I partnered with Stonyfield for this sponsored post and I thought it would be fun to talk about some of my favorite foods for baby! Obviously there are tons of options and most people would simply say FRUITS and VEGGIES. Yes. All of that is true! My pediatrician gave use the advice to give him anything and everything (except honey)! He is 9 months old now and he eats almost everything that we do. We try our best to give him whole foods that are great for his growing body! At the same time, we are giving him little bits of everything we eat! We love doing this! And he does too! He gets used to our foods and will hopefully be a good eater!
Other than the normal fruits and veggies, I have complied a list of our favorite foods for baby!
Favorite Foods for Baby
- Plain Cheerios
- Black beans
- Small chunks of cheese
- Organic Whole Milk Yogurt
- Whole Wheat Penne Pasta
- Pancakes or Waffles
I love that all of these options are different than the norm, but still totally healthy for your babe! We also love to give him little bites of meat and seafood too! His current favorite on this list would have to be black beans, but I think waffles and yogurt come in a CLOSE second.
Cheerios, pasta, oatmeal, and pancakes are great ways to get in whole wheat and other great grains! We buy frozen whole wheat waffles and cut them into small pieces and he loves it!
We usually start finger foods around 7-8 months once he has gotten used to baby food. Also, it does not matter if they have teeth! Their gums can do a lot! 🙂
The funny this is that TJ will find the smallest pieces of trash or toys on the ground and they go straight in his mouth, but when we first started finger foods he would NOT put it in his mouth by himself! It was so funny. Luckily, he figured it out and he is LOVING it.
Black beans are GREAT for you and that’s good because our baby LOVES it. They are easy to heat up and easy for him to pick up. We love that we don’t have to do any extra chopping either. Perfect bite sized for baby!
Ya’ll know we LOVE Stonyfield in this house and I am excited to partner with them again for this post. We received lots of the their YoBaby Organic yogurt to try and I am so thankful! Our baby loves it and I love all the yummy flavors it comes in! You can find it in plain, vanilla, blueberry, mango, pear, peach, banana, and apple! All of babies favorite fruit flavors. PLUS, the probiotics are great for his tiny tummy!
These are some of the amazing reasons we feed our baby Stonyfield!
