Many parents fail to give their baby the right solid food just because they are very exciting to see her tiny mouth enjoying her first tastes of solid food. Here are some of my recommendations to give to our cute creature:
- Steamed carrot
Many children hate vegetables because their parents did not introduce them to these healthy foods when they were babies. Steamed carrot would become a nice ‘introduction.’ Steam the carrot few minutes longer than before to make it soft enough for her teeth and gum. Do not let it too soft because she needs to hold the food and eat it by herself.
- Steamed broccoli
Your baby is ready for her own adventure to find different smells, textures, and tastes of food. Broccoli will please your baby because it is easy to grip, delicious, and soft enough for their gum and teeth. However, do not gift it right away. You need to steam it until it is soft enough (like the carrot). There is one more thing. Get a cloth ready before your baby eats the broccoli because it will be messy after your child playing with it.
This fruit comes with the perfect softness, nutrient, smell, texture, and taste for your baby. Even with her tiny hands, your baby can grip this fruit easily. You just need to peel the skin and let your baby do the rest.
Even though its outer skin is quite tough, cucumber will give another fun food experience to your baby. Its soft and moist inner content will give your baby a perfect taste she will not forget for her entire life, but before you serve this food to your lovely one, you need to cut it into big chips. Do not make it too big or small or her tiny hands will not be able to grip it. If you like, you can also form the chips to cute forms, such as stars, little animals, and many other things. It will become a great experience for your baby.
- Steamed asparagus
If you are looking for a food with great shape for your baby, then it should be asparagus. Its size, smell, and taste will give your baby an extra pleasure at the dinner table, as she will struggle to put it into her mouth. To make sure your baby gets the perfect taste of this vegetable, steam it for few minutes until it is soft enough for her to chomp.
