Best Super Foods for Baby

In general, the power foods in our guide are appropriate for babies 6 months and older, when prepared according to your baby's eating skills. But talk with your pediatrician before serving eggs, fish, citrus, and yogurt if your baby is less than a year old because these foods can cause an allergic reaction. Certain foods, such as meat, fruit, and vegetable purees, may be gradually introduced earlier than 6 months if your baby is ready for them. Just remember that solid foods of any kind should not be introduced before 4 months of age.

Since babies develop at different rates, ask your pediatrician if you're not sure when to introduce certain foods or which foods are best for your baby.

Feeding a baby is among the top concerns new parents have. How do you know if your baby is getting enough to eat? We'll teach you about formula, and when to start solid foods. We'll also explore bottle feeding, help you with feeding problems, and go in depth about feeding your baby the first year.

Yogurt

Yogurt gives your baby calcium, protein, and phosphorus, which are important for strong, healthy bones and teeth. Yogurt also has probiotics, a type of good bacteria that helps aid digestion and supports the immune system. Babies need fat in their diets, so choose whole-milk yogurt over low-fat or fat-free varieties. Also avoid flavored yogurts, which are high in sugar. If you want to add flavor, you can stir in a little fruit puree. Babies less than a year old may have a reaction to the milk proteins in yogurt, so talk to your pediatrician before serving it to younger babies.
