Best Super Foods for Baby

Because of their tiny tummies, babies don't eat much. That's why it's important to make sure the foods they do eat contain lots of nutrients. Learn how you can make the most of mealtime with your little one with this quick guide to age-appropriate power foods that pack a big nutritional punch.

In general, the power foods in our guide are appropriate for babies 6 months and older, when prepared according to your baby's eating skills. But talk with your pediatrician before serving eggs, fish, citrus, and yogurt if your baby is less than a year old because these foods can cause an allergic reaction. Certain foods, such as meat, fruit, and vegetable purees, may be gradually introduced earlier than 6 months if your baby is ready for them. Just remember that solid foods of any kind should not be introduced before 4 months of age.

Since babies develop at different rates, ask your pediatrician if you're not sure when to introduce certain foods or which foods are best for your baby.
