What is a “Stage 1” baby food?
6-8 Months – Baby Let’s Commence to Eat

“Baby” cereal and soft-cooked thinly pureed fruits and veggies should really be baby’s first solid food experiences. Single ingredients only and at a space of 4 days apart with introducing each new food. You could miss out the cereal and begin with a fruit-like avocado or start with a veggie like butternut squash or sweet potato.

Stage 1 Baby Food is really a term that relates to baby foods which can be highly pureed and strained. These foods are appropriate for babies that are just being introduced to solid foods. The foods in this range are targeted to babies who are between the ages of (4) 6 to 8 months old.

Stage 1 baby foods are thin and runny and are foods that are the best on the allergy scale. Stage 1 baby foods are typically those foods which are also easier digested with a tiny tummy. A few of these foods include, sweet potatoes, butternut or winter squash and carrots. The word “Stage 1” was introduced by the Beechnut Baby Food Company to let parents know that these foods work because of their infants who are just being introduced to solid foods.

There is an increasing trend of parents skipping “stage 1” foods which are thin and runny purees. Many parents are turning to a more baby-led weaning approach and are offering soft-cooked small items of age-appropriate foods as they begin to introduce solid foods. Your child could be thinking about this feeding approach!
