  • Thank you so much for this video my baby is starting to eat solids and I get a little nervous because I’m not sure how to feed a baby besides the basic baby jar replacement recipes

  • This is exactly what I needed. My daughter has been so picky and I’ve been struggling with new things to try with her so thank you ��

  • Hi Abbey,

    I have a suggestion for a youtuber review video! It’s called ‘Hila Fat Shames Ethan’ on the H3 Podcast Highlights channel. Hila and Ethan (from the H3H3 main channel) discuss Ethan’s struggle with dieting and Hila is quite harsh. She states he should only eat french fries once a year, that it’s a “shame he can’t commit to a diet”, he should “try harder” and that he has a food addiction. I believe, from watching your channel, that she is promoting the unhealthy diet culture that leads to orthorexia and doomed-to-fail fad diets. I would hate for her husband Ethan to fall into a disordered eating pattern. This channel has 1.4 million subscribers and their main channel has 6.5M they have a huge audience!!! For the audience’s sake, I would he great to here your views of the diet speech in this video, and to hear how you would assist Ethan in losing weight for his long-term health without falling into some of the traps of orthorexia, self-loathing, body obsession, etc.

    Obviously she loves and cares for her husband. I am actually a huge fan of their videos which is why I care. You’re input and guidance could truly make changes for both Ethan and Hila, and their impressionable audience.

    I just love your message and I think this would be a great way to spread it to a part of youtube that isn’t aware of intuitive eating, mindful food portions, body positivity and many of the other concepts you promote.

    Hope you’ll consider!
    Here is the link to the video:

  • Could you do a video on appropriate portion sizes for toddlers? I usually let my toddler eat intuitively and she does great at communicating when she’s full or wants more, but she’s currently going through a phase.

  • I am vegan and I’m going to try these recipes for my granddaughters. I will use vegan cheese and butter and also instead of the gelatin (since that’s made from animals) I will use agar agar. Thank you so much for the recipes.
    FYI
    Gelatin is a yellowish, odorless, and nearly tasteless substance that is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage, and bones from animals. It’s made primarily from the stuff meat industries have left over — we’re talking about pork skins, horns, and cattle bones. Ugh.

    I guess if you’re into the philosophy of using the whole animal, you’ll be psyched about this. Plus gelatin contains 18 amino acids, so it does offer some nutritional benefits. But if you’re vegan, you’ll definitely want to skip the chewy candies and your great-aunt’s Jell-O mold — they’re made with gelatin, too. This animal-derived ingredient can also be found in some vitamins and medications, marshmallows (not Trader Joe’s — they’re vegan!), cheeses, yogurts, soups, salad dressings, jams and jellies, fruit snacks, and canned hams. If this tidbit of info grosses you out, you’ll want to pay closer attention to these products’ food labels.

  • Nice! Don’t force your child to eat meat… he will be more healthy without meat. Instead of meat give him nuts seeds and legumes…

  • Okay, I just thought I would share this because my brother has a dairy allergy. I made the goldfish crackers but I used smart balance “butter” and vegan cheddar shreds. I followed the same procedures and they turned out great!

  • Great ideas! We have a snack drawer as well, but with a good kid, we never had a problem. Our daughter always asks before she gets something ��

  • You should do a review of Sam Ozkural one exposing her for stealing recipes for her new ebook. She gives bad nutrition advice. She just made $750,000 off her ebook sales. She promoted herself as a vegan to get followers, then used those followers to sell her ebook and made a crapload of money. She says in the ebook where some recipes are from Kristen Cavallari and other famous people who sold real cookbooks. She even says she got some recipes of Pinterest. She sold them and made so much money. The book has typos and she can’t use proper English. She copied and pasted recipes. She copied Maria Menounos and Kristen Cavallari recipes word for word. She didn’t get permission to use those recipes either. To make almost a million dollars just copy and pasting others recipes is insane to me. She has a huge following and gives bad nutrition advice. She went vegan, gained followers, then said she couldn’t be vegan because she was tired and needed more protein. She had her blood tested and was low in vitamins. She probably also ate the wrong amount of calories a day. She did a sugar detox and told people they could eat ramen noodles on a sugar detox as long as they checked the label. Umm ramen noodles are carbs they break down as sugar. She told people to stop eating all table salt and just use pink salt because it was pretty. People had to tell her that table salt provides iodine and if you strictly cut it all out, you may not get enough iodine and wind up with thyroid issues. The biggest is selling cookbooks stealing recipes. I can’t stand that. It takes a long time to recipe test and for her to make a cookbook so fast just by copying and pasting is crazy to me.

  • It all looks so good. I just wish my fussy Harry would eat of of the stuff ��. I keep telling myself it will get better but he’s going worse ��. Great vlog xx

  • You don’t like salt? Salt makes everything taste amazing. We should put those silly salt free diets behind us if people still have the idea that salt is bad for you

  • Even though I’m 19, we actually eat loads of these! We love organic hummus and cucumber, rolled up in wholewheat tortillas. Cheese is great too!

  • Yes yes yes Emily.. My boys loved the fruit kebabs I made. It was nice for the change to have the ingredients and the kebab sticks to do this rather thinking I will do this soon. I can’t get enough of the hacks videos. ��

  • I’m an adult and I love the snack pods and I love the DIY roll ups particularly because I have a lot of allergies and anything that’s easy and fast that I can do for myself and have it done is a lifesaver so this is for adults to got to tell you more adults could use some more fruit and veg in their diet but to each their own preference I love it though

  • Hey Abby! I was wondering if you had any advice on eating a low fiber diet. I have ulcerative colitis and my doctor has not been particularly helpful.

  • Abbey i love you and your opinion about healthy eating i really wanna know your opinions about lectins i am so confused can you do video on this topic?

  • Not a toddler (I’m a 26 year old “adult”), but I struggle to eat a good variety of vegetables. I love the idea of steaming carrots to go with hummus! I really don’t like crunchy foods, so I think this would help. Love all your videos.:)

  • you should really invest in a dehydrator they are so good to make fruit roll ups, crackers, Kayle chips….I make my own instant brown rice….you just cook the brown rice when it cools spread it on the trays…i put it in a mason jar when its done…that way you want brown rice you don’t have to wait 45 minutes just add to boiling water and its done in 10 minutes.I cook like 3 pounds at a time

  • Hi Emily. I’m looking for the protein ball recipe but the link isn’t working. Would you still have it as when I search, there are so many out there. Thanks:)

  • Me:mom can i cook right now? Mom:why? ps it’s 10:00 Me:BECAUSE Mom:Ok Me:its 2AM starts using blender at 2am when my sister is sleeping

  • thanks for the video, I m really in need of having a proper diet for my toddler. He is 2 years 1 month and of 8 kegs. Can you please help me what should I give him. Mainly he is fizzy with food and low iron and vitamins
