Super Baby Food

by Ruth Yaron

Voice introduction

Welcome. I’m your host Dr. Paul Smolen, a board certified pediatrician with 35 years of practice and a whole lot to say. I created Portable Practical Pediatrics to bring you good reliable information about things that I thought would help this generation of parents and grandparents raise healthy children. Reviewing and telling you about contemporary parenting books has become a big part of that mission. In that vein, I want to tell you about a book that you might find very useful when it comes time to feed your infants and toddlers, especially if you have never done this before. The whole process of directing your infant’s diet from milk to solid foods can be daunting. Read much about this subject and young parents can quickly become very confused. I think that is where the book Super Baby Food, by Ruth Yaron comes in.  In today’s pedcast, I am going to introduce you to this book and tell you how I think it might be a useful guide to help feed your infants and toddlers. So, let’s get started shall we? Continue reading

Your Children Got Fish? (Pedcast)


Welcome to Portable Practical Pediatrics. One of the things that distinguishes the poor state of the average American child is their lack of consumption of fish. Americans just don’t seem to eat much fish and when they do, they often prepare it in an unhealthy fashion. Recently, the EPA has put out some guidelines for pregnant  women and parents of young children to help bring fish safely into the diets of children. In today’s pedcast, I thought we might take a few minutes to go over why all parents should make an attempt to get healthy fish into their children’s diet and go over these new guidelines put out by the EPA. So, sit back, pop open a can of sardines, crank up the volume on that mp3 player, and listen to this important edition of Portable Practical Pediatrics. Continue reading
