There are three progressive stages to introducing solids to your baby: introduce purees, introduce lumps and finger foods. Below is a collection of our favourite recipes for your baby or toddler, no matter what stage they're in.

From 4 months

When your baby is ready to start taste testing foods, offer your baby their first solids after a breast feed when they are happy, alert and interested. This step usually begins with iron-enriched smooth infant cereals (mixed with pre-boiled water of breast milk), cooked and pureed meats and finely mashed fruit and vegetables.
