Nutrition for Infants
Breastfeeding an infant is God's perfect design.
At Food for Life we cannot improve on perfection. The importance of keeping mom nutritionally healthy during lactation cannot be overstated. Mom, let Food for Life help you and your baby be the healthiest possible by participating in a Food for Life Program. To learn about optimum health for mom, visit the Nutrition for Women web page.
At Food for Life we do not promote feeding babies infant formula.
Nearly all infant formulas, including the products distributed free by the U.S. government, contain genetically engineered corn or soybeans, as well as milk from cows injected with bovine growth hormone.
Most milk and dairy products consumed in the U.S. are from cows that are fed genetical engineered corn and soybeans. Cows are designed to eat grass not corn or soybeans. Corn and soybeans are very different than grass and are difficult for cows to digest. Many problems arise for the cows when
forced to eat these products. The cows often get sick and need large doses of antibiotics. The cows do not live healthy lives and die at a young age. Most corn and soybeans grown in the U.S. are genetically modified organisms, which carry extreme animal and human health consequences.
Genetically modified organisms (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) foods are created in a chemistry lab by biotechnology companies and DO NOT occur in nature. Our bodies do not recognize GMO frankenfoods as nutritious.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not conduct or require safety studies on GMOs. The FDA allows the biotechnology companies to do their own safety tests. Keep in mind that the FDA also assured U.S. consumers that past products, such as, DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) an insecticide, PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) which was used in hundreds of products, and Agent Orange (an herbicide defoliant) were perfectly safe. These products are now banned and deemed harmful. Today, some of the same companies make GMO products, which are intended for baby bottles, sippy cups, and breakfast cereal. Food companies are not required to tell the FDA or consumers if their products contain GMOs.
There are some moms that do not produce enough breast milk for their infant or infants (twins+). There are whole food supplements and safe herbs that can stimulate breast milk production. If mom still is unable to produce enough breast milk there are healthy whole food alternatives for these moms to ensure their babies receive wholesome nutrition.
Breastfeeding is the PERFECT food for an infant!
