Judging what other people feed their kids combines two of the great pastimes of our age — obsessing over who eats what and overreacting to minor differences in parenting philosophies. While parents used to have a simple solution for feeding their babies called baby food (the name is so simple, it’s food and it’s for babies, done and done), now they face a bewildering array of choices and beliefs that are bound up in conflicting ideas about health, the environment, ethics, and class.
