In Part 1, we reviewed some baby first foods. Here are some other great first food choices.
Mashed ripe banana is an excellent first food for baby. Bananas are nutritious and very easy for your baby to digest. Many other cultures use bananas exclusively as their first baby food. Try to buy only organically-grown bananas.
Mashed, ripe avocado is also an excellent first food for baby. Avocados are extremely nutritious and contains the fatty acids that your baby needs for brain development.
Cooked, mashed sweet potato is another favorite first food for babies who are at least 4 months old. It, too, is highly nutritious and filled with beta carotene (vitamin A).
Yogurt is a good first baby food for babies who are at least 6 months old. Whole milk yogurt, the plain variety, instead of low-fat yogurt, is recommended because your baby needs fats. Remember that yogurt, in the under 1 year old, should not be fed in place of breastmilk or formula, but may be fed as an additional first food.
