Julie Hyunjoo commented on Supporting parents to give babies a nutritious start in life

Hi Bettina Fliegel I've seen the http://kidshealth.org - I found their nutrition section helpful.
For Korean resources, a famous blog made by a paediatrician and his wife was very helpful (Later the blog was published as a book). One conflicting part is their frequent use of rice and beef. Koreans would eat rice everyday. However, feeding rice only is not recommended by FDA due to potential exposure to arsenic in U.S.

Most conflicting part was beef. Beef provides heme iron and that's great for breastfed 6 month old. However, not many baby food books mention it, and it wasn't easy to find a good alternative heme-iron food.

Another interesting discovery is, at least in my extended family, French don't push moms on breastfeeding. I found it somehow refreshing after being told I "should" breastfeed for so long (up to 4 years). Yes. Breastfeeding matters, but I don't want to feel guilty of stopping it when I want.

Hi Kate,
Thank you so much for kind words, and letting others know about Nuttri.
We haven't actively reached out to mothers yet because the most important feature is being developed (I think we are close).
And, you are right. We want to partner with health services to reach out to moms, as well as combine it with other advice too.
We'd love nutritionists' feedback. Ideally, we'd collaborate with them to come up with more advanced content such as vegetarian baby meals, seasonal meals, etc.

Yeah. In Android, it's still named as Lena Studio (it's my husband developer name ;) - We are in the process of rebranding and republishing it this week :)
