After 4–6 months of age, if breast milk no longer fully satisﬁes your baby, you can start giving a ﬁrst lunchtime vegetable purée.
To begin with, oﬀer your baby just a few teaspoons before his or her milk feed. Slowly increase the amount until the whole milk feed is replaced by the vegetable meal.
Ideally, use only a single vegetable for the ﬁrst meal so that your baby’s digestive system has time to get used to diﬀerent foods. Carrots, parsnip or pumpkin are mild and are, therefore, ideal vegetables for your baby’s ﬁrst solid food. If you introduce solid foods slowly to your baby you will more easily be able to discover possible intolerances or allergies. As a rule of thumb, introduce only one new food per week and once a month replace a milk feed with a new weaning meal.
The Holle Jar range has been specially developed in accordance with commonly recommended weaning plans. You can choose from a variety of single food jars and progress to jars with additional vegetables, added potatoes or even meat. For example you can start with 'Carrots', continue with 'Carrots with Potatoes' and go on to 'Carrots, Potatoes and Beef'. The jar range has also been developed so that you can support your baby’s individual digestive needs. There is a wide choice, from stool regulating to stool loosening properties; carrots for example have stool ﬁrming properties. As an alternative to jars containing rice there are vegetable meals with potatoes because they are less ﬁrming. Potatoes, like grain, give your baby energy in the form of carbohydrates.
Holle has developed its jar range to give the widest choice according to your baby’s age, tastes and individual needs. The jars are split into three age groups – after 4 months, from 6 months and from 8 months - to make it easier to choose the right jar according to your baby’s age. Junior Menu Jars (from 8 months) contain slightly coarser pieces to encourage older babies to chew.
If some ingredients need to be avoided because your baby doesn’t like a taste or even because of intolerances or allergies, it is easy to do so. More adventurous ingredients such as peas, quince or fruits of the forest have been included in the range so you can give your baby an even wider choice of taste experiences. Holle’s carefully selected raw materials are rich in nutrients and are grown to organic and/or biodynamic standards. As you would expect, Holle has stringent quality control measures in place throughout all stages of production.
