Baby Solid Introduction: WEEK 1 & 2

Updated: 3 days ago

This by no means is what YOU need to do, just me sharing the foods I selected (along the help of my pediatric nutritionist Dra Mafer).


Below I will tell you why I chose these foods, but remember you can switch any food for your food of choice in that group instead! You can also change the 5 group order, that does not matter at ALL (what matters is what foods you pick first based on flavor intensity + high fiber + high water consistency + exact vitamins in each food that help brain & eye development, much needed in these first months of solids).


For more info make sure to read the other posts first

Why 3 meals a day, 5 days x food


WEEK 1 FOODS


Banana: High in folic acid, iron, zinc, colin & luthein

- You can introduce as puree & pieces of mature and soft

- I add water to puree to make it more of a puree and not alter the flavor


Avocado: High in folic acid, iron, zinc, colin, luthein omega 3 & zeaxanthin

You can introduce as puree & pieces

- I add water to puree to make it more of a puree and not alter the flavor


Oats: Make sure they are non gmo, sugar free and fortified with iron

High in folic acid, iron and zinc

- I offer as cereal puree with water so it does not alter flavor


Butternut Squash: High in water (85%), folic acid, luthein & zeaxanthin

You can offer puree and steamed pieces

- You can store the puree for 4-7 days (but I make a batch for the 3 meals x day daily)


Egg: High in folic acid, iron, zinc, colin, luthein omega 3 & zeaxanthin

- I puree it with water for more liquid consistency + also offer scrambled as pieces


The last 3 days are the same because egg is an allergen and no new food needs to be introduced.


WEEK 2 FOODS

The last 3 days are the same because salmon is an allergen and no new food needs to be introduced.


Kiwi: high in fiber, perfect to help with any constipation. Plus high in folic acid, luthein & zeaxanthin

- If it’s mature & big enough, you can introduce a piece at this stage too, puree is also easy!


Flaxseed Oil: one of the most important healthy fats for proper development during this stage!

- Since it’s in oil form make sure to add it to another group (don’t introduce on its own) I like to add it on top of the veggie (on the steamed veggie or puree)


Quinoa: high in folic acid, luthein, colin & zeaxanthin

- Make sure it’s organic, non gmo

- I like to make my own puree, later on you can give as is for a different texture too!


Carrot: although cooked carrots may cause constipation, it’s one of the key foods to introduce in the early stages too due to its high nutrient content. this is why it’s great that we are combining (individually but same meal) with kiwi, for example.

- I introduce as puree first, as they grow steamed carrots are ok too, not raw yet.


Salmon: It’s an allergen so it needs to be introduced early and three days with no other new food! It’s high in all the key nutrients too, so important: folic acid, iron, zinc, colin, luthein omega 3 & zeaxanthin.

- Make sure it’s very cooked, not raw, you can give it in puree or cooked shredded pieces.
