Foods for children, best industrial or fresh?

Recently was spread a leaflet for families in which they highlighted the advantages of industrial foods for specific childhood nutrition of children. Products safer, more controlled, more nutritious and healthy. To recommend these types of products was directly.
But after a few days in a statement said that the increased quality and safety of the baby food industry compared to natural products are not scientifically proven and then dissociates from Fimp’s recommendations.


At this point I wonder: “Are pediatricians against paediatricians. To whom should we trust? “


In the brochure States that: “The 50% of the fresh fruit contains pesticide levels not suitable for infant feeding” and that: “the 35% wheat in Italy contains residues of pesticides too high for infant feeding.” For the Acp data reported by Fimp on release to support the validity of these claims are largely debatable.
1) intend to reassure and encourage all those parents who, around the sixth month of life, use complementary feeding at the request of the child, using foods that take themselves;
2) reaffirm the importance of adequate information to parents for a healthy nutrition for the whole family and undertake to make print ad hoc campaigns;
3) encourage a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and plants for the whole family, including when it is possible to produce short chain and in this case often also organic (also through participation in cooperative purchasing groups, so-called Gas).
4) believe that industrial foods intake affects their food culture of different peoples and different families through delegated to third parties ‘ experts ‘ even the simple act of nurture his own son;
5) undertake to continue to fight to raise the food safety agencies to improve more and more laws and regulations, together also associations to consumer protection;
6) believe that the actions of advocacy to put safe food at table within the largest chapter of the protection of the environment, public health priority. The nterventi should be ‘ politicians ‘ and must fall on the entire population, including of course the most vulnerable groups (including foetuses and embryos);
7) emphasize that the promotion of the food industry for children penalizes less affluent families, and worsens the quality of the environment through the multiplication of packaging waste and their disposal and transportation through the territory.


Finally, the Acp believes that, under the general principle of transparency, “documents of this kind involves – as happens in the world – the need to declare the source of funding at the base of information campaign”.


I believe that for mothers who do not have time to prepare meals and vegetable soups, baby food and reassuring to know that industrialized foods are equally good and healthy for children. In addition to extremely comfortable!
We want to talk about the fruit jar when you’re around? Never without!


My pediatrician, when I started weaning Marco told me: “Madam, if you know the provenance of the food prepare well everything, but if you must take the fruit from the supermarket, then it is better than in the jar, is more controlled!


Homogenised meat made at the time by MOM. And the fish? In Puglia … fresh!


Now that I’m older, I cook a lot on weekends (sauces, meatballs, meat broth, etc.) and put in the freezer. During the week wonder what want to eat, scongelo jars, et voila, the dish is ready. And I am sure that they eat well … or almost!
