Pureés by Age & Stage

Introducing solid food to your baby is a step-by-step process.

It is important that baby's first foods are gentle and easy to digest. Then, as their gut develops, a wider variety of ingredients can be added to the menu.

In this section, you'll find baby food recipes that you can make at home suitable for each stage of growth.

Always consult with your paediatrician before introducing solid foods to your baby.

Ages and Stages Baby Pureé Selection
Baby 4-6 months (Stage 1)

4-6 months+

Stage 1

The AAP and WHO both recommend exclusive breastfeeding until 6-months. That said, the AAP suggest that baby may be ready to start solids between 4 to 6-months. Watch out for their physical cues, which include watching you as you eat and reaching out for food. If your baby is eating solids from 4-months, here are some safe and nutritious recipes they can try.

Baby 6-8 months (Stage 1)

6-8 months+

Stage 1

Stage 1  foods don't need to be bland! "It's important to introduce a variety of flavors, textures and colors." (AAP) Breastmilk or formula will continue to be baby’s primary source of nutrition, so first foods are more about fun and exploration. Introduce new ingredients one at a time. This makes it easier to spot the cause of any allergic reaction.

Baby 8-10 months (Stage 2)

8-10 months+

Stage 2

Stage 2 Baby Foods are processed or blended chunkier and can include new ingredients that your baby’s developing gut can healthily digest. Some protein rich foods, dairy, and additional grains may be added, plus fruits and veggies which are more fibrous and acidic. Here are some Stage 2 recipes that are exciting, delicious, and nutritious. Yummy!

Baby 8-10 months (Stage 3)

10-12 months+

Stage 3

Stage 3 Foods follow the same trend introducing new ingredients that your baby’s digestive system can now tolerate while extracting the goodness. The menu can often now include more protein dense foods including dairy products. More acidic fruits and berries are often tried out at this stage, too. Give these a try.

Pureés by Fruit

Fruit, glorious fruit!

Fruit offer a huge variety of color, flavor, and texture. They also pack a myriad of nutritional benefits.
