How to Introduce Fish in Baby’s Diet: Fish & Vegetable Soup for Babies

Video taken from the channel: ShishuWorld

You can give your child fish or shellfish at any time after they’ve gotten a good start with solid foods. A: For most babies, doctors recommend waiting until 9 months to introduce fish (like sole or salmon) and 12 months before trying shellfish (like shrimp, clams, and lobster). 4. Hold off on shellfish until 12 months Doctors recommend waiting until about the one-year-old mark before introducing shellfish into a toddler’s diet. Shellfish can cause a severe allergic reaction that is more dangerous the younger the toddler is. In principle, the AAP tells us you could choose to give babies shellfish from 6 months of age, after consulting your pediatrician, and after your baby has positively tolerated other first foods.

There are some exception to this rule, read below. Are there risks in giving babies shellfish?Shellfish can be a healthy part of your child’s diet soon after she begins to eat solid food, usually when she’s around 4 to 6 months. But if your baby has chronic eczema or a food allergy, talk to the doctor first before giving your baby shellfish. You’ll want to check with the doctor because shellfish is one of the top allergenic foods, and most doctors recommend starting with.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against giving your baby or young child under-cooked seafood as the bacteria pose a threat to them that adults aren’t effected by. When giving you baby fish or shellfish for the first time, make sure you introduce it the same way you introduce all new foods to them: one at a time. Shellfish should be safe to consume during pregnancy, but only when they are completely cooked through.

With the traditional uncooked or half-cooked shellfish dishes, you are running a risk for food poisoning. Pregnancy is a time of many changes in your body, and needless to say, this includes food requirements and habits. More conservative suggestions for offering fish to babies state to wait until your baby is one year old for fish and possibly delay to age three for shellfish and crustaceans, like lobster, clams, oysters, and shrimp, especially if severe allergies run in the family. Research indicates that this delayed introduction may not be necessary. Fish can be a healthy part of your child’s diet soon after he begins to eat solid food, usually when he’s around 4 to 6 months old.

But if your baby has. In fact, some evidence suggests that starting before the first birthday is better, as described in Feeding Baby Green. I do suggest avoiding the foods that are the most common causes of allergies.

List of related literature:

A child should eat no more than one tuna sandwich a week, and before the age of five he or she should stick to flounder, haddock, sardines, crab, or shrimp.

  • Easiest way to raise baby fish -outdoor garden tanks that get some natural live food put a few fry in every spring collect survivors in early september ish

  • I had these auto feeder for about 20 years, I have had them drop into the aquarium 5 times and stop working, I put them to dry and it all ways work after. bullet proof.

  • Hey I have a question! my fancy guppy was pregnant I didny even know. I saw these small black things wiggling around at the corner bottom Right side of the tank. I zoomed in they were live wiggling an asking for help! I guess they saw what happened to their siblings.��But do I have to put them inside a smaller tank,I separated them from the parents of course. I have 12 left can I put them inside a ten gallon tank??? With filter an air bubbles?

  • i feed my baby koi fry about 5 to 6 times a day small portions as you said so they dont get too full between meals. but have to watch the ammonia levels as they grow.

  • My mom was questioning why I fed my fish so much because I feed them 4 times a day. So I brought her this video and it just confused her could you make a 3 minute version plz.

  • while I didn’t get THAT feeder, I have to say I love the growth and color my guppy fry have gotten in just the past 5 weeks. I miiiight be overfeeding a little with the New life Spectrum powder (the autofeeder has pulverized flakes. So THANK YOU for another great video.

  • I use the same auto feeder and it works great. I mainly have small tetras in a 150 gal, so I am not wanting size. I believe I have healthier and longer lived fish with the auto feeder.

  • I do 3 feedings a day, and daily 50% water changes after the second feed. My electric blue acara fry are loving it so far, and are growing pretty quickly. I feed them NLS Grow in the morning, BBS as the second feed, and finally NLS Grow again in the evening. If I didn’t have to manually do daily water changes that feeder would be a good idea, but not everyone has an automated water change system! I will be picking one up for my display tank and trying it out though, since I only do water changes every 3 days there.

    Thanks for the great video!

  • Man… Start doing 10 or 15 mins video which would contain all info which you share.. no one has much patience to watch long videos….. Would be helpful for both of us….

  • What is this pizza thing you are referencing? I was under the impression that you only ate tacos.

    More related to the video-I have been thinking about getting one of these to keep parental predation down. I did not even think about the fact that it might make my fry grow up faster. Thanks for the info.

  • I’m going to give it a shot.
    I’m setting up two 40g breeders for a dovii project.
    what food do you recommend for small 1 inch dovii?

  • Thank you Cory for another informative livestream mate. I’m watching other Fish YouTubers live-streams less and less as they are just chatter with very little fish related info. Yours is always full of great fish knowledge & experience and I take a lot away from it. ��

  • Great video, thanks!

    Would these be workable over a colony of neolamprologus multifasciatus? What food would you feed those guys?

    The big males in my colony run a pretty tight ship, so I’ve been using finely crushed flake to make sure enough disperses to get to the weaker females and fry.

    Do you sell the autofeeders in your physical store?

  • Good video.  I use the Eheim feeders for years.  The problem I have is if I set it for 4 or 5 feedings a day (with less food each turn), some of the smaller and less aggressive fish have trouble competing for the food.  On the other hand, if I have a larger “dump” of food twice a day, all the fish are able to grab some food.  This is why I have stuck with twice a day, and I have fewer runts that missed out on a lot of meals.

  • So its been about 5 weeks since i switched to an auto feeder. I can say this really does work…my fancy goldfish and comets have significantly grown since i started…..its a little insane how fast they’re growing now. This is one of the best tips i’ve found on the internet. Thanks a lot for this awesome tip dude. It’s $$$ imo

  • This is great! I am impressed with your video series!!! I am getting back into fish after 30 yrs! Your presentation is informative and comfortable to watch! I have a 29 community tank. 20 gallon fry and plant nursery tank the feeder is going on this one for sure! Getting ready to set up a 55 gallon with angels and schooling fish.

    I look forward to all u have to offer.

  • totally off topic, but ive been thinking about it since you briefly mentioned it. home tacos……do u make the shells or jyst buy em and add meat and veggies.

  • Some great tips on the feeder i didn’t know all of that. Only problem is i love feeding my fish. I will try one out on my fry tank though.

  • This is a great tip. I have a few of these but I’ve only used them while I’m away. Another thing that will help the growth rate is increased water changes.

  • Nice one Cory. I too use a few of these auto feeders (and broke one after dropping it in the other tank the other day!) Is that manual feeding schedule you talked about just for fry/juveniles or for all of your fish? Do you ever just hit the button on that auto feeder as your “extra feeding”?; or do you just throw in something frozen or live?

  • That’s Crazy First Time Fish Keeper and I got surprised with a clutch of Fry this Morning from my Green Lantern Platy. Thank You for the Live stream.

  • I have my females African cichlid in a all female tank. Can they false hold? They all was holding at one point of time but as they was holding I pulled them out of my show tank. They have been in a 55 for a few months now after spitting them out. One if mine is holding and I know for sure there is no males.

  • Babysat a balloon mollie for a friend. Wound up w/babysitting her fry…NOT my plan, but she knew zero about fry. Glad to help my friend…they are cute, I do mostly s/w but it was refreshing to care for them. None were loss; like you I am a veteran fish keeper pro. I keep 2 pico QT tanks running so I was able to handle a “surprise” birth at 3 a.m…lol. I’ll think about a topic soon����

  • How do you successfully acclimate a fish from Brackish to Freshwater?
    A local Pet Store has a Arrowhead Puffer in their Brackish section. However, from my research from multiple sources, it states this Puffer is a Freshwater Puffer.
    The Puffer appears healthy and active for the past 3 weeks in their Brackish section. If I decide to purchase this Puffy, show should I transition to the typical aquarium it requires?

  • You found the species of fish u want. U go to ur local fish store to pick them up. How do u determine the right ones to get. Ie; signs of sickness, color, sex, size….. im sure there is plenty more things to look for before selecting the fish but can u shed light on that and how u pick out fish from a fish store.

  • Hi Zinzo I have a question for you the fishes you put at the end of your video what are they. The reason I ask is that at the restaurant I go to eat at they have those but they also don’t know the name of those fishes.

  • I believe you because it happened to me with my fish too..They have grown very fast and they are very healthy but I do regular water changes too.

  • it’s funny how you just made this video which is great but I just found out I have baby fry in my tank and I save four but two of them was like barely see them naked eye but the other two was a little bit bigger not yet but the thing is I don’t know who the female or how to tell if they are holding so the only thing I can do when I see them is save the ones I can save but at the moment I’m not sure exactly how to raise them but it’s a great video you just made

  • I have a cool topic! Do a list of fish on your bucketlist, fish that you want to keep one day. If you want zenzo to do a video on his bucketlist fish, like this comment

  • I have a 2 more questions about breeding fish, what is the coolest fish you have breed, the second is I am getting my first summer breeding pond and I’m getting white clouds do you have any tips for breeding them? ( The fish will be outside)
