Babies grow fast, and before you know it, they can already eat a lot of solid foods. As early as four months, you can already start giving solid foods to your babies so they can get more nutrition that their body needs. Here are the best foods for babies that you can give them even at an early age.
Of course, it is not advisable that you provide them with the blueberries as is. What you can do is mash it and serve with a little yoghurt. It is excellent for the babies because it contains a lot of antioxidants. It can help in improving the eyesight and brain development of your child.
During this time on your baby’s development, their bones are rapidly growing. They need a lot of calcium so that they will have healthy bones. Give your child plain yoghurt. Do not opt for flavored yoghurts that contain a lot of artificial flavors. If you want to incorporate some fruits, it’s fine as long as you will use fresh fruits. You can mash or puree it anyway.
3. Winter squash
The eyes of your baby are still developing at this point. Make sure to give them foods that are high in beta-carotene to help them with their eyesight. Winter squash also contains vitamin c that can boost the immune system of your babies.
4. Dark leafy vegetables
Most kids grow up with no appetite for vegetables. The dark leafy green veggies are good for your children because there are multiple vitamins that you can get from it. You can start with an ample amount of these veggies that way the babies will be able to tolerate the taste of it.
There should be no problem in giving them the fruits, but the veggies are another case. Most babies don’t like the taste of it. One advice I can give based on experience is that you should let them see you eat it first and be vocal on how good it taste. Don’t ever show them a facial expression that what you’re eating is something that doesn’t taste good.
