I ask this because I've read in so many discussions about mums feeding salty or spicy foods, chocolate, foods with sugars, food with chemicals, processed foods ans so on...
I am wondering what kind of food education is given in most houses, I was brought up rather healty and with my son I'm doing even more, he eats olive oil (a teaspoon lunch and dinner) no added salt or sugar, no processed foods, and none o the above, only hand made or carefully selected pre-made foods (cheese with no preservatives etc.), as I am fully aware this situation will change in the future when he meets friends and goes to school where there will be packed food or machines with snacks and this is why it's impoortant to give him the best start for his health, after all the US and the UK are very similar in obesity rates and this might be why, because of what they start to eat when they are so young, but by now and with internet as a source of information that works worldwide people and mums should now be aware of what is good and what is not. Yet they mostly aren't and I really wonder why. What makes "you" think that introducing processed and chemical foods in a young pure body does not cause any harm?
I hope this discussion is taken as a mean to think about it.
