Lockdown has had a huge impact on how we will socialise in the future.
For many of us it's been a difficult time not being able to meet up with family and friends. A lot of people have had to get used to trying to work from home with their babies and toddlers at their feet.
Starting to wean can be a bewildering experience. It takes a little time for them to learn to take food from a spoon and then figure out how to move it from the front of the tongue to the back of the mouth. I always recommend to start weaning from 5 ½ months. This will give your little one time to get used to the idea of food before they are introduced to a wider variety from 6 months onward.
At 9 months your baby will start to become hungrier between meals. Your little one will now be ready for 1 to 2 healthy snacks each day. The good news is that preparing snacks for your weaning baby doesn’t have to be time consuming – in just a few minutes you can whip up a healthy treat your baby will love! Below are the best healthy snack ideas for your baby from 9 months onward.
We've put together a list of weaning recipes to support our Mummy Cooks stage 1 weaning guide. We refer to stage 1 as the first 14 days of weaning your baby and involves introducing runny purées to your baby. We recommend starting weaning any time after five months so that you are well set-up to introduce lots of variety and texture from six months.
