Solid Foods

Good nutrition is very important for infants during the first year of life because this is a time for huge growth. Solid foods should complement, not replace, breastmilk or formula in the infant's diet. Understanding how and when to introduce new foods, read hunger cues and select age appropriate foods are essential for a successful transition. Below are links to handouts on introducing solid foods to the infants in your care.

Please remember that none of the following information replaces the advice from a health care professional.
