The Best Baby Formula

Exclusive breast-feeding for a full six months may ironically improve our children’s taste for vegetables, whereas children fed formula grow up with increased rates of inflammatory diseases such as asthma, cancer, and diabetes.

In order for women to breastfeed for six months, it needs to seem to be a natural and normal thing to do. Breasts need to be desexualized. Maternity leave should be extended. It should be easier to access lactation consultants. Mothers need to be encouraged to live a lifestyle that simplifies breastfeeding without them feeling lonely and isolated.

The weird thing is, in my family my breastfed boys still refuse to eat vegetables and my 1st, who was formula-fed, loves all sorts of vegetables, always has.

The boys are all now adults, and the only thing I can think of is that my own diet was not varied enough, and I did introduce solids at 1 month old with my first, because that's what you did way back then. And I gave him all sorts of vegetables before he was a year old.
