Fifth Weaning Step
The time has now arrived. From 12 months of age and onwards you can gradually switch over to feeding your baby the same meals as the rest of the family. Most babies already have some teeth and, in addition to milk-based and porridge meals, will be able to join in with normal family meals. To begin with make sure that food is easily digestible: anything causing wind or which is very fatty or spicy should be avoided. During the gradual transition to family meals evening porridge meals can be halved. You could offer your baby a slice of bread and butter accompanied by fruit or vegetables. Lunch should consist of vegetables and potatoes/rice/pasta. Meat and fish are optional. This will gradually introduce your child to family meals and help him/her learn to feed him/herself.
Growing Up Milk 3 is suitable for the increasing nutritional needs of older babies from about 12 months onwards.
Holle Organic Fruit Bars are ideal as a snack or a quick dessert for babies from 12 months onwards. The bars come in two particularly mild fruit combinations – 'Apple and Banana' and 'Apple and Pear' – and are made from a ﬁne purée that is easy for babies to digest. The fruit bars come in an ideal portion size of 25g which is very practical for little hands and tummies. Because of their thin spelt wafer coating little children can hold the bars comfortably in their hands without mess. No added reﬁned sugar.
