I'm not sure if this is a sign, message, or just coincidence. There is a new report that discusses living with a picky eater and how to cope. It wasn't until I noticed this alert was for babies to age 2.

My daughter is almost 2 years old and she just made a visit to urgent care. Last week Leo was in the emergency room getting looked at. Eyes don't blink in our family when it comes to food-based upon history. Now I read this.

Nutritional exposures during the first 1,000 days of life not only contribute to long-term health but also help shape taste preferences and food choices.

This is the one that caught me, "No added sugar at all."

I'm posting the link because they go in deep about what that means. Some sugars are healthy because they have great sources of fibers you need. For instance, they say your kids shouldn't drink more than 4 ounces of 100% fruit juice every day.

I think I'm missing all these up. We found out our son was allergic to milk and so many others at 11 months. Lennox grew out of those issues but we still keep our eyes open. You never know.

In-depth details below.
