Your baby is just starting to eat solid food, but the question remains what do you actually feed them?
You want them to get all of the nutrients they need, and still enjoy their food.
Jane McEvoy from The Apprentice has recently set up her own compant called Harry's Little World, which is a premium organic and fresh soup concept business. It is 100% organic, allergen free, fresh baby and toddler soups.
Jane shares her tips on healthy eating for your baby:
• Introduce new foods at the rate of one per week, so you can pinpoint any allergies
• Make sure your child has accepted most vegetables and fruits before trying any meats
• It’s best to steam vegetables and fruits to retain as much vitamins and minerals as possible, as opposed to boiling
• Use as thinners: water left from steaming, breast milk, formula, cow's milk, yogurt, broth or apple juice
• Use as thickeners: wheat germ, whole-grain cereal, cottage cheese, farmer cheese, cooked egg yolks, yogurt, mashed white potato or sweet potato
• Avoid giving uncooked onion to your baby as it may cause wind
• Try giving your baby organic vegetables as much as possible as they are pesticide free
• Try to give your baby or child vegetables like carrots, sweet potato, broccoli, and parsnip as they have the most nutritional content
