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
Hey! I’m Ana!
I’m a Baby and Kids Holistic Nutritionist + a Picky Eating Coach, but my most important role, is that of a mommy to my two toddlers (both boys).
I work with parents who have babies & kids with feeding challenges using the SOS Approach to Feeding.
I was also a child picky eater … and not only do I get YOU as a mom, but I also know what your little munchkin is feeling and thinking.
Combined with my studies as a holistic nutritionist, my training in feeding therapy, and my real life experience, I have a very unique approach to feeding your little ones.
You see, 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.
Mehhhh, what a crappy superpower :/. It took me a long time to accept it and work with it. When I was ready to start a family, I finally had the motivation I need to make changes.
If you are looking for a gentle, logical, and nourishing approach to helping your child eat new foods, I have created the I ❤️ Mealtime Club. Enrollment is not always open. You can get notified here and sign up for the 5 Day Picky Eating Email course at the same time.
And if you're wanting to be part of a community where we chat about different ways we nourished our little munchkins, hop inside the Baby and Kids Facebook Community!
Let's #rockmealtime again!
PS. I thought you might want some resources on feeding kiddos.
