But don’t eat it…?
Twice now, within a few weeks, I have attended a birthday celebration for a child’s first birthday. (To be clear, they were for two different children.) In both cases, when it came time for that special cake smash and devour, the baby was utterly disinterested in the cake. Dads stuck a finger-full of icing into the baby’s mouth. The baby showed no interest in finding more of the sugary stuff to eat, let alone touching it.
And it has me wondering, Are babies already clear that they want the healthy stuff, but we just condition them to like the junk??????????(!!)
A bit scary, I think…
