Feeding baby

Feeding baby

Breast milk is still the best milk for infants in this age group. However, while breast milk or formula are still important for your baby during this period, solids will start to take on an increasing role. Each baby has their own special needs and requirements. The following information is intended as a guide only, and if you have any particular queries, please consult your Health Professional for advice.

After six months

Once your baby is six months of age, and has already been introduced to solids, you can add a selection of new textures and tastes to your baby’s diet, such as:

  • Infant muesli, wheat-based infant cereal, porridge made from oatmeal or rolled oats.
  • Iron-rich foods – lamb or chicken livers, kidney, beef, lamb, venison, pork, chicken.
  • Cooked egg yolk.
  • Gravy or liquid from meat casseroles, or home-made meat or vegetable soups or stock, mixed with vegetables.
  • Yam, cauliflower, broccoli, taro, swede, puha, bok choy, green beans, parsnip, beetroot (cooked).
  • Melon, plum (remove skins and seeds). Raw persimmon (scooped out soft pulp or peeled wedges if firmer).
  • Dried fruit – prunes or apricots, cooked to soften, then drained. Serve with other fruit or infant cereals.
  • Toast fingers, rusks.
