First Foods for baby

Start with baby rice mixed with breast or formula milk. Then gradually introduce other foods such as puréed fruit and vegetables and other baby cereals.

Bananas and Papaya can just be mashed or blended and don't need any cooking. Choose ripe bananas. Baby rice can also be added to any fruit. Try this with anything your baby isn't too keen on. A blender is pretty much essential for preparing baby food.
