List of first foods for BLW
First of all it must be said that the baby can eat practically all foods from 6 months . With the exception of dairy products, sweets and salt, which should only be used from the child’s first year onwards.
However, natural foods that include all fruits and vegetables can and should be included in the diet from the beginning.
See the list of foods best accepted by babies who practice BLW:
- Cooked carrot;
- Cooked beets;
- Baked or baked sweet potatoes;
- Boiled broccoli;
- Chuchu cooked or braised;
- Pumpkin cooked or roasted;
- Banana dwarf / cockatiel;
Don’t forget to check the safe cuts for BLW, to avoid choking and facilitate autonomous feeding .
You can also offer rice, beans, pasta and meat from 6 months old . However, these foods require special care in the form of presentation. Make cakes with the beans, offer bean broth in a small cup, and prefer pasta in shapes such as a shell or tie (spaghetti can be dangerous at this stage).
However, for the first few times, prefer foods that are easier to handle , such as those in the list above. This way the baby is freer to explore the foods and you are calmer to better understand the method and how to include new foods for your baby.
Always ask for the help of the Pediatrician and/or the Nutritionist to accompany the food introduction.
