    Default When are these foods good to give?

    DD is almost 19 mths old but I was just wondering, would these be ok for her to try (if she's willing since she's a picky eater ):

    a) ham (like lunch slices)
    b) wheat germ (not for the fiber, but for taste)

    #3 Victoria 12/16/13

    New sights, new goals, new directions...

    Both of mine ate ham around 12 mos and we did wheat germ in plain/unflavored yogurt starting around 9mos

    as a general rule though we dont give Max lunch meat b/c of the nitrates and the odd pieces of pressed meat thing. However he'll eat ham/pork that I cook and slice.

    We've found a nice brand of nitrate/nitrite free ham that I over. I will buy some and ask the deli person to slice it on a "10" (really thick). Then I'll take my paring knife and "cube" the ham. Cubed ham and cheese is one of their faves for lunch. Same with turkey or chicken.

    I was wondering about pork. Not as an everyday thing, just once in a while. Is it Bohr's Head brand (sp?)

    Most delis will have a pamphlet that shows the ingrediants and you can find some that are natural, thats what we have done for ds. I think bohrs head makes some that are nitrate free, but ask your deli person to be sure.

    You should avoid processed foods of any kind ENTIRELY before the year point because of salt. They can't process the salt until after the year point. So no pork. Or pickles. Or ANYTHING processed because they put salt in everything as a preservative.

    Way too lazy for formula
