When you decide your baby is ready to try solid foods, you may wonder just what food you should start with! An easier way to approach this milestone is to focus on the nutrients that the potential foods contain. Iron is in high demand in your baby’s body around this age, so choose options that are packed with it. Try Iron-fortified cereals, pureed meats, or pureed veggies that are high in iron (like spinach).
