The Key Ingredient for Smarter Kids and Fewer Meltdowns!
Posted on July 24 2017
Want to raise a smarter child? Healthy fats are essential for brain development.
Want your child to have fewer meltdowns? Welp, healthy fat is critical for maintaining energy levels and avoiding crashes, too.
Adding more fat to your child's diet may seem crazy, given the fat-o-phobic culture that we live in. But here are even more reasons why it's so necessary:
50% of your 0-2 year old's calories should come from fat! Yes, HALF!
The key here is to leverage your leftovers so you don't spend your time making special foods just for baby!
We saved so much time by just blending leftovers with healthy fat, and then serving them in our re-fillable food pouch.
A good food pouch was so critical for adding healthy fats, that we designed our own. It needed to have a wide-mouth to make it easy to fill and easy to clean.
We dubbed it The Toddler Tumbler, and it's all-silicone design also makes it completely BPA-Free.
The beauty of storing extra portions in mason jars, is that they can be popped right into the Toddler Tumbler's wide opening.
By pre-ordering the Toddler Tumbler, you'll get 30% off, and you'll help Mason Bottle stay USA-Made and Female-Owned!
Babies get adequate healthy fat from breast milk or formula in the first few months. As you start introducing solids, start trying these fats one at a time to make sure baby doesn't have any allergies.
In addition to adding healthy fat to purees, soups and smoothies, there are other foods that are high in healthy fats that require no prep at all!
This list shows all the other foods that are high in healthy fat that can simply be mashed and served by the spoonful, or diced up for baby to self-feed.
