Well I certainly didn't ban formula, because when we had Thrush From Hell I had to supplement briefly while pumping and I was very thankful formula existed for that reason. I think it's a shame to add guilt to some mamas who had difficulty breastfeeding by lumping formula as a forbidden food, when in some cases it's not a choice, you know?
We're still BFing and I'm thankful for it, but there by the grace of God and all that, you know?
But when it comes to solids, we stick to organic with probably 95%+ of her foods. But even if it's not organic, it's still all-natural and from non-genetically modified foods. And no meat. When she's old enough to understand without guilt or fear about what meat is, then she's free to choose for herself. But for us, eating meat is a moral decision and one I'm not comfortable with forcing on my child. She can choose for herself and if she does choose to eat meat one day then I'll prepare it for her, but by golly it'll be free-range, grass-fed meat.
I'm okay with some sugar, but not candy or anything (she gets org. yogurt covered pretzels as treats and we call that "candy"). No artificial anything though, and no HFCS or hydrogenated oils. She's had sips of my organic ginger ale though, so I can't say absolutely no soda -- but definitely nothing with HFCS or caffeine in it.
And no fast food thus far and not ever if I can help it, but I know that in today's world that's unrealistic, but as long as I can pack food for her, there'll be no drive-throughs for us.
As she gets older we'll let her have some things on occasion (moderation is good) but she's already a picky eater and I want very much to establish very healthy eating habits while she's young. Because I know from personal experience that starting out with unhealthy habits can take a Very Long Time to overcome. I grew up on Coke and Fruit Loops and ate like crap until I was well into my 30s. And it was really hard to give up a lot of those bad habits. I wish our parents had started us out on a better foot when it came to nutrition, so that's something we're being very dilligent about with our child.
