So you’re starting solids

So you’re starting solids

The current guidelines on introducing solids recommends babies be between 4 to 6 months. Some babies are ready at the 4 month mark, while other babies may still need a little extra encouragement around 6 months. Check out this post for my three “T’s” to starting solids with your infant.

Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable. It has its own distinct taste, but it can easily be paired with spicy, savory, and even sweeter flavours. Being a cruciferous vegetable, cauliflower is very hearty, and can stand up to sauces and dressings without becoming too soft or mushy, which makes it perfect to use in place of rice.

Spicing up your infant's diet

Spicing up your infant's diet

The foods that are typically introduced to infants around 6 months of age, are pureed, soft, and mushy in consistency, and they tend to be quite bland (from an adult's perspective). To your infant, these bland foods awake their taste buds that have been happily feeding breastmilk and/or formula for the last 6 months. Infants may dive in and become an excellent eating, while others are a little more cautious of these new foods, flavours, and textures, and not be as willing to open up for them.
