Infant Feeding Guide

Post image for Infant Feeding Guide

The first two years of life is a “critical window” for good nutrition, optimal growth and development. It’s the ideal time to introduce your baby to a variety of textures and tastes. Research shows that the more flavors that are introduced early in life the more likely children will accept new foods later on.

At around 6 months of age, breast milk and formula no longer provide enough nutrition to meet your baby’s needs – and developmentally, most babies are ready to start eating solid food. Raise Healthy Eaters’ Infant Feeding Guide consists of the following tutorials below. For more details and up-to-date science on feeding infants and other stages of development, check out my book, Fearless Feeding.
