  1. We just had a newborn, too and as we prepare for the quickly approaching solid food phase, we're trying to think through what that diet might look like. I can't imagine that cheerios and sugary grape juice are good options in light of everything we know about the adult diet at this point. Do you have any resources, videos, or starting points for formulating a healthy childhood diet for our new kiddo? There doesn't seem to be many resources out there that take all of the recent insulin-related scientific discoveries/breakthroughs into consideration for kids.

  2. Yeah, have loved the "science" videos; the addition of "family life" is a good move. Especially would enjoy some nutrition for kids (we have 2 1/2 year old twins). Very loving, very healthy family. Well done.

  3. Congrats for baby Tommy he is so cute and peaceful…could not believe he just fall asleep while a lot of things were going on…very nice video, I will try this pizza…thanks guys!

  4. Always enjoy learning, especially from a nice young family. You may want to try a version where you spread a thin layer of cheese before the marinara. Have told many about your channel, it's a great help and inspiration.

  5. I love watching you with your son . Enjoy this stage . It passes all too quickly . I know . Mine was 6.5 pounds one day ,and he is 6'2" tall and past 30 years old . Snap! Really liked this , but I will be making my crusts as my local stores don't stock exotics like this yet. ( I live in rural Mexico.) Thanks for the tips . The Science never bores me!
