Sure, you may love animals. You may even call yourself an animal-lover because you proudly identify as vegan. You may own both a cat and a dog, and feed them better than you yourself eat—spoiling them with the pricey, gluten free stuff, while you eat tofu off the floor. But even this high regard for domestic animals is nothing close to the level of attention paid by various individuals, cultures, groups and organizations on this list to animals you don't really need to encounter if you don't want to.

Baby-led weaning is the simple concept of introducing solid foods to your baby in its whole state, rather than spoon-feeding as a puree. The idea is to teach baby about eating and self regulation through the exploration of the colors, textures, and flavors of food. As a baby becomes naturally less dependent on exclusively breastfeeding, he simultaneously becomes more interested in food. This is a natural progression when babies are allowed to explore with their food. A baby who is allowed to self-feed will also never over eat, hence creating healthy eating habits for life. This is in lieu of the concept of "clean your plate" (despite a full belly), which is ingrained in so many of us adults, stemming from childhood.
Baby-led weaning is simple. It requires no pureeing or spoon-feeding, and usually very little preparation. Simply feed your baby healthy fruits and vegetables, prepared the way you would eat them, cut to suitable finger-food size. As your baby grows, branch out into healthy food combinations, and add a larger variety of foods such as grains and meats in addition to fruits and veggies. Just as we should be limiting our salt intake, limit salt for your little ones, but don't be afraid to experiment with flavors and even spices!
When getting started early on with baby-led weaning, it is usually advised to avoid highly acidic or seedy foods such citrus, strawberries, or kiwi which can be tough on digestion for little babies. Also take care and use caution if your family has known food allergies. There are so many good choices to start with. Here are just a few suggestions to give you ideas!
