Flower Mound infant child care: feeding your infant during the crucial first year

Posted on 06-22-2014

More growth occurs during your infant’s first year than any other time in your child’s life. It is important to feed your infant a variety of healthy foods. Part of your child care routine should be to implement good eating habits that will help your infant set healthy eating patterns for life.

Breastfeeding your child, if possible, is highly recommended for at least the first 6 months. It is important because breast milk is high in essential nutrients and provides antibodies that strengthen your child’s immune system.

If you are formula-feeding your child, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that infants and toddlers ingest enough Vitamin D to prevent complications through this deficiency. Your pediatrician can advise you on the formula that is most appropriate for your child.

As your child moves on to solid foods, iron-fortified cereals are highly recommended. This nutrient plays a vital role in ensuring that your infant’s system gets plenty of oxygen and also prevents any chance of anemia.

Infants and toddlers should not be eating foods such as hotdogs, round candies, popcorn or any similar foods that could cause a child to choke. This is just one of the many important reasons why parents should know and trust the person who is caring for their infant when they are at work.

To find organic, locally-grown produce that is bursting with nutrients and flavor, visit the Grapevine Farmer’s Market just 18 minutes away.
