My wife and I entered parenthood as rank amateurs. But one thing we did right early on was decide we weren't going to dumb things down for our daughter. Whenever possible, we would encourage her to move beyond common expectation by engaging her in honest conversations about real things, reading her challenging books, and feeding her the same real food we ate. The last thing was one of the smartest moves we ever made.
Not only did we forever simplify mealtimes and skip the whole eat-your-vegetables-or-else thing, today our 12-year-old has a remarkably sophisticated palate. Now parents no longer have to stumble down this path: Dr. Alan Greene's new book that tells us exactly how to train our children's taste buds and set them up for a lifetime of instinctually healthy eating habits. Devour our review of Feeding Baby Green right here and cook up a healthier future for your own brood.
