After your baby gets used to taking soft food from a spoon, you should introduce a variety of new foods one at a time. Choose foods that are rich in iron.

  • Try foods of different textures according to your baby's ability to chew;
  • Breastmilk or formula milk is still his main food. As he eats more solid food, he will require less milk;
  • Babies younger than 1 year old accept new food more readily. Take this opportunity to let him experience a wide range of foods.
