ESTABLISHING HEALTHY HABITS: The introduction of appropriate complementary food at around six months is extremely important as it plays a crucial role in the child’s physical and cognitive development.
As your baby grows into a young child, his / her nutritional needs change quickly.
At around six months, breast milk alone is no longer sufficient to meet a baby's energy and nutrition requirements. The baby is also at a stage of development where he / she can start to swallow non-liquid food.
Complementary foods help to support optimal growth, brain development and the building of natural defenses.
The introduction of complementary foods is a critical point and it strongly influences the development of healthy eating habits and feeding skills, and helps children appreciate food diversity as they grow up.
Acquiring good eating habits from the start helps lay the foundation for health and wellness throughout life.
