Introduction to Baby’s First Foods
I have had so many requests from Mums asking me what foods I feed Issy and Grace when we started to introduce foods, and now I am starting to introduce foods to Grace I thought it was time to put this chart up.
Ive always believed in food is fun until 1, and I also breastfeed Issy until she was two years old – I also plan to do the same with Grace.
I’ve also done a mixture of baby led weaning and puree food at times – like green smoothies etc.
Below is a list of the foods and at what age we introduced them.
Avocado was the girls first food followed by Bananam
- Banana – Can be mucus forming so start small.
- Squash ( steamed)
- Paw Paw
- Coconut pulp ( blended)
- Coconut water
- Flax Seeds ( ground – mixed with blended apple or fruit)
- Spirulina (tiny amounts)
- pumpkin ( Steamed)
- Sweet Potato ( steamed)
- Chia seeds
- Kiwi Fruit
- Flaxseed Oil 1/3 teaspoon each meal = 1 teaspoon over day
- Green Beans
9 months is the perfect age for introducing small green smoothies – I simply used Banana, Spinach and water for a babys first green smoothie – For more information on green smoothies for babies click here
- Brussel Spouts
- Sea Veggies – Dulse
- Dried fruits
- Citrus Fruits
- Almond milk
Cold pressed juices diluted with water. 1/3 juice to 2/3 water.
With regards to Superfoods – I have a chart in my book Raw Food 4 Kids which lists the ages at which they can be introduced and the benefits. You can grab your copy here
