Whether you begin your baby’s solid food journey at 6 months or before, one thing’s for certain: your 6 month old doesn’t need much solid food. She’ll be getting by just fine on breastmilk or formula. However, she can start sampling a few fruits and vegetables, and enjoying small amounts of solid foods.
Infant cereal will be the main thing your 6 month old baby eats. You can purchase ready-made, powdered cereals at the grocery store, but you can also make your own (for a lot less money!) Visit our Baby Cereal Recipes for step-by-step instructions on how to make your baby’s rice and oatmeal cereal from scratch.
Visit our Baby Food Fruit Recipes to see a sampling of delicious fruit purees and your 6 month old baby is sure to love. From mashed avocados to homemade applesauce to pear puree, we have the recipes that’ll give your baby the tastiest possible introduction to fruit.
Visit our Baby Food Vegetable Recipes for a listing of veggie purees and mashes that’ll give your 6 month old baby the healthy start he needs. At 6 months, your baby is ready for sweet potatoes, squash, and green beans; use our simple recipes to get started on turning these veggies into yummy purees!
Remember to feed your 6 month old single-ingredient meals; at this age, you want her to get used to the taste of individual foods before you start combining them. Remember, too, that your 6 month old baby needs smooth, runny purees; she’s not ready to mash food with her gums quite yet.
