Baby-led Paleo

Fulfilling Your Role as a Parent Guilt-Free: It’s hard to fathom choosing anything other than the best foods for our babies; but then getting them to eat it is a story in itself!

Do you think it is safe to raise a Paleo Baby? We know nutrients are key to proper development. It’s becoming more common to see women following a special diet during pregnancy, perhaps preconception too, but at the very least there’s an insistence on taking prenatal vitamins to avoid physical defects in our babies: think folic acid (B9), which is necessary for proper neural tube development to avoid spina bifida, and vitamin A has been shown in studies to be integral to eye development.
