Questions answered by Nicole Bentley

Nausea and pregnancy: What to eat?

If you are pregnant and you don't like food, what is the best food to eat?

Picky eating with twins

I have 2.5 yr old twins that are very picky eaters. We just found out they have a gluten allergy. Any food ideas? I can't get them to eat much more than apples, GF cookies or tortilla chips ...occasionally turkey hot dogs. :/
