Should the food our kids and pets eat be so different from what we feed ourselves? Some people say yes, but a growing number of consumers is arguing the other end of the spectrum. WBEZ food podcasters Louisa Chu and Monica Eng explore the ever changing world of baby and pet food on the latest episode of their Chewing the Fat podcast. Among others they talk to food historian Amy Bentley of New York University about her book her new book Inventing Baby Food. They join us here today to talk about the different conceptions of baby and toddler food across the world and they'll tell us why we could learn a little something from other cultures.
