Healthy Eating for Kids: Brussels Sprouts are My Daughter’s Favorite Food (Really!)

How a tragedy helped my daughter develop healthy eating habits early on.

When it was discovered at my daughter’s 3-month check-up that she was losing weight because I actually had a very low breast milk supply, I was about as devastated as I’d ever been in my life. “You have to add formula” the doctor insisted. I refused. We hired multiple lactation consultants and tried everything to get my body to make more milk. I was taking so much fenugreek that it sent my hormones into batshit crazy mode. I couldn’t sleep. I was feverish and sweating constantly. Crying all the time. And after six weeks of herbs, breast compressions, round the clock feeding and pumping, it still didn’t give me the boost I needed to properly feed my daughter.

Happy Meal Marketing is Actually a Crime

We covered the San Francisco Happy Meal toy ban from beginning to end and then some, delving into a couple of different angles and topics. But one thing we didn’t spend a lot of time looking at was the strictly legal precedence for the ban, the legal details. Well, we aren’t lawyers, so it’s not a big surprise, but I recently read a cool, interesting, easy-to-read post on this topic (written by a lawyer) and thought it not only warranted but required a quick share.
