Offer single-ingredient foods that contain no sugar or salt. Wait three to five days between each new food to see if your baby has a Important nutrients. Iron and zinc are important nutrients in the second half of your baby’s first year.

These nutrients are.

This is called weaning.

There is no evidence that waiting to introduce baby-safe (soft), allergy-causing foods, such as eggs, dairy, soy, peanuts, or fish, beyond 4 to 6 months of age prevents food allergy.

Starting your baby on solid food before 4 months introduces food when your baby’s immune and digestive systems aren’t fully equipped to properly process food and defend against potential.
