Little Foodease offers four stages to gradually introduce your baby to solid food, with a variety of ingredients and textures appealing to your child’s developmental needs. The ages associated with each stage is only a guideline and certain stages could be introduced earlier or later, depending on your baby. Our meals will nourish your child’s growth and encourage a love of healthy foods right from the start.
Our meals are approved by Jordana Smith , Registered Dietitian (BSc Med (Hons) Nutrition and Dietetics (UCT)) – Special Interest in Infant and Maternal Nutrition.
“I believe that the way we start feeding our children will set the pathway for their future relationship with food and weight maintenance. Feed them when they are little, and they will feed themselves well when they are older!”
WHY ARE TEXTURES SO IMPORTANT?
Chewing strengthens cheek and jaw muscles f or normal speech development. From stage 2, we start introducing slight textures, encouraging baby to chew using his/her gums. By the time toddler stage is reached, chewing will come naturally.
LET’S GET STARTED!
Get a good bib, preferably a wipe clean, nice soft feeding spoons
and a suitable seat depending on baby’s needs for support.
