stage 2 & 3 foods
Simple baby foods provides a list of the best foods for weaning your baby from 8 to 12 months of age. Fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins!
8 months to 10 months
Stage 2 foods are for babies between from 8-10 months old. The amount of breastmilk and/or formula will decrease as the amount of solids your baby intakes increases. Stage 2 foods should have a bit of texture being either mashed or pulsed. Also, keep small raw chunks of raw fruit and cooked vegetable mix (pea, corn carrot) make great finger foods, so that baby learns to feed him/herself. It is important that your baby gets enough iron during this stage as his/her natural reserves start running out at this point. Iron-fortified cereals and protein are important during this stage. Salt and sugar should never be introduced to be a baby in the first year. Always consult the advice of your pediatrician.
Foods to introduce:
cereals & grains: buckwheat, flax, pasta, quinoa
fruits: blueberries, cantaloupe, cranberries, figs, grapes (cut in quarters), kiwi, papaya
- Fruits can now be served raw. You can grate them or cut them into small pieces
