The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
Foods for toddlers are best served in mashed, sliced, or chopped in small portions to prevent choking hazards.
To help your toddler associate food with fun, we’ve designed a series of food-related flashcards that you can play with your child. The reverse side even includes useful nutritional information for you – because we believe no one is too old for flashcards.
