When to Introduce New Foods to Your Baby


Are you a new parent who has an infant? Are you wondering about the kind of food that your baby must take in order to be healthy? This article is written to help you with the process of making your baby try new foods. If you have been feeding your baby the same diet for a prolonged period of time, maybe it is the time for you to start feeding your baby something else. There are several instances of babies throwing up after eating because they did not like what was being fed to them. There are also instances of babies refusing to eat for precisely the same reason. You may not want to be seen as someone who is forcing the baby to eat what he or she does not like.

There are a variety of ways in which you can make your baby eat different foods without having to compromise on the quality or the safety aspect of the diet. The baby may not necessarily be at risk when you try new foods provided that you take some precautions at the same time. You should be aware of the fact that your baby’s eating habits in the early years would determine the nature of the later year’s habits. Furthermore, the health and well being, not to mention growth in subsequent year is affected by the kind of food that you feed your baby in the early years of infancy. You can try some new foods for your baby instead of following the same routine.

For starters, you should try giving your baby the same diet but in different colors. As we all know, babies are attracted to colors very well and it is important for you and your baby if he or she likes what is being fed. So, try to get the cereals in different colors and feed them to your baby. Alternately, you may even get the cereals in different tastes and flavors, so that there is an impression of variety even if the base diet remains the same. It is important not to lose track of the base diet like cereals and greens that are fed to the baby in the early years. But, at the same time, you should realize that there has to be some variety in the diet that you feed your baby.

Remember the saying that variety is the spice of life. Without literally giving spices to the baby, you can nonetheless spice up your baby’s diet by switching the kind of foods that your baby eats. This means that you need not give up the cereals and the greens. Just like that, you can try different combinations of the same for the baby to grow healthy and like what he or she is eating. Finally, ensure that your baby gets enough nutrition without losing the appetite for food. For this, you have to innovate in the kind of food that you feed your baby. Be creative with the diet without compromising on the quality.
