Milk and Honey Foods | Stage Information

Stage 1

Introducing new food

Yellow Veggies

Recommendation: Breast milk should be baby's main source of nutrition at least 6 months of age

Moving to solids from milk is a big, exciting change for your baby and for you too. As well as meeting their growing nutritional needs, the first stage helps your baby learn how to take food from a spoon and accept simple new tastes. Gradually introduce new foods and flavours as baby accepts the different tastes.

You can start from here on single ingredients such as vegetables and fruit. It is important to introduce one ingredient at a time allowing 4 days for each new food to ensure baby tolerates it. When your baby mastered the food group mentioned above, you can move on to the next stage.

Texture: Puree foods have a thin consistency. They are ideal for your baby to learn how to swallow solid food.

Size/portion: Cube size (30ml) allows only specific single portions to be thawed as needed, rather than large portions that might go to waste. Start with a portion size of 1 cube, 2 x a day.

Fruit: (see fruit)

Stage 2

You and your baby have already taken the first exciting step to introduce the solid foods journey to your baby. Now your baby is ready to explore a wider range of healty new foods including a wider variety of flavours and textures.

Milk is still an important part of your baby's diet and they'll need around 600ml a day. To teach your baby good habits like drinking water instead of juices will make a big difference when growing older.

Once your baby has mastered the first foods, it's time to expand the variety even more.

Your baby is now ready to proceed to the second foods.

Texture: At this stage you can start combining different kinds of meals by adding and mixing one for one single portion in every food group and adding new food groups till your baby experienced a variety of different kind of textures and flavours. This stage is very exiting by creating your own different kind of meals. Keep portion size small.

Stage 3

Your baby's tasted might be getting a little more grown-up now, so that they can cope with quite more rough textured food. However, you can still offer a wide variety of foods. This will help provide a good balance of vitamins and minerals, protein and fats they need to help them grow.

Between 10 months and 8 years old, your child may be less likely to try new foods so it is important to give them lots of variety now. Giving them a lot of different tastes and combinations can also lead to healthier eating habits in the future. Encourage drinking water between meals.

Texture: At this stage your baby is use to most of the variety of flavours and textures. Introducing more rough textures will help continue the development of the chewing skills and speech muscles.

Size/portion: 200ml meal size. Your baby will now be having 3 solid meals of 200ml a day with 1 snack in between.
