"Um, no, it looks like apple juice, but it's homemade chicken broth."
OK so this conversation didn't really take place, but I imagine people assume it's apple juice in my little one's sippy cup LOL! I don't know too many moms who put chicken broth in their little one's sippy cup, do you?
Here's the story. My ten month old always wants what his older brother is drinking. Problem is, we're still going strong nursing and I don't want him filling up on water or juice when he should only be drinking breast milk at this point as far as fluids go. But the poor boy feels so left out and screams something terrible for a sip of big brother's drink. So since I try to make homemade chicken broth to drink throughout the week every week, I decided to let him sip on some broth in this super cool eco-friendly sippy cup when the occasion arises. After all, chicken broth *is* highly nutritious. Check this out (from Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions, full text here):
