When introducing adult foods to a baby, it’s important to consider the following:
Texture: Choose soft, finely minced, or pureed versions of adult foods to make them easier for the baby to chew and swallow.
Allergens: Avoid introducing common allergens, such as peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, and eggs, until the baby is at least 1 year old.
Salt and sugar: Avoid giving babies foods and drinks that are high in salt or sugar, as they can be harmful to their developing bodies.
Portion size: Offer small amounts of adult foods to the baby and gradually increase the amount as they become more comfortable with solid foods.
It’s important to follow the recommendations of a healthcare provider and to watch for signs that the baby is hungry or full.
Overall, it’s important to offer a variety of nutrient-dense foods to support the baby’s growth and development.
