When To Give August Produce- Easy Baby Meals

 

The above-given chart is based on what I gave my daughter after consulting her Pediatrician. Every individual child is different, so what worked for me may not work for you.

It’s always better to talk to your pediatrician before introducing new foods, especially if your child suffers from allergies.

Keeping this in mind, let’s go through the details of When To Give:

6 Months +

Apple, Mint, Peas, and Pear.

These delicious fruits and vegetables are in season, and they can make a great starter food for your little ones. They are easy to digest and are full of essential nutrients.

Making a simple puree and mixing it with baby cereal can make a delicious meal for your little one. Adding herbs and spices like cinnamon or mint can give these purees a boost of extra flavor and aroma.

8 Months +

Cantaloupe, Chives, Cucumber, Thyme, Oregano, Rosemary, Peach, Plums, Summer Squash, Watermelon, and Zucchini.

Cantaloupe, Cucumber, and Watermelon are few of the best No Cook options for your babies. Just make a puree, and they turn into a delicious summer meal.

Herbs like Chives, Thyme, Oregano, and Rosemary make a great addition to your baby food making list. A little bit of these herbs go a long way in giving the purees an enticing aroma and flavor. Nobody likes bland food.

Summer Squash and zucchini, when paired with herbs, turn into a wholesome meal.

10 Months +

Onions, Carrots, Mandarines and Sage

Onions and carrots make a nutritious addition to your baby’s diet. A little addition of sage to any soup or puree can take that meal to the next level.

Mandarines make excellent finger food. Just make sure they are cut into baby-friendly pieces.

One year +

Cabbage, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Corn, Grapes, and Grapefruit.

I introduced raw tomatoes to my after her one year birthday. When she as actually able to chew the little tomato pieces.

For rest of the vegetables too, I waited till her one year birthday before introducing them to her daily diet.

Every individual child is different, so what worked for me may not work for you.

It’s always better to talk to your pediatrician before introducing new foods, especially if your child suffers from allergies.

    This is a great post for new Moms — I used to make my own baby food too (a long time ago). I didn’t give my daughter fruits until we had already established a real love of vegetables. Didn’t think there was a big problem with getting her to like “sweet” things. LOL.

    Some of those look quite tasty enough for adults! Now you have me thinking about pears with sweet potatoes – I’ve use apples, but not pears…
