I'm so ecstatic that the First Foods: Nutrition Guide and the Magic Foods for Baby-Led Weaning infographic have been so widely shared and downloaded! I spent a lot of time researching and compiling the information found in those two resources so I'm pleased that so many parents are finding them helpful in their weaning journeys. I'm incredibly passionate about raising healthy eaters, and I know how much work it can be for parents to learn the ins and outs of introducing solids.
When I began our baby-led weaning journey with wee man, the ONE thing I couldn't seem to find was some solid advice on what to serve on any given day to meet his nutritional needs. As wee man began to scoff more and more food every day, I was never confident that what I was offering was what his little body needed to power all the growth he was going through.
So, my friends, I present you with this infographic, based on advice from a number of brilliant resources including NHS and the American Academy of Pediatrics. While I'm most definitely not a nutritionist or dietician, I'm an excellent internet sleuth and I've based the following on the best evidence I could dig up. Of course you should always consult with your GP or health visitor to check what's best for your child.
