Baby Café:  Discussion Topic

Let Them Eat Dirt...?!

"In the 150 years since we discovered that microbes cause infectious diseases, we’ve battled to keep them at bay. But a recent explosion of scientific knowledge has led to undeniable evidence that early exposure to these organisms is beneficial to our children’s well-being. It turns out that our current emphasis on hyper-cleanliness and poor diets are taking a toll on our children’s lifelong health."--B. Brett Finlay and Marie-Claire Arrieta, authors of "Let Them Eat Dirt".

 Consider these: Are microbes always bad for us? Is there such a thing as an "over-sanitized" world? How do we make healthy feeding and lifestyle choices? Let's come together and share our views at Baby Café this week.

 "Schedule" for the morning: We sing some silly songs with the kids, then we let the kids/babes play with the babysitters while we have our discussion/hear from someone.  After the "learn & discuss" time, we have a snack and just hang out until 11:30ish.  There are volunteers who take care of our little ones and provide the snack so we can rest a bit.  We're in the room right next to the kids while they play so we can hear them, but the great thing is someone else is taking care of them!
