Stage 1 of baby weaning is a new experience for your baby. It will take them a few weeks to get used to solids so build up slowly from your baby’s first tastes to 1, 2 and then 3 meals a day.
Once weaning picks up at around 6-and-a-half to 7 months, use this baby food meal planner to plan your baby’s meals and feed then a variety of nutritious and tasty purees in addition to their usual milk feeds. This plan also suggests finger foods for mums keen on getting their babies to feed themselves, so print it out and stick it on your fridge and you won’t even need to think about which meal comes next.
Our baby food meal planners are also designed to reassure you throughout each stage. Every baby is different and this meal planner should only be used as a guide. Always go at your baby’s pace and never force feed them. If you’re worried about your baby’s weight or have any questions, ask your health visitor.
