Is your baby looking like he/she is getting ready to take your food right out of your mouth? They may be getting ready to eat! Around 4-6 months old, babies start to show signs of readiness for solids like being able to sit with support, have good head & neck control and trying to reach for food to put in their mouth. Our team of dietitians has developed a webinar to share with you what types of foods should be introduced first, which textures to offer, and strategies on how to prevent your baby to become a picky eater in the future. You can view the webinar and learn more about our Infant and Toddler Feeding Groups at https://www.hamiltonfht.ca/en/groups-workshops/infant-feeding.aspx
