Baby's First Foods
Dietitian, mom, and editor of Cooking Light First Foods, Carolyn Land Williams answers common questions about feeding baby.
Sweet Tooth Myth
Q: Is it true that you should introduce veggies first so your baby doesn't have a sweet tooth?
A: Parents often worry that if babies taste sweeter foods first, they'll develop a "sweet tooth" and reject veggies. However, research hasn't proven this to be true. Several of the beginner purees in First Foods are made with sweet vegetables and fruits. This is because root vegetables and soft fruits are mild in flavor and make smooth purees, which babies just starting solids tend to find more palatable.
