This article is for all the moms and dads out there with tiny babies, both current and yet-to-be-born. It was triggered by a discussion I had with my staff yesterday about a young mother who was feeding her infant Gatorade and graham crackers as the baby’s staple diet.

It is never too early to start kids on the path to healthy eating, and children begin to establish eating habits in their first year of life.
