It certainly can be an exciting time. From their first experience with a family holiday, to enjoying new sights, sounds and smells, there is so much to look forward to. Naturally, we know new foods mean new tastes for baby this Thanksgiving. While it can be fun to show the baby everything and watch the faces they make, it's also important to ensure you know what they can and can't eat and how to serve up their own Thanksgiving feast.
To help you get through the holidays, we have some fabulous Registered Dietitian approved tips for baby's first Thanksgiving!
While your baby doesn’t yet know what dessert is, you can still offer them some if you like. Tasty treats like homemade pumpkin pie can be easily transformed for your baby. For babies six-to-eight months in age, scoop out pie filling and puree it until fine and runny, adding formula or breast milk to thin the texture. You can also skip the extra effort by offering baby a sweet treat like PC® Organics Blackberry Cobbler Flavour Pouch. Remember to keep the sweet servings small while you introduce your baby to this new area of deliciousness.
Foods to Avoid
While adults enjoy loading their turkey with condiments like gravy and cranberry sauce, serving these items to your baby isn’t a good idea. Babies don’t need the added sodium and sugar these condiments contain. Stick to plain foods as your baby gets used to consuming and digesting solids.
PC Organics foods and snacks for little ones give you peace of mind knowing you can trust your baby is getting the nutrition they need through wholesome, first-time solids.
