Baby Food Schedule For 6 To 9 Months

This baby food schedule suggests some nutritious foods to offer your 6 to 9 month baby.

Please note that it is important to discuss the introduction of all new foods with your pediatrician, as he or she will be acquainted with your family’s medical history and will be able to advise you if certain foods are not appropriate for your child.

Notes about this baby food schedule

Most pediatricians recommend that babies can be introduced to a wide range of foods from 6 months, including some of the foods that were previously considered ‘high risk’ for babies under one year of age.

Revised AAP recommendations in 2008 stated:

…Although solid foods should not be introduced before 4 to 6 months of age, there is no current convincing evidence that delaying their introduction beyond this period has a significant protective effect on the development of atopic disease regardless of whether infants are fed cow milk protein formula or human milk. This includes delaying the introduction of foods that are considered to be highly allergic, such as fish, eggs, and foods containing peanut protein.”

Of course, it’s up to you and your pediatrician to determine the best time to introduce certain foods, but we’ve suggested delaying some foods a little if we (or other parents) have found them to be responsible for causing excessive gas or other digestive upsets!

In order to keep this chart as easy to read as possible, we haven’t added too many details…

…but if you’d like to learn more about each food listed, then just click on the ‘Baby Food Recipes’ tab in the purple menu at the top of this page. You’ll find the answers to all your questions about a wide range of common foods, along with lots of tasty and nutritious recipes!
