As your son/daughter gets older, you can try adding new foods into his/her diet, like thicker purees. Thicker purees are smooth and thick enough to stay on the spoon. Stage II baby foods and hummus, for example, are thicker purees. The amount of food your son/daughter needs depends on age. The charts below will help you figure out how much food you should feed your son/daughter based on age. These charts provide general guidance, but all kids are a little different. When feeding your son/daughter, it’s best to follow his/her hunger cues, or signs and behaviors that he/she is still hungry or getting full.
Did you know?
It’s okay if your son/daughter isn’t eating the recommended amount of solid foods. He/she might need more breast milk or formula to make sure he/she eats enough calories to grow and develop. Talk to your doctor or a Registered Dietitian, who can make a personalized plan for your child.
