Make a chart to keep track of what foods you introduce to your baby 

  • Introduce one new food at a time.
  • Wait 3-5 days before introducing another new food.
  • If your baby rejects the new food, present it again in a week.
  • Offer favorite foods regularly.
  • Use a chart to record new foods and reactions.
    • Your chart can include: Type of food, Date first tried, Reaction, Date later tried, Reaction then
first solid foods
