"How do I know if my baby is ready to start solids?”
"What if my baby has a food allergy?"
"What if my child is a picky eater?"
Ensuring that your child is well fed and is absorbing sufficient nutrients from a variety of foods is critical to their short- and long-term health, growth, and development.
The introduction of solid foods is often, mistakenly, equated to weaning which can cause your baby to receive the wrong balance of nutrition for their age.
Additionally, figuring out how to get your child to happily eat a variety of foods and try new flavors can feel like an impossible challenge at times!
Picky eating is so common that is has become almost expected of toddlers and young children. Research shows that the habits that result in picky eating start early and tend to stay for years.
This means that parents need to start early to prevent picky eating, ideally from the first introduction of solid foods.
Mealtime battles don't have to be your norm.
