You can now be a bit more adventurous. Many of the foods you cook for the rest of the family can now be served to your baby. Start introducing mince or pureed meat. Red meat and liver are good sources of iron. Well cooked eggs, fish or alternatives such as tofu and pulses can also be used.
If your baby has teeth, encourage chewing by offering finger foods such as rice cakes. Supervise your child to make sure that he doesn’t choke.
