Transcripts

I am Lisa Wilson, Certified Health Counselor here in Northern Virginia. We are working with baby food. Now, we are talking about consistency. Now, when a baby first starts to eat, the consistency will really resemble like -- remember, Its more about the baby learning to use their tongue and it actually is about getting meal into that. So, a lot of is going to come right back out. So, again the first food should really resemble like what say you are going to use your favorite peace of equipment, the food processor. I have some sweet potato in here right now. I will go ahead, and grind it up, then we are going to check on it. I really dont think that this is thin enough for a baby, so I am going to go ahead add some mothers milk. I am using formula because I dont have any mothers milk. Go ahead and turn it on. Alright, check it. Oh, here we go. This is a gorgeous, look at that. This is perfect; its actually, exactly what you want for your babys first food. So, four to six months this is exactly what the babys first food is going to look like. You are going to take your cues from your baby. So, I am going to show you what it is going to look like from six to eight months. Beautiful baby food, this smells so good. Your baby is going to love this. Okay, here we go, eight to ten months, starting to get a little thicker and finally ten to twelve months you are really going to see some chunks in your baby food because at this stage your baby can handle it. Again take your cues from your baby. Its that simple.
