After Breast Milk Or Formula – What Next to Keep Your Baby Healthy

After breast milk or formula what next to keep your baby healthy,obesity and the wrong diet causes many health problems, To be more diligent start your baby off on the right foot is the best way, give them lots of green vegetables baby food and fruits, fiber do not forget lots of fruits, and if your child has slow bowels, watch them as they will hold their bowels when it is time for them to move as it hurts them to have a bowel movement! This is age 2-3. We bought a book about a prize they will get if they have a bowel movement, So we would read that book and tell him he could do it and he struggled so hard and cried (we cried too) But he did had a huge bowel movement and had broken out into a sweat. What a night that was and he was so exhausted, he stuck his thumb in his mouth snubbing and went off to sleep.

Some of our friends are having the same problem. This seems to be a common problem today as the diet the little ones eat is far from healthy. Here is one diet:

  • Hamburger with cheese
  • Cat sup
  • French fries
  • Cola or sugar loaded soft drinks or milk

Here is another one:

  • Chicken nuggets
  • French fries with lots of cat sup
  • Milk shake, cola or milk
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Snacks
  • Banana
  • Berries
  • Blueberry Yogurt

Obese children cannot climb up the stairs, they do not have much energy, so they do not burn up all that food they consume. And the sadness of all of this is that they want to eat, french fries, hamburgers with lots of catchup. The do not eat green vegetables, you can forget that and give them what they want to keep peace, I wonder how many mothers do this? A lot I bet! All he would do is pout and say, “no” if you tried to get him to try some thing else.

As soon as lunch was over which ended up being Macaroni and Cheese and not home made, how dare I say such a thing, it would end up being all processed boxes of Macaroni and cheese. With our grandson, we had the bowel problem, he would hold it by putting his knees together and going to a quiet place, hoping we would not bother him, at first we did not bother him, until we could see he was not having one he was struggling not to have one because he said, “it hurts”. its amazing even though he drank lots of water and was very active, he would still be able to hold almost a cup of warm water in his enemas! He is not obese but we worried that he would be,

We seem to be caught up in a macaroni and cheese world filled with preservatives and man made chemicals and peer pressure. Young mothers are so busy learning how to take care of their children that taking the easy way out does not seem to be harmful and so they go along with the crowd! Does any one remember when we had birthday parties at home with birthday cake and ice cream! Our children were happy and we were delighted with the success and how all who came enjoyed the party, but now they are held in fast food pizza eatery with all those video games that children love!

Have you noticed all those big birthday cakes made with lots of sugar and butter. The problem with all the sugar the children eat is they are a ball of fire the rest of the day, cannot sit still and jump from one thing to another, there is very little down time in a household after one of these birthday pizza parties. So young mothers have their hands full and in my mind I think all they can do is the best they can!
