Now that baby is ready for solid foods (foods other than breast milk or formula) you may be asking yourself what the safest, healthiest, yummiest food for the little one could be. Make sure your baby is at least 4 months old, and if breastfed, no need to hurry with the solids as munchkin is getting everything he needs for the first 6 months at least, just make sure he’s getting his Vitamin D by getting him outside for a few minutes every day. If the baby is formula fed it would greatly benefit him to start with solids as he will get live enzymes and phytonutrients which he is not getting from formula.

Feeding baby well is important. These are the foundational years of his health for the rest of his life, so be sure to use your intuition as well as research. If baby doesn’t like avocado, no problem, his body doesn’t need it. If he goes crazy for plums, feed him more – there is no need to fight him to try to feed him what you think he needs – work with his tastes and gradually add in more variety as he gets older, and remember – be patient! This is the first time that he will be trying new things, so of course there will be things that may be too strong, too sour, too pungent, too creamy, or too grainy. As long as you understand what his tastes are, you can work with those (i.e. loves creamy – feed bananas/avocadoes, hates cooked vegetable, try adding carrot juice to banana purees etc.)
