Babies’ palates are clean slates, so we think it’s important that we help to start things off on the right track by using only subtle, gentle and natural flavours.
Our fruit and oat smoothies for 6+ months are certified organic, natural, and free from artificial additives, genetically modified ingredients, and unnecessary salt and sugar.
We only work with certified organic ingredient suppliers and product manufacturers to make our 6+ months baby pouch range.
We will visit and review each and every single one of our suppliers before we agree to partner with them. We meet their team, discuss our requirements, learn from their expertise and take time to form meaningful and lasting relationships to ensure the highest level of quality control of manufacturing processes and facilities.
Starting with purees is the first transition into food textures for most babies. You can choose some that are very thin consistencies like Little Bellies fruit purees for 4+ months and others that are slightly thicker blends like Little Bellies fruit and oat smoothies for 6+ months.
Start with 1-2 tablespoons and offer more if they finish. Allow your baby’s hunger and fullness cues to guide you in determining how much to offer. Do not force the spoon into their mouth. This can mean holding the spoon a bit further so they lean in to take a bite, or you can let them grab the spoon from you and explore the food.
In the beginning, when babies are around 6 months there will be a lot of exploring; your baby may spit out some of the food, squish it and only lick or taste it. This is how they learn to eat! It’s a process that takes time. We recommend you start with one meal in the first month of starting solids and slowly add in more meals at times that work with your schedule. By around 9 months, your baby will probably be eating 3 times a day as you do.
