There are several trends that celebrity parents are following when it comes to feeding their children. We as everyday parents can follow these healthy trends as well. I was happy to discover that the latest healthy feeding trends aren’t from expensive boutiques, but from my local grocery store.
The Organic Trend
Celebrity parents, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner, and Gweneth Paltrow, all feed their children organically. Some favorite brands include Crofter’s Organic Fruit Spread and Earth’s Best baby food. Crofter’s is not only organic, but it’s low enough in sugar that I can give it to Allison, my 4 yr old Type 1 Diabetic, and not stress over it (8g of carbs per serving). Earth’s Best has been widely known in mom blog circles as being the organic food with no added salt, starches or refined sugars.
The Gluten Free Trend
Elisabeth Hasselback, of The View, is one of the many celebrity parents embracing the gluten free feeding trend. Envirokidz Bars are an organic, crispy rice bar. It has a kids pleasing taste and is found in most grocery stores. Tinkada Pasta is made with rice and bran. It comes in 18 varieties. Recipes can be found in their website.
The Sugar Free Trend
Madonna is known for strictly following a sugar free diet while raising her daughter, Lourdes. One favorite is Hint Water. It’s a premium essence water with a hint of flavor. It’s unsweetened and has zero calories. Hint comes in 10 delicious flavors. Also, although not sugar free… Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks have no added sugar. It’s freeze dried fruit that’s not just better for you… it’s good for you. Funky Monkey is also gluten free.
The Chemical Free Trend
Celebrities like Melissa Joan Hart (pictured), Jessica Alba, and Tori Spelling all follow this trend. Born Free makes bottles and cups all BPA chemical free. They come in glass and plastic. Their unique design also cuts back on colic and ear infections.
