Description

This colourful and clearly presented resource looks at the right time for parents and carers to start introducing solids into a babies diet. This is usually around the age of 6 months, too early and the baby may spit it out, too late and this can affect the healthy development of the baby. The resource provides information on how to start solids, examples of food to be given and food and drinks to avoid.
