The Nutrition Nuclear Arms Race

As far as nutrition and being a mommy goes, I feel like nothing is ever good enough.


Mom 1: My kids are eating boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Mom 2: Mine too. And we buy our chicken from a local free range farm.

Mom 1: Oh, so do we. And our farm names their chickens and lets them do water color paintings.

It never ends! And it's ridiculous! And the ladies at Rants From Mommyland agree, and there's a hilarious post about it that involves that new My Plate thing from the USDA.

For the past couple months I've been driving myself crazy with trying to make homemade organic baby food (looking up recipes, pureeing like crazy, freezing the food in little IKEA ice cube trays so Ansley can have wholesome homemade vegetable goodness in the shape of hearts and stars). Well, this week I'm saying screw it. I'm buying Earth's Best and calling it a day. It's good to know I'm not alone :-)
