A.Making healthy food choices yourself.

B.Discussing your baby's diet with your pediatrician or nurse practitioner.

C.Both of the above.

 

Answer C.

When Mom fills up on healthy bites, her toddler is less fussy about what's on his plate and shows more interest in eating well, reveals research in The International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, so start laying the good-for-you groundwork now. In another study, scientists at Pennsylvania State University found that when nurses taught new moms healthy feeding practices (such as avoiding calorie-laden, low-nutrient foods), their babies were more likely to accept veggies and new foods. But, please, don't let that stop you from dipping into a bowl of ice cream now and then. Moderation, Mama!
