Mixed vegetables or single fruits?

Also some mixed vegetables include corn, how do you make sure your lo isn't allergic when corn doesn't come as single vegetable?

  • I think veggies first. You don't want to start out with sweets right away. You also start with one at a time for 3-4 days in a row to watch for reactions. I believe you can find more info on net.

  • In my Walmart, they sell corn by itself.  It's like creamed corn.  I introduced veggies first.  So corn isn't available by itself but are green beans, peas, etc?  If your little one eats those by themself and doesn't have an allergic reaction then has an allergic reaction when given the mixed veggies, it's the corn.  Power of deduction.

  • It used to be tradition that you started veggies first to prevent a baby from getting a "sweet tooth", but it really doesn't matter. I have 5 kids and I started all of them out on the same foods in the same order - they have totally different taste buds.

  • They say to do veggies first, but I think I did fruits. Because I started with cereal and mixed fruit with it.

  • i started my DD out on veggies first and fruit for dessert. I started with sweet potato and then peas then carrots with broccoli and then corn once all those were fine i started mixing the veggies all together she loved it.

    It all depend son what YOU want to do.
    If your child has an allergic reaction then you take to their pediatrician.
