When the baby grows to about four months, simple breastfeeding can not meet the baby’s nutritional needs. It should be appropriate to add some supplementary food to the baby, and pureed food is the best choice.
Since babies do not have teeth at this time, pureed food is more convenient for babies to swallow directly to absorb the nutrients. But there are mixed reviews about pureed foods, so is this baby pureed food healthy?
Are baby purees healthy?
Pureed foods are the best choice for babies when they are new to food, and they are very healthy for babies. Generally speaking, starting from four months, in addition to breast milk or milk, the baby should gradually add some vegetable puree, apple puree, banana puree, etc. More than four months after the baby is born, the iron stored in the body has been basically exhausted. Breast milk or milk alone cannot meet the needs of the baby’s growth and development. Therefore, it is essential to add complementary foods and eat muddy foods.
Since the baby’s teeth have not erupted yet or just erupted, chewing and digestive function is not yet sound, so pureed food is the best shape of complementary food for infants. Fish, meat, eggs, shrimp, and pig liver all contain high-quality proteins that are essential to the human body and are also rich in minerals such as iron, zinc, phosphorus, and calcium, making them ideal ingredients for complementary foods.
You can make your own pureed foods or buy them from the store, but to make these pureed foods better for your baby’s development and growth, you need to follow the following points:
1. You should start adding new foods in small amounts, from thin to thick, fine to coarse, such as rice paste first, then thin porridge, thick porridge, and finally rice.
2. If your baby has diarrhea due to formula intolerance, do not abuse antibiotics. The right thing to do at this time is to prevent your baby from becoming dehydrated and replenish water on time. Vegetables can be fed from fine vegetable puree, then coarse vegetable puree, and finally chopped vegetables.
3. must add new food one after another, one kind of eating habit before adding another.
4. Do not give the baby to eat pureed food for a long time. Otherwise, it will affect the baby’s dental development. When the baby is one year old, he should eat some solid foods to better exercise his chewing ability.
The pureed complementary food is easy for the baby to swallow and easy to digest. The ingredients inside can replenish the lack of nutrients in the baby’s body in time, so it is very beneficial to the baby. However, it is essential to note that you must choose fresh food to make complementary food, and do not leave it too long after it is done to avoid spoiled food harming the baby’s health.
