What should babies eat as their first food?
Hello, I am a 26 years old female. What should I give my baby as a first food? He is 3 months old. As months are passing by, I think in a few months I should start solids. Can anyone tell me what should I give to him? What should babies eat as their first food?
@ishvika Hello, Solid foods may be introduced in any order. However, puréed meats, poultry, beans, and iron-fortified cereals are recommended as first foods, especially if your baby has been primarily breastfed since they provide key nutrients. Only one new single-ingredient food should be introduced at a time. Softer textures are very important when first introducing foods. Infants usually start with pureed or mashed foods around six months. As infants develop chewing and motor skills, they are able to handle items like soft pieces of fruit and finger foods. As the child ages, a variety of healthful foods is encouraged.
