The introduction solid food is an important stage in your baby's development. It is an exciting and challenging time for both parents and babies. Remember to go according to your baby's pace, because all children are different and progress at their own pace.
When to start
Most babies are ready for solid foods from 6 months. Here's when — and how — to make the transition from breastmilk or formula to solid foods. It is however important to know that from around 6 months your child's nutrient stores and requirements are no longer met by breastmilk/ formula alone, particularly when it comes to iron and zinc.
That is why the introduction of solids can help to ensure your baby receives all the vitamins and minerals he or she needs to grow and develop into a healthy child.
