Guidance on first foods

It is recommended that babies be exclusively breastfed for at least the first 6 months of life. At approximately 4 to 6 months of age, your doctor may give you the green light to introduce solid foods to your baby. Signs that your baby may be ready for solids can include: being able to eat from a spoon, to sit with support, to turn their head, and to grasp and raise objects to their mouth.

We understand how important it is to you that your baby establishes healthy eating habits right from the start. The Green Monkey Guide to Starting Solids is a resource designed to make introducing solid foods to your little monkey a little easier. Please keep in mind that you should make all decisions about your child’s diet under the guidance of your child’s pediatrician or nutritionist, who understands your child’s individual needs.
