS of canned foods that work GREAT for baby-led weaning and this episode we’re breaking down which type of canned foods your baby CAN eat, how to prep them SAFELY and what should be avoided when it comes to considering canned foods for baby.

    Baby Behavior at Mealtimes: What the Science Says with Tina Payne Bryson, PhD

    Baby Behavior at Mealtimes: What the Science Says with Tina Payne Bryson, PhD

    #74: What is your baby’s behavior at mealtime telling you? Is it possible to spoil a baby by feeding him too much? Can babies even exhibit “bad” behavior? In this episode author, child development and parenting specialist Tina Payne Bryson, PhD is joining me to break it ALL down when it comes to your baby’s behavior at mealtimes - diving DEEP into what the science says!
     
    Tina is the co-author of well-known parenting books such as The Whole-Brain Child and No Drama Discipline (...aka the BIBLE when my quadruplets were toddlers and I had NO idea how to compassionately discipline!) I love Tina’s science-based approach to tackling topics and she’s covering a TON of baby behavior in her new book The Bottom Line For Baby.
     
    Tina is walking us through a TON of positive parenting techniques, like how to react when your baby starts throwing food, responding to family members or friends who question your decision to do baby-led weaning and how to establish boundaries when baby starts pushing your buttons!

    HELP! My Baby Has NO Interest in Food at First

    #73: The first few days, weeks & even months of baby-led weaning can feel BRUTAL. Like your baby isn’t eating a lot and you’re worried they’re not “getting enough” or missing out on iron or what if their growth starts to falter??...
     
    Fear not! MOST babies don’t take IMMEDIATELY to food and that’s because they need time to learn HOW to eat. In this episode we’re breaking down WHY your baby is probably not super interested in food at first and WHAT to do (and NOT do when this happens!)
