The Baby Bistro Box 2nd edition. For expectant mothers and babies 0-12 months.

When I had my first baby Adam, I had a ton of questions about starting solid foods.

He didn’t like rice cereal, was oatmeal OK?
How much protein did he need?
What foods should I avoid if I have allergies in my family?
Does it really matter if I started yellow fruits before green vegetables?
Is organic food a better choice?

My list was endless, but the hours in the day weren’t. I didn’t have enough time to read dry books and articles about all the latest and greatest nutritional science and my sleep deprived brain wouldn’t have remembered it if I did.

But I had a secret resource...
My sister Christina had just graduated with a Masters of Science degree in Nutritional Science and she was a phone call away. I called her day and night. She knew if I could feed Adam citrus berries and she clued me in about a nutrient that is essential for brain and eye development. I tried to listen carefully and I wrote everything down on scraps of paper that I promptly lost. Once again Christina came to my rescue. She created the Baby Bistro Box®.

    I love babies and children, and am fascinated with the effect of nutrition on their growth and development. My research convinces me that the impact of a proper nutritional foundation during the fetal stages through the first few years of life can help secure optimal future health.

    How could I educate parents? How could I make it fun and easy for busy moms to feed their babies and access the information they needed? I decided to put all the answers in a box, and The Baby Bistro Box® was born. It has been rewarding to hear the positive responses of parents and grandparents to “the box.”

    In fact, almost from day one of The Baby Bistro Box release, I have been asked for a sequel to help with the challenges of feeding toddlers. I am thrilled to announce the release of The Toddler Bistro Box for 1-3 year olds. It has been a joy for me to grow along with your babies, and I wish you all the best and healthy feeding of your loved ones!
