Newsletter misinformation?

Asked December 29, 2016, 5:56 PM EST

Today's eight month newsletter contained some surprisingly odd recommendations to avoid spinach and other greens due to nitrates. This appears to be well out of step with the recommendations of the AAP, which recommend that greens be avoided until the baby is four to six months of age, as the digestive tract has evolved sufficiently by then to allow safe digestion of spinach, collards, etc. What is the basis of your recommendation?

Please check the newsletter to determine where it was printed & contact that group. It is not published by this online system so I am unaware as to what newsletter you are referring.
