What baby food should I introduce first?

Solid foods may be introduced in any order. However, puréed meats, poultry, beans and iron-fortified cereals are recommended as first foods, especially if your baby has been primarily breastfed, since they provide key nutrients. Only one new single-ingredient food should be introduced at a time.

What age should baby have 3 meals a day?

This might happen one or two weeks after their first solid tastes, or it might be more like 2 months – that’s OK. However, ideally, by around 9 months of age baby will be eating 3 meals a day – such as breakfast, lunch and dinner with their usual milk in-between.

When should babies start eating 3 meals a day?

When can baby eat bigger pieces of food?

As your child gets more teeth, it may be tempting to let him take bites from a larger piece of food. But it’s best to continue cutting your child’s food into pieces small enough for him to eat safely until around age 4.
