Introducing your baby to solid foods, often called weaning onto foods, should start when your baby is around 6 months old. It’s a really important step in your baby’s development and it can be great fun to explore new flavours and textures together. This booklet, from the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative and the Department of Health, is here to help guide you through this exciting time, so you can be sure you’re giving your baby a healthy start in life.
