Hello, and welcome to the baby food doctor website, a site full of all the information you need to raise a nutritionally healthy baby from conception through the toddler years.
I am Dr. Kim Bruno,
The Baby Food Doctor.
I am passionate about the nutrition of our little ones because we are building their foundation of health, and a foundation build on French fries is not going to serve well in the years to come. (I mention French fries because did you know that the most consumed "vegetable" by American infants is French fries)well with that being said, we have a lot of work to do, but our children deserve it.
How did I become the Baby Food Doctor?
My inspiration is my daughter, now just over a year and the joy of our family. I have owned a holistic health clinic,
, and treated patients with clinical nutrition for several years, and then I became pregnant. My focus changed to having the healthiest pregnancy and then the healthiest baby. I applied all my clinical nutrition and health knowledge to every aspect of my pregnancy and my new baby’s life. The result? A perfect, uncomplicated homebirth of a healthy baby, who at every doctors visit, even when she is feeling under the weather, the doctor comments “this is the healthiest baby I have ever seen”.
Now this has not always been easy. I had breastfeeding trouble, but through the many resources available, many of which are discussed on this site, I found the help I needed and continued to ensure my baby was able to have the perfect food for her developing body. Now I have a toddler, and there are days when I she refuses to open her mouth for anything, even if it was her favorite yesterday. We have learned to work through the trials and my daughter’s health is going to be better in the long run.
In our playgroups, at my practice, and talking with other mothers I was finding that there was a lot of misinformation and lack of information on the topics of baby and children nutrition. I decided that if I wanted our children to benefit from a better nutritional start that I needed to reach more mothers, fathers, grandparents and caregivers.
Thus the birth of
The overseeing mission of
is to spread good quality, evidence based information on nutrition from conception through the toddler years as to improve the overall quality of our children’s health.
Thank you for visiting!
In good health,
Dr. Kim Bruno
