Is your baby ready for solid foods?
Most babies are ready for solid foods at around six to eight months. However, the time to introduce finger foods varies from one baby to another. Fruity finger foods like cherries, watermelon and strawberries are good and healthy food choices for your baby.
Give your baby foods that are soft, easily mashed and appropriate for her age. Let her explore and experience a variety of food textures and colors to touch, smell, and taste.
Here are three sweet fruity clips featured in some of No Slippy Hair Clippy’s fruit pinch clips:
The oh-so-delicious cherries pack a lot of important nutrients for your baby. Cherries are a good source of fiber, Vitamin C, and calcium. Your baby may begin to eat cherries at about eight months or sooner with the approval of your pediatrician. You may puree or mash the cherries as needed or serve as a finger food.
As yummy as the cherry, the Kennedy Cherries hair clip features two tiny and sweet cherries on a non-slip clip. You can choose from two available colors, red (left) and shocking pink (right).
Because of its soft consistency, watermelon is usually at the top of the list of many moms’ finger foods for babies, especially during the hot summer months. Watermelons are packed with nutrients like Vitamin A and C, and often reasonably priced. In addition to serving them plain, you can puree watermelons too!
Adorn your baby with a lovely watermelon clip from No Slippy Hair Clippy. The Kennedy Watermelon features in pink (left) and shocking pink (right) slices of crochet watermelon on a non-slip pinch clip.
Sweet and juicy strawberries are a great source of Vitamin C, with strong anti-oxidant properties because of their phenol content. Many moms introduce fresh strawberries to their little ones prior to 12 months of age (once again, with approval from a pediatrician). Fresh strawberries can sometimes cause food reactions in babies, so be sure to ask your pediatrician first. Cooked strawberries, however, usually do not cause allergic reactions. You can mash or puree slices of strawberries or bake strawberry maple muffins.
Make your baby look as irresistibly sweet as these strawberry hair clips! Go for a clip-on-the-side hairstyle with the Kennedy Strawberry from Hair Clippy. Choose from three available colors – bubblegum, red and shocking pink.
