It’s up to you, conscious parents, to be responsible and show the good way of eating, the delicious way, the healthy way.

Babies, they drink milk, maternal or from the bottle, then start to eat pots, industrial pots in general, unless you have taken the time to cook. These pots are made from vegetables, meat, chicken, fish , fruit, and they all have the same taste!

« Today we are going to make raspberry and mango coulis »

« Today we’re going to make cakes and ice cream, or a smoothie »
