This is a blog about food. I have a couple of picky eaters in my little family, myself being one of them. I try to make a variety of things at every meal, so there is always something that everyone will eat. There are days, though, when I wish I could just make each kid a bottle and be done with it. This mom has her limits, and these kids who call me Mom know how to get me there.
Of course, as soon as I remember how expensive baby formula is, I am thankful that my kids are older. Although, more and more stores are offering generic brand infant formula for a whole lot less money than the name brands. It's funny how some people think the name brand formulas are better for their babies, when in reality, they are the same as the store brand formula. They have to be, thanks to Infant Formula Act.
"This legislation vested FDA with the authority to ensure that all infant formulas sold in the United States provide the necessary levels of identified nutrients required for the growth of healthy babies. Store-brand formulas are nutritionally equivalent to Enfamil® and Similac® brand-name formulas but cost up to 50% less."
That can be a savings of up to $600 a year. That's a whole lot of money you could save simply by making the switch to generic formula. If you think back a couple of months, there was a recall on Similac because of beetles. That should tell you right there that even the name brands aren't always the best for your baby.
