What should baby's first food be?
So Day 1 of baby led weaning journey is looming and I need to decide on baby's food. It's meant to be easy and baby eats what you eat. From what I've read first food suggestions are steamed carrots, cut up cucumber, toast fingers, crinkle-cut bits of mango or even spaghetti bolognaise or mashed potato if that's what the family is having. As long as you're not adding salt and it’s soft and/or crumbly, cut into small, manageable pieces (baby fist-size) and not on the list of foods that pose a choking risk, it’s on the baby-led weaning menu.
As big brother had a reaction with eggs when he was 7 months old I'm very reluctant to give LO a combination of foods in case of allergies. So....let's see what I have in the fridge for Day 1! No preparation required.
