When you’re a new mom, it can be rather difficult to know all of the foods that are unsafe for babies. Some foods can cause an allergic reaction and others can pose a choking hazard.
FOODS THAT ARE CHOKING HAZARDS
There are some many benefits of eating raw fruits and vegetables, but you should think twice before feeding them to your baby. Many raw vegetables are hard and babies are unable chew them up.
One reason you should avoid cow’s milk is because it doesn’t have enough iron for babies and could cause them to have an iron deficiency. The iron is cow’s milk is not easily absorbed and it is also low in zinc and vitamins C and E. When babies drink cows milk too early, it can cause them to have digestive problems such as an upset stomach.
Even though most people wouldn’t agree with me, we don’t actually need caffeine. It doesn’t provide us with any vitamins or nutrients and it’s not required to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Honey contains spores called Clostridium botulinum bacteria, which can invade a baby’s digestive system and cause a baby to develop infant botulism.
Fish is one food that I was always afraid to feed my kids when they were babies. Many types of fish contain high levels of mercury, which can be harmful to your baby’s growing body. Large fish such as swordfish and King Marcel contain the highest level of mercury.
