From the Publisher
Make mealtime stress-free as they grow:
Stage 1: Typically Ages 6 to 8 Months
Baby, your table is ready! There are so many exciting “firsts” with your baby, and starting solids is one of the biggest.
Stage 2: Typically Ages 8 to 10 Months
Now that your baby has become comfortable with Stage 1 foods, it’s time to introduce Stage 2 foods, with thicker textures that serve as the bridge between creamy puréed foods and soft finger foods.
Stage 3: Typically Ages 9 to 12 Months
The next phase of your baby’s culinary journey introduces finger foods—firm yet squishable foods that your baby can pick up using their thumb and forefinger and easily chew. Finger foods help build independence and fine motor skills by letting your baby self-feed.
Easy Family Dinners: 12 Months and Older
Once your child masters the pincer grasp and feeds themselves, your whole family can eat the same meal together. You’ll find easy dinner recipes the whole family will love, with modifications as needed to make them safe for your toddler.
