Moms are talking about: Baby Food Snacks

It’s not unusual for a baby to eat only one major meal a day, with the rest of his food coming from snacking.  Snacks are necessary in a baby’s diet and should consist of smaller portions of the same healthy foods that are part of larger meals. A baby may not begin eating three baby-sized meals until he is 10 months old, although he may start as early as 4 months.

When Should Snacks Be Offered to Your Super Baby During the Day?

Snacks should be offered at scheduled, predictable times every day and not at random.  Snacks should be eaten in the feeding area, as main meals are, because they ARE meals.
