Every new season has new foods to enjoy and while you may be used to giving your baby the same favourites day after day, the changing seasons are a great time to expand a child’s palate by introducing new foods.
As you’re wandering local farmers markets looking for the most delicious in-season fruits and veggies, your child can become a part of the experience too by trying new vegetable varieties and combinations. Introducing these new textures and flavors serve developmental purposes, as well!
- The subtle smell of a new food, a taste complexity and discovering a new texture is an important step on the path to solid food.
- As they grow older, babies become more selective and “picky,” therefore including a wide variety of foods in their diet as early as possible is important.
- For more information, visit Earth’s Best website and check-out the article Infants’ Unpredictable Palates which discusses the natural progression of the tastes and interests of babies.
And even if your child is too young to eat that scrumptious stuffed spaghetti squash you’ve made, that doesn’t mean he has to miss out on seasonal delights! Earth’s Best Organic has a range of all natural and organic baby food that will let your children experience the best tastes fall has to offer! Choose from flavours like Squash or Sweet Potato, perfect for babies just starting solid food, or branch out with Carrot or Green Bean and Rice baby food for older infants.
All Earth’s Best vegetables are made with organic ingredients grown from the earth without harmful pesticides, so you know the food will be nourishing and delicious. And remember- don’t get discouraged! When introducing a new vegetable to your baby, keep expectations realistically low. Expect the first taste to be spit out, but try again the next day, and the next. More than likely, by the end of the week baby will be eating several spoonfuls.
