As a first-time mother, Nichola Buckley wanted her daughter to taste the good things in life.

“I am a huge foodie,” said Buckley, an El Granada resident. “I was introducing solids to her and I was so excited to give her food. I did no research — I’m not one of those perfect Instagram moms. I just fed her, and all of my friends around me were, like, ‘You can’t give her that! What if she chokes? What if she’s allergic?’”
