It’s suggested to wait until 6 months prior to introducing solids, to ensure baby is developmentally ready and to encourage breastfeeding when possible until 6 months. If baby is showing signs of being ready to start solids prior to 6 months of age, you can experiment with cereals and simple purees, such as Baby Gourmet’s iron-fortified infant cereal, or unsweetened fruit and veggie purées, however the latest expert advice encourages waiting until 6 months.

Salmon

Avocado

Banana

Baby is ready to start solids at 6 months. Offer iron-rich foods, such as Baby Gourmet’s Iron-fortified infant cereal, at least 2X/day. Be sure foods are soft enough to break apart in baby’s mouth easily and avoid choking hazards. Introduce common allergens like peanut butter (spread thinly), low-mercury, deboned fish, and cooked egg in a safe environment. Open cup for sips of water is recommended (with help).

Shredded Chicken

Grated Carrot

Pear

Baby is mastering the “pincer grip” and has been exposed to a variety of foods now. It’s still important to continue offering iron-rich foods at least twice daily. You can test out smaller soft pieces of soft food, such as Baby Gourmet’s “Tasty Textures” savoury meals, Plus Puree’s and nutritious snacking products including Mushies, Puffies and Finger Foods. Start to teach baby how to use the spoon independently and continue using open cup for water.

Spaghetti

Cheese Cubes

Broccoli

Baby is participating in family meals and enjoying a wide variety of foods and textures. They’re comfortable with self-feeding and mastering the pincer-grip for smaller pieces. Baby should be close to self-feeding with a spoon and/or pouch. Baby Gourmet’s savoury meals are a good choice. Wait until around 12 months to introduce whole cow’s milk— and try Baby Gourmet’s Shakers nutritional shake for added vitamins, minerals & protein as your child grows.
