You may have seen the February 2021 Congressional Report stating there are toxic metals in commercial baby. It definitely made me stop in my tracks when I first learned about this. Interestingly enough, toxic heavy metals in baby food in not new news. (Yes, even the organic baby foods!) So what does all this even mean? Are you now making all your own baby food? Before you toss all your jarred baby food and start on your home garden, take a listen to today’s podcast.

In this episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies, I speak with Malina Linkas Malkani, MS, RDN, CDN, Registered Dietitian. Malina breaks down the recent report, explains side effects to this exposure, and practical ways to reduce baby’s exposure to contaminants. She also shares ideas for baby’s first foods, there are so many more options than rice cereal!

(ps… If you stay until the very end of the podcast, you can hear about what happens when you put dish soap in a dishwasher! Fun tales from Malina and Deb’s past!)
