Transcript for Expert's Advice on What to Feed Your Baby
We got some baby love and baby food and a lot of babies. And I here. Hello. This is Dr. Tanya Altman, she has a plan to make sure your kids get the nutrition they need. Say good-bye to the picky eater for good. We have some new moms here. First, we want to ask you, parents who are concerned with childhood obesity, what can you do from an early age to get them eating right. Following my plan will get your children eating good and avoid weight issues later in life. At 6 months. Skip the baby food aisle. It E's less expensive to make baby food at home.

Our question is, how do we prevent her from developing a sweet tooth too early? That's a great question, avoid juices and other sweet-tasting beverages. Get her used to plain water at this age. She'll grow up to love plain water. We all know that she's sweet enough. Aren't you, she's so cute. Thank you, Dr. Tanya, great tipgs for everyone. Ginger, were you paying
