  • Solids before babies turn one are for the experience of eating, not for nutrition. Great early foods are avocado, baked sweet potato, pureed peas, etc.


    The best book on feeding babies, toddlers and their families is called Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. You should be able to find it at your local library. There is some great information on the website:
