First Foods

What food should I feed first?
The best food to start with is a single-grain baby cereal. Rice cereal is best because it is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction in young babies. For information on preparation, please refer to the directions on the product package.

Gradually increase the amount of cereal you feed until you're feeding twice a day—in the morning at breakfast and again at dinner. When your baby is eating from a spoon fairly well, you can reduce the amount of breast milk, water, or formula normally added to the cereal.

What foods come next?
Once baby is used to cereal, you can start to feed fruits and vegetables. Begin by introducing 1 to 2 teaspoons at each meal, after baby has had some cereal.

Most experts recommend that you introduce a single new food at a time and feed it for several days before trying another new food. This will make it easier to identify the culprit if there is a food sensitivity or allergy. If your baby has diarrhea, gets a rash, or vomits, do not feed the suspect food again until you have consulted your health care professional.

After baby is accustomed to fruits and vegetables, protein foods can be introduced. Some authorities suggest that you wait until your child is 6 months of age before you introduce minced meat and poultry to the diet.
