I hope by now you have established 3 meals a day. So far I have learned 5 top tips that I’m going to share with you:
Avoid overfeeding, but offer your baby a dessert like a fruit puree if they’re still hungry (Mia really loves almost everything I put in front of her that I’m asking myself how much is enough).
Milk is still an important source of nutrition so keep up with your baby’s usual milk feeds.
If your baby is too tired by dinner time, try giving them their main meal at lunch.
Try out new recipes, but still give food from previous steps, including ones they didn’t like first time (it can take many attempts before a baby accepts a new taste).
Once your baby has mastered puree, try mashing a recipe to create lumpier textures.
Today we made Salmon, Yellow Pepper and Sweet Corn, super easy and fast recipe (check below).
