sal solid foods


The AAP recommends that an infant not be started on solid foods until after 6 months of age. Many pediatricians still start babies on solids around 4 months of age. This chart accommodates all ages and stages up to 12 months.


Rice and Oatmeal cereals are the least of the allergenic grains and thus most babies are started out with those cereals. You don't HAVE to start with cereal - try avocado instead or banana.


May be served raw after 8 months old – bananas and avocados do NOT need to be cooked ever


Always serve cooked until after 12 months old or when baby can chew well enough so that no choking hazard is present.


Always serve cooked with no pink areas – NEVER give a small baby/child raw meat or fish


NEVER replace breast milk or formula until after 12 months of age – serious health risks are possible.

Never give a child under the age of 2yrs old low fat or skim milk products; whole milk is necessary.
