There’s nothing quite like watching your kid gain more and more independence. They develop favorite clothing items, favorite songs, favorite games, and of course favorite foods. Usuall, Mack is a pretty open minded eater, but I swear there are days he will only eat cheese and clementines.
It’s an interesting shift to go from nursing and knowing your baby is getting all they need, to toddler food and hybrid nursing, to watching solids become the main part of their diet. My last conversation with my pediatrician involved varieties of food and making sure he was getting enough of the right foods.
This is due to the fact that there’s no junk in these gummy vitamin supplements! No synthetic colors, artificial sweeteners/flavors/preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and no GMO’s. For kids with allergies it’s a safe bet too- no gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, and they’re vegetarian. I’m learning more and more to appreciate products that you can feel safe about giving your kid and other kids, and know you’re helping them stay healthy while you expose them to other kids and new environments!
I’m feeling much more confident that at the next checkup we’ll have better socialization reports with fewer sick visits in-between!
