Before we can eat like us, baby must have his own menu. Here are ten foods to offer him first to avoid nutritional deficiencies while varying the pleasures.
Cereal rich in iron
Before the age of 6 months, babies are breastfed and absorb iron from milk very well. Milk formulas also contain a lot of iron. It is after dietary diversification that it is necessary to ensure that babies have plenty of iron in their diet. To achieve this, you can turn to baby cereals which contain 45% of the recommended iron intake. Serve plain or use as an ingredient in pancakes or muffins, if your baby doesn't want them anymore.
To add iron to your baby's diet, chicken liver is the most effective meat. It can be served once a week, from the age of 6 months. We also have mash recipes that contain it. From the age of 10 months, you can also introduce beef or pork liver.
Thepeas contain less iron than spinach, but they also contain a lot and are very popular with babies with their mild and almost sweet taste. They also contain vitamins A, B and C and folic acid. Kale is also one of those nutritious, iron-packed greens.
Sweet potatoes are a good source of potassium, vitamin C, fiber and beta-carotene. In addition, their sweet taste is a delight for babies, whether in well-cooked pieces or mashed potatoes.
Broccoli contains beta-carotene, folic acid, iron, potassium and fiber. It is an excellent food for babies, as long as they accept its particular taste…
Did you know that the avocado is a fruit and not a vegetable? It contains a lot of protein and good fats. Since avocados are filling, serve them on the side so they don't steal the show from other foods.
Bananas are rich in B vitamins, fiber, potassium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus and iron. They are nutritious and help reduce diarrhea, without constipating. These are fruits which quickly give an impression of satiety and which are eaten well with the fingers when they are cut into slices. We can serve it to our baby without moderation. If you instead choose tocrush, you can add a little lemon juice to prevent your mash from turning black.
Adding dehydrated fruits like dates, raisins and dehydrated cranberries to baby's menu is another easy and delicious way to boost iron intake.
Fava beans and beans
If your baby does not eat meat, you can add broad beans and beans to his menu. They are full of iron and easily added to many recipes. The proof that you can slip it everywhere: you can even add white beans to this cookie recipe
Lentils are an antioxidant. They are high in fiber, iron, B vitamins and folic acid and are among the easiest legumes to digest. For your baby to enjoy, try this carrot lentil recipe.
Eggs are full of goodness. Full of iron and protein, they are also rich in zinc and vitamins A, D, E and B12.
Smooth, inviting and full of flavor, yogurt is a wonderful dessert for babies. It will give them calcium, protein and phosphorus. Better to choose a regular yogurt than a fat-free yogurt. It is also preferable to choose plain yogurt and addpounded field berries than buying fruit yogurts, sweeter.
Enriched or whole grain bread
When choosing bread for your family, think about your baby and choose breads that are whole, high in fiber and contain more iron than others.
When you choose the firstbreakfast cereals that your child will eat whole, choose cereals that are higher in iron and minerals and lower in sugar. Nutrios cereals and those similar to them, sold under other names, are good in this regard. Corn Flakes and Weetabix are other great choices that are he althier and less sweet than others on the market.
Firm cheeses make great snacks for growing babies who seem insatiable. Cheese contains protein, calcium and riboflavin. Be sure to cut pieces that will reduce the risk of choking, and choose a pasteurized cheese that has a mild flavor, such as mozzarella or Swiss cheese to start with.
Easy to digest, pasta is also easy to love. For fussy babies, fun-shaped pasta that's easy to eat with your fingers becomes a good source of folic acid, iron and B vitamins.
