Most of you love food and eating, and hopefully you can pass this onto your little one. Many parents find starting solids overwhelming or stressful at first, we are hoping this information helps to make this process fun. A few key points:
4-6 months: Tastes of fruits and vegetables, let baby have as much as he/ she wants, offer food 1-2 times per day. It is not necessary to start solids before 6 months but if your baby is showing that they want it, feel free to give!
6-9 months: Fruits, vegetables, meats, bread, pasta, dairy, eggs, fish, cereals… Everything and anything other than honey. With eggs, start with the yolk and if they tolerate it you can offer the whole thing. Start slow, introducing one new thing at a time. As your child tolerates it, offer chunkier and chunkier things. Around 8-9 months some finger foods
9-12 months: Start to transition away from purees onto more finger foods and table foods. By 12 months most of his/ her nutrition should come from food rather than milk.
