Infant Feeding Resources

Resources about what, when and how to introduce solid foods at around six months of age.

 These are designed to help parents and caregivers recognise the signs of infant readiness to start solid foods and the signs of infants' feeling full. There is evidence that preserving infants’ natural ability to self-regulate how much food they need can help children grow up to be a healthy weight in adulthood.
 
At infantfeeding.nz you can find everything you need to know about when and how to start your baby on solids. There are tips to help you know your baby has had enough to eat. Plus lots of easy baby food recipes.
