Great baby foods

Created by Charlotte in Feeding & Sleeping

Serve the following as purees until your grandchild can pick them up her/himself:


  • Broccoli A must: contains calcium for growing bones and iron for blood
  • Carrots Children love them and they are a great source of vitamin A
  • Peas, beans and pulses Packed with plant proteins and B vitamins; chickpeas and lentils as long as they’re low in sugar and salt
  • Tomatoes Cut into wedges for your grandchild to suck on. The juice contains a lot of vitamin C and lycopene, a powerful antioxidant
  • Apples Leave the peel on: most of the goodness is just under the skin
  • Berries The darker the better, like blueberries, squashed to avoid the risk of choking. They’re fun for your grandchild to pick up. Strawberries have the mot vitamin C of any fruitgrandparent feeding baby
  • Grapefruit and orange wedges Full of vitamin C and supernutrients
  • Eggs (only after 6 months) Hugely nutritious, with all the B vitamins, including B12 for brain and nerve growth
  • Porridge Start early so he will eat this food all through life, as it lowers cholesterol
  • Olives From the time they could pick them up, all my grandchildren loved natural olives – a good course of vitamin E and essential fats
  • Prunes Soft and juicy to suck on, a rich source of iron, and good for bowel health
  • Wholegrains (only after 6 months) Cereal, bread, and pasta for fibre, roughage, and B vitamins
  • Pomegranate juice Dilute with water (one in four to 12 months, one in two thereafter) for healthy kidneys
