As your babe gets older, they'll need to start their solids journey to ensure they get enough iron and other essential nutrients for healthy growth and development. For the first six months of life, your little one used iron and nutrients stored in their bodies from when they were in the womb but now it's time to expand their horizons!

Introducing solids is important for helping babies learn how to eat, and encourage lifelong healthy eating habits. This special time is essential in helping develop their teeth and jaws, and building skills that they’ll need later for speech development.

Something that is often overlooked is the important social aspects of meal-time for your mini. Sharing a meal together with their family and loved ones is a great way to bond, enrich their curiosity, and stimulate their language skills.
