When can baby eat adults food
Babies can start eating adult foods when they are around 8-12 months old and have developed the physical ability to chew and swallow solid foods.
 However, it’s important to keep in mind that babies have different nutritional needs than adults, and their diets should be tailored to meet those needs.

When introducing adult foods to a baby, it’s important to consider the following:

  1. Texture: Choose soft, finely minced, or pureed versions of adult foods to make them easier for the baby to chew and swallow.

  2. Allergens: Avoid introducing common allergens, such as peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, and eggs, until the baby is at least 1 year old.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
