ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the "Start Healthy Feeding Plan," the first-ever nutritional guidelines for infants and toddlers created by the American Dietetic Association and Gerber team. The plan confirms a few existing truths (that breast milk or iron-fortified formula provides all the nutrients a baby needs for the first six months, for example), but it also offers much that's new: In a survey of 800 moms with children under 2, only 1 percent offered meat as a first solid food. Experts say it doesn't matter which food you introduce first, but nearly three out of four moms surveyed believed vegetables, not fruits, should be their baby's first food.
