At around six months of age, your baby may be showing you signs that they’re ready to graduate from milk to real food. 

Sounds simple enough … but unless you want to wear their meal there is a little bit involved in this milestone transition.

Food preparation rules when bub moves to solids:

  • Wash and remove peel, pips, stalks and husks from fruit or vegetables, then cut into evenly sized pieces so they all cook in the same amount of time.
  • Allow food to cool before pureeing – it needs to be fairly sloppy in the early days. To thin it, mix in a little breastmilk or use the water in which you cooked the vegetables.
  • Some commercial rice cereals may cause constipation, so mix them with lots of fruit and veg.
  • Always test the temperature of baby food before offering it.
  • Never reheat in a microwave because it heats unevenly.
  • As your baby’s appetite increases, use a food processor or blender to puree larger quantities.
