4-6 months is usually a developmental milestone for most of the toddlers. It’s the time when they get control over their necks and need most of their nutrition to develop their organs, gain energy and promote their growth. FoodSteps offers you nutritious baby purees to help you with this crucial phase of your child’s development. Make sure that you feed them with the right amount of purees instead of overfeeding regardless of their appetite. They will display a few signs for you to understand when to stop. They will close their mouths when you approach them with food. They will turn their head away when the spoon reaches their mouths. If you still persist and feed them, they will spit out food in their mouths. When this happens, it’s better give them some time to digest what’s already inside their stomach and then be ready for their next meal.
Every child is different and so are their palates. The flavours that one loves may not be suitable for another child. Each one’s tolerance for the introduction of new foods will be different. Parents should always be aware of it before feeding them. Ensure that they are hungry before feeding them. As FoodSteps baby purees come with a detachable spoon, use it to feed them with convenience. If they are rejecting the food, keep it aside and try different flavour instead of forcing them to consume everything you offer. If you find any specific flavour that they like, make it a springboard to introduce more flavours in combination with that. To aid you with that, FoodSteps offers you a wide variety of fruit and vegetable purees for 6 months+ babies.
