Milk or soy protein is the basis of most infant formulas. The secret ingredients in these products are often soy or milk from cows injected with rbGH. Many brands also add GE-derived corn syrup or corn syrup solids. If you can’t breastfeed, or need to supplement, buy certified organic infant formulas or formulas labeled as Non-GMO.
Most foods for infants are just what the label says with few preservatives or additives except water. You can puree fresh fruits and veggies (except non-organic papaya, yellow squash, corn, or soy) daily for your baby, or try preparing a large batch and freezing it in small jars, bags, ice trays or containers to thaw and use later. This gives you the ease of portable, serving-sized jars, and lets you know exactly what’s in it because you made it!
If you can’t puree fresh products on a daily basis, try these suggestions:
