The second wee we introduce solids we are still taking it slowly and observing how baby is reacting.
Here are few things to note about this meal plan:
--> 1 oz is approx. 2 tbsp
--> 1 medium apple makes 2 oz of puree
--> 1 medium pear makes 2 oz of puree
--> Your baby may eat less than 2 oz of puree or more, so half way through the week, I recommended to slightly increase the amount your have availble.
--> For finger foods, cut or shape the veggies as close to 3 inch pieces and if possible in a "cylindrical" shape.
--> Aim to have on hand at least 3 to 4 pieces as your baby will still want to explore by squishing and squashing the finger foods and you'll want to make sure you have enough extras to replace the "destroyed" finger food pieces.
Your grocery list for the first week is:
* 3 apples
* 3 butternut squash
* 5-6 pears
I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and a mom of two little munchkins.
In my house, we are introducing solids to my Little Tank and guiding my toddler to be an adventurous eater.
My passion is to help moms nourish their babies and kids. I love teaching introducing solids, help with picky eating and mealtime challenges, guide mom’s through their kid’s allergies or frequent colds and flu!
Growing up I was a very picky eater. If it didn’t look right, smell right, feel right it just was not going into my mouth. I later learned I was a supertaster, which basically means I have more tastebuds and taste everything (especially bitter) more intensely. So trust me when I tell you that I KNOW what your little one is going through because I felt the exact same anxiety and pressure to eat they do. And as a mom, I know the pressure is on to get those little monkey butts to eat!
My Baby's First Bites program helps moms introduce solids to their babies without the confusion, overwhelm or worry that they will "miss something". For more information, you can check out the details here.
