It’s interesting to me the shift in cultural “norms” over the years. It seems to be true that everything is cyclical. From hairstyles to fashion to politics and beyond, things just have a way of getting out of hand, then coming right back to the basics.
It’s funny to me how so many people today think you are supposed to just buy baby food in jars or pre-packaged in the grocery store. They don’t even stop to think how it was done before this convenience was ever created. Many of these people buy their own food the same way…pre-packaged and lacking in nutrients, but many of them do not. They make their own food, but just don’t even think about serving the same thing to their babies. Then, there are people like me. Our desire to have healthy-eating children, is making us change the way we view food and prepare meals for ourselves.
This was my possibly underwhelming observation when reading this article from April 2009, but I did find it super interesting and hope you will too.
