First foods (around 6 months, but not before 4 months)

  • Well-cooked rice with extra water to a pureed texture (congee)
  • Wattie’s 4-6+ months blue colour coded baby food
  • Heinz Organic 4-6+ month baby food

  • Add to previous foods
  • Increased variety of cooked pureed fruits e.g. apricots, peaches
  • Farex Breakfast On the Go pouches: Apple & Oatmeal and Creamy Baby Porridge with Apple

  • Heinz Organic 6 month baby food e.g. Creamy Oats with Fig & Sultana and Apple, Guava & Berry Porridge

From 7 months

  • Add to previous foods
  • Increased variety of cooked mashed fruits e.g. kiwifruit
  • Introduce yoghurt, small slices of cheese
  • Cooked mashed egg
  • Start to offer small pieces of toast (white or wholemeal bread) as finger food

From 8 months

can i use normal white rice to start solids of my baby?

Hi Anshu,

We are working hard to get these back on shelves as soon as we can. In the meantime yes you can use white rice, well cooked in plenty of water and then pureed. If you would like further advice around starting solids you can call our Careline on 0800 222 936 to speak with one of our Dietitians.

Thanks, The ForBaby team
