Intro To Baby Food:
It is important to introduce solid baby food slowly to a baby in the first year. This is because young children are not yet able to properly chew their foods, and will often chomp on small bits of food. Some of the most common choking hazards include cylinder-shaped, round, and even seeds. It is essential that your child is seated when eating and you should always supervise him or her during mealtime. Moreover, you should prepare soft foods with high-fat content and avoid offering fatty or stringy meat.
To prepare food for a baby, make sure you cook it as soon as possible. Try to steam, bake, or freeze the food so that the nutrients are kept intact. But do not serve raw fruits and vegetables to an infant who is under four months old. The nitrate content in these foods can cause anemia in babies. Hence, it is best to buy pre-prepared pureed food. And when you are preparing meals for your baby, keep a list of your food choices so that you know what to give.
