When Should You Start Solids?

When it comes to starting your child out on food, remember that according to the World Health Organization (WHO), kids can start eating foods by 6 months.

According to food writer Bee Wilson, taste is based on familiarity (1). So help your child become familiar with new, enticing foods. Have them taste these food, not necessarily eat them. Put some food on the tip of your finger and have them taste it from there.

The Signs for When to Start Serving Solids

Waiting too long to feed your baby solids can cause your child to reject foods altogether; they may soon only want breast milk or formula (2). You don’t want this to happen. That’s why it’s important to focus on feeding your child when the time is right; when they’re ready.

In order for a child to be ready to eat they have to meet some criteria.

Signs Your Child is Ready:

  • Your baby can grasp on things with their hands
  • Your baby is ready to chew
  • Your baby has stopped tongue thrusting, all together (this is when their tongue is not yet developed and pushes food out of their mouth)
  • Your child can sit up
