A Key to Healthier Adult Diets: Healthier Baby Diets

New research has found a critical window between 6 and 12 months of age when children may be most receptive to new foods. This is the perfect time to intro veggies & set your kids up for a life of healthy eating.

These insights align with the work of our Shaping Early Palates partners who are committed to giving parents healthier, veggie-forward options in the marketplace.

More from The Wall Street Journal 👇

As the federal government weighs the first-ever dietary guidelines for children under 2, there’s evidence that the food habits of young kids influence their diet—and their health—later on.

Samah Dada of Dadaeats by Samah is closing out our 12-week recipe celebration with a beautiful fried 'rice' full of lush seasonings. We love how the texture of riced cauliflower gives you that rice-like feel but while also adding in a ton of vegetables that you maybe didn’t expect to get into your system during that day. Double win!

How the American diet worsens COVID-19

Here are three things we know:

1️⃣ Food is a primary building block of health.
2️⃣ The current U.S. food system funnels low-cost, calorie-dense, highly processed foods into underserved communities.
3️⃣ The lack of affordable access to healthy food is leading many to ​die​ from the ravages of COVID-19.

Partnership for a Healthier America's President & CEO Nancy E. Roman spoke with Axios about the connection between food and COVID-19.

Coronavirus kills far more Hispanic and Black children than White youths, CDC study finds

Health equity cannot exist without #foodequity. There are many social determinants of health contributing to the greater number of COVID-related deaths in hispanic and black communities, but access to fresh, high-quality healthier foods is critical to ensure all families and communities can not only survive but thrive during this pandemic and beyond. From Washington Post.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/09/15/covid-deaths-hispanic-black-children/

More than 75 percent of children dying from covid-19 are minorities, a finding that echoes disproportionate death rates among adults.

For week six of our partnership with SideChef in honor of the COVID-19 Fresh Food Fund, Katie Ferarro of Fourtified Family - The Ferraro Quadruplets & the Baby Led Wean Team has a baby-friendly veggie burger!

These burgers are a nutritional powerhouse that the whole family can enjoy. The burgers are baby-safe, pack iron from the black beans, and the vitamin C from the sweet potatoes help bodies of all ages absorb it. The dipping sauce is not only a delicious add-on, but if you're introducing this to small children and/or babies, it can help moisten the patties, to keep mealtime safe and avoid the choking hazard sometimes associated with dry foods.
