Why Baby Steps?

Our Story began in 2009 when our daughter was born. By the spring of 2010, after months and months with a “colicky” baby and an extensive breastfeeding elimination diet, it was clear to me that our little Lady A would need to eat “cleanly” for quite a while longer and that our whole family could really benefit from a FOOD FACELIFT…so Baby{food}Steps was born…

Small changes we are making each week to go from PROCESSED to PURE (or at least PURER than where we began!)

I hope that you will find something useful here… I am doing this blog for 3 main reasons:

  • to journal our changes so my husband, grandparents, and future caregivers will have a reference for feeding our daughter and son
  •  to share and learn from others on how to become healthier with food choices
  •  to make me more accountable for making one change a week for my family,  if I make myself blog about it, I hope I will keep it up!

As the blog has evolved, 3 guiding principles have emerged to this step-by-babystep process~

Baby{food}Step’s~ 3 FREE

  • reduction and ultimately elimination of High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • reduction and ultimately elimination of Hydrogenated Oils
  • reduction and ultimately elimination of Artificial Colors,  Artificial Flavors and Preservatives

So jump-in, where-ever you are in life: from queen and king of packaged and over- processed-dinner to gluten-free-guru… there is no judging here… just learning and taking ONE BABY {food} STEP at a time, together!

  3. My family is also taking steps toward a healthier diet and lifestyle. We are in the process of switching from full cream cows milk to rice/almond milk. I am achieving this by mixing lactose free cows milk with rice milk on a 50/50 ratio and using rice or almond milk in my cooking. I have also moved the family from standard multigrain wheat bread to spelt bread and switched all our breakfast cereals to gluten free……small steps but bringing about big changes for the better 🙂

    Hi, I appreciate your site. I have been researching ketosis, as it helped me with my social anxiety, and other health problems that may be related to mitochondrial damage. Have you read this article?

    I took “baby steps”, in gradually reducing my carbs, and gradually increasing my fats-coconut oil, butter, meat fat, and cod liver oil. My carbs are mostly just low carb vegetables, sometimes raw nuts, spices, along with moderate amounts of unprocessed meats, and a lot of fat-about 65 to 70 % fat.
