Welcome to Food 101: A Nutrition Guide for New Parents. Graduating from mother’s milk or formula is a huge milestone, and a huge responsibility as parents! We all want to make sure our babies are getting the nutrition they need to develop into strong healthy toddlers. Food 101 was created for first time parents seeking practical, tactical advice on what, how, and when to feed their baby solid foods. Most other programs offer information based on age but here, we focus on your child’s story – which may vary by age. Is your child rolling over? Sitting? Laughing, or crawling? The things your child is doing indicates where they are developmentally and tells you what they’re ready for in terms of solid foods. Here, you can match your child’s story to one of the stories below and make your feeding plan from there. Click on the baby below that you think most closely matches your child and watch a brief video describing the baby’s developmental milestones and get some nutrition/feeding pointers.
