What can I feed my 6 month old?

  • Mashed fruit e.g. banana or cooked/pureed apricots, apple or pear
  • Do not add any salt or sugar

Milk is still an important part of your baby's diet, so carry on breastfeeding or giving formula. As your baby eats more solid food, his/her milk intake will continue to decrease Introduce finger foods - these encourage your baby to chew, even if they don't have teeth yet.
