“Vitamin C, foliate, vitamin B1- these things that are really important for an infant- they’re just cooking them out of the food.” — Marshall Louis Reaves on Meet Your Maker
“If we are what we eat, then a lot of babies in America today are apples, mangoes, and bananas. The parents are under the impression that they’re giving their babies a well-balanced diet of green vegetables, and it’s not always the case.” — Lauren Utvich on Meet Your Maker
